Spring fishing on the Moy has begun to come into its own, with 28 salmon reported for the week. All hopes are that things will continue to improve into the month of May.

Ballina Salmon Anglers’ water reported four for the week, while upstream at Armstrong’s two were caught, including one for Shane Gainley who had a good fish of over 12lbs on the worm.

Gannon’s Fishery also yielded two, one each for Patrick Finnegan and Brian Larrigan, weighing 9lbs and 7lbs respectively. At the Foxford Fishery, John Chambers, N.Ireland, had a nice catch weighing 11.5lbs while at Rinanney Owen Brogan banked one of 7lbs. Three salmon were reported from the Cloongee Fishery, including one for Thiery Coulm, France, which was released.

However, once again the East Mayo Anglers’ water produced the best sport over the week, with 9 salmon recorded. Mixie Clarke, Bohola, had two fine fish of 10lbs and 11lbs while spinning, with visiting anglers from N.Ireland; Sam Morrow (7.5lbs), Pat McNulty(10lbs) and Michael Kane (8lbs) also having success on the spinner.
