The unsettled weather and rising water levels affected angling on Ballisodare for most of the week. A total of 91 salmon were caught, 39 of which were released. Fish averaged 4.5 lbs. and were mostly taken on worm and fly.

Visiting anglers from England, George and Tom Birthwell, had three fish each during their visit, all between 3 lbs. and 5 lbs. Michael Griffin was successful on the Falls where he caught a nice sea-liced fish of 5.5 lbs. on the prawn. However, the best fish of the week, a fine seven pounder, was taken by Gerard Kelly also at the Falls.

With a lot of fish still coming in on the tides and falling water levels, the fishing at Ballisodare is far from over. For information and bookings please check www.ballisodarefishingclub.ie.
