Colm Lynch from East Coast Angling in Navan reports that water levels are dropping and clearing following the recent rain. This has helped the salmon fishing in the Navan area and a number or big fish have been seen in the area.

The Boyne has always been noted for its big fish and Simon Cassidy from Summerhill has connected with a few nice fish recently. But like all battles, some you win and some you lose. Simon has caught and released one nice fish recently which weighed in at 13lbs. All the action is apparently on the Navan and District Angling Association facebook page. In addition to this fish, Simon also hooked and lost two other fish one of which was estimated to weigh between 20lb and 25lbs. Better luck next time Simon.

Most of the salmon action has been on the ramparts stretch, downstream of Blackcastle weir.
