Here is a picture of a wild Brown Trout for comparison. The thumb marks along the flanks are missing from the Trout. On the Salmon Parr the mouth is shorter and the tail fork is deeper.

Got a few more brownies this evening landed 3 of them lost about fur from their acrobatics. One was very close to the pound mark and threw the hook after a massive jump. I'll get him next time. Size 20 deer hair sedge did the damage again.

Lads do ye know which council is in charge of managing the river? I don't fish but just run along it. A tree fell before the huge weir at firhouse and a load of rubbish built up. Also i walked along the river near the rathfarnham end of the firhouse rd and there is a strong smell of sewage.

Was up around Ballsbridge this evening for an hour or so, not many hatches at all, few rises too.
If anybody is familiar with the Ballsbridge area, theres one about 1.5-2.5lb and he has a very strange marking near his tail, its like a white patch or stain on him, anybody know what this could be or see this chappy around?

Fished on the dodder this evening up by milltown and got a couple of fish. Decided to move down below the waterfall in clonskeagh to see if I could get something else. Managed to get about six small trout as well as a tiny trout about 2inches long. Hooked something that took me into my backing but lost it after a few head shakes sea trout maybe had the heart pumping though.

I saw three different foxes around the lansdowne dart station last night. they stood within a few feet of me. people are feeding different sets. i got a feeling its going to end badly for them.

also saw a rat whose body was a foot long and a small trout jump six inches out of the water. the heron nearby was not impressed.

thats a serious amount of city wildlife for a ten minute walk along the dodder from the small bridge from lansdowne to ballsbridge.

Sorry about the crappy picture it was starting to get dark. My biggest wild trout on the dodder to date he was about 3/4 of a pound not a huge fish but it put up an impressive fight. Got two other fish as well earlier on but nothing of any size.

If anyone found a green foam fly box over the last few days its mine I must have left it down somewhere. Have to get a marathon tying session in now to restock the box.

Spotted what I thought was an otter, it looked a bit bigger than a mink.

Managed to get out a couple of times this week already seem to getting a better stamp of fish the last few times out mixed in with some smaller ones. Managed another fish around 3/4 of a pound no picture as it was dark enough. Here are some others though. Anyone else been out recently?

I tried Liffey yesterday as well, but water has been released from Golden Fall dam. Not fishable at all. So l moved to Dodder. What a surprise, river was flooded. Water was released from Bohernabreena

Ye it was fairly high to be honest but I still managed to get some fish out of it last night. There was a good hatch of fly going on.
