Water levels remained perfect all week, with one gate open, although temperatures have only begun to drop back to relatively normal values in the last day or two. Fish are still running in good numbers, and in spite of the hot weather, 26 salmon were landed for the week. Among the lucky anglers were Jim Barry, with 2 grilse on fly, and UK visitor Michael Righton, who had 3 fish on fly. Gerry Dooley from Dublin landed 2 fish on the fly, while Tom Tynan had 1 grilse on fly, as did John and Eunan O’Connor from Meath, who had a fish each on fly. Regular Dublin visitor Michael Rogers landed 2 grilse on fly, while Danish angler Per Balle, on his annual visit to Galway, has landed 1 grilse so far to the fly.

With cooler conditions and some rain forecast to freshen things up, conditions in Galway are set fair for the coming week.
