Billy Thornton in our Ballina Office reports that conditions on the River Moy were far from ideal last week with low water, bright sunshine and high temperatures reducing angling effort considerably on the previous week. However 148 salmon were reported caught throughout the system.

With a good show of fish on most fisheries and the numbers of grilse moving into the river on each tide increasing, prospects are looking good for the week ahead.
