Yet another excellent week at the Ballisodare Fishery, where 241 salmon were caught, a large proportion of those released safely. The fly, prawn and worm have all accounted for good numbers of fish throughout the week. Monday yielded 36 salmon, ranging in size from 3lbs to 13.5lbs, with Pat Forkan landing the best of the day, on fly.

Forty fish, up to 6lbs weight, were landed on Tuesday, with most taken on fly and prawn. Twenty-one of those were released. The prawn was the most successful method the following day, where a great catch of 50 salmon was recorded. All catches ranged between 3lbs and 8lbs, however the average size was approximately 5.5lbs.

Conditions on Thursday were very breezy, as a result few anglers fished. However, anglers did manage to land 22 salmon, despite the adverse conditions. A further 29 salmon were caught on Friday, between 3lbs and 8lbs while on Saturday 47 were landed, with 28 of those released. Angling effort was low again on Sunday, resulting in a catch total of just 17 for the day, with the fly and worm proving productive.
