High water levels impact on angling on the Moy but good sea trout fishing in the Estuary

August 27th, 2015 | by

The Moy system had a reported catch of only 113 salmon for the week. Angling effort was very low and high water levels impacted on the fishing for most of the week.

However, anglers that were persistent enough were rewarded with some nice catches of fresh-run salmon. One of the lucky anglers was Markus Kaaser from Austria who had a 5 lbs. grilse on fly on the Foxford Fishery. Galway man, Peter Kelly, was one of the few anglers scoring further upriver. Peter caught 2 fish (4 lbs. & 6 lbs.) on bubble & fly on the East Mayo Anglers water.

The Moy Estuary produced a few sea trout during the week. Judd Ruane, skipper of the Pegasus, reported good fishing for some of his clients. Thirteen year old Peter Heffernan from London was particularly happy catching his first ever sea trout.
