Better conditions prevailed this week on the Galway Fishery, with 2 sluice gates open. Runs of spring fish have been slow, with the main run not seen yet. There were 5 fish landed for the week, including 2 fish on the fly. David Laughlin from Northern Ireland took a nice 11lbs springer on fly, while Athenry angler Declan Tuffy took a fine 12.5lbs fish, also on fly. Fergal Cormican from Dublin had a lovely 12.5lbs fish on spinner, while Laois man John Hetherington took a 9.5lbs fish on shrimp, and finally Clare angler Mick Browne landed a 10.5lbs fish on spinner.

With 2 gates open and fine weather forecast for the week, conditions look good, and angling prospects depend very much on a few more spring fish coming in on the next few tides.
