Blackwater River Beats.
Here are four more beats from the Blackwater River, they are Bridgetown Priory, Ballinaroone, Killavullen and Ballygarrett Beats. The video shows in great detail the extent of each beat and in some cases the water depth i.e., deep pools, sand bars and fast runs along the lenght of the beat. The video was taken in very low water so one can now see the contours and pools that would otherwise be hidden in flood water conditions. I always say that you have to see a river in low water to understand how and where salmon will lie in medium and high water. At the time of making this video the water was only showing 28 at the guage which is summer low and yet there were still four springers taken in those few days.
