Spring has sprung in Galway, and water levels are now perfect for all methods, with 2 sluice gates open on the weir. More fish are starting to be seen in the river, although there were just 2 reported for the week. Local angler Sean O’Toole landed his second fish of the season, a lovely 13.5lbs springer, taken while spinning, and Salthill angler Dave Lenihan took an 8.5lbs fish on the shrimp.

With water levels continuing at this good level and beautiful settled weather I would hope for more salmon to report in the next few days.
