On the Ridge Pool, John Howley had the first of the season; a 7.5 lbs. salmon caught spinning. Further upstream, Rob Shepard landed a twelve pounder on Armstrong’s, while John Marshall caught an 11 lbs. fish on Gannon’s.

On The Cloongee Fishery, Thierry Coulm had a fish of 8 lbs. on spinner. The East Mayo water produced an 8 pound salmon for German angler, Walter Posselt on worm, while his countryman, Andre Babik took a fine springer on fly weighing 11.5 lbs. Also on East Mayo,   fly angler, Ronnie McMorris, Northern Ireland, had a 9 lbs. fish.

Prospects for the Moy system are looking good for the coming days with water levels in the middle and upper reaches remaining ideal for fly fishing.
