Weather conditions, including high flood water in the river rendered the Fishery unfishable for parts of the week. However, despite this thirty-seven salmon were landed at Ballisodare. Prospects for the week were looking good on Monday, when 8 were landed, all on fly, including one of 12lbs for Jim Kinahan, a 6lbs fish for J.P. Chenoux, Tommy Colgan and Richard Ryan both had salmon of 9lbs while Noel Barbour landed a grilse.

 

Tuesday produced just four salmon as conditions deteriorated, although all four were caught on fly with two released. Wednesday was a much better day for anglers at Ballisodare, with 11 salmon caught, five of these on fly of which four were released. All salmon ranged from 5lbs to 12lbs and among those to have success were Alfie Mahon, Donagh McDonnell, John Connolly, Tony Scanlon, John Scanlon and Vaughan Harkness.

 

Very heavy rain on Wednesday left the river in heavy flood until Sunday, resulting in few anglers fishing. Tom Mulholland did manage to land one of 9.5lbs on Friday on the fly in very difficult conditions. By Sunday however, the river had dropped some, with the morning period yielding two fish for visiting Angler Peter Connolly (England) of 11lbs and 7lbs on worm.  A further fall in levels in the afternoon resulted in good sport for anglers, with a further 11 fish caught, seven on worm and four to the fly. John Molloy, Michael Mullaney and Anthony McCann and Fechin McMorrow (Sr. and Jr.) were among those to have success, with all fish ranging in size from 5lbs to 9lbs.
