Fisheries Information Manager Markus Müller reports from Ballisodare Fishery:

The Ballisodare Fishery saw a rather good week considering the low water conditions with over 115 salmon caught, most of which were released.

Due to the extremely low water levels the majority of the fish were caught at the Falls. At present, the average size of fish is about 4lb, with a few fish of 6, 7 and 8lbs. still showing. Most salmon fell to the prawn, with some taken on fly and worm as well.

Amongst the successful anglers were David Crawley 5 lbs. (fly), Michael Wymes 5 lbs. (fly), Pat Forkan 6 lbs. (fly), Hillary Mitchell 7 lbs. (prawn), Keith Campbell 6 lbs. (fly), Heather Dean-Wright 4 lbs. & 5 lbs. (fly), Patrick O’Connor 4lb (prawn) and James McGuire 5 lbs. (fly).

A lot of fish are coming in on the tides at the moment, and angling is very good with fish being caught constantly.
