Angling does not seem as important this week, when spring was overshadowed by news of the death of angler Michael Ruane from Salthill, Galway, on Lough Corrib on Monday. Inland Fisheries Ireland would like to offer its condolences to the family and friends of Michael. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis.
Water levels remained good all week, with just 4 sluice gates open on the weir, and a second fish of the season was landed on Tuesday by Brian O’Rourke from Tuam, a nice spring salmon of 8.5lbs. Settled weather this week and continuing nice water should see more fish coming into the river, and I hope to have more salmon to report from Galway soon.
