With a total of 396 fish caught (110 released) the past two weeks were exceptionally productive at the Ballisodare Fishery.

On the river section, both fly and worm proved effective, while at the Falls all methods (worm, fly and prawn) caught fish. The Average size of fish was around the 5 pound mark, with quite a few bigger salmon on the scene.

Some good reports came in from Paul Hamilton who had two salmon on fly at the Falls, one of which was 8 lbs. Donagh McDonnell had two fish weighing 8 lbs. and 5 lbs. respectively, both on the worm.  Kevin Flynn had two on the fly, biggest at 8 lbs., while Dermot Glennon enjoyed a good day on the prawn catching two nice fish weighing 8.5 lbs. and 7 lbs. releasing one. There were many more reports from anglers catching two or more fish a day.

A group of four French anglers enjoyed four exceptional days of salmon fishing with approx. 30 fish landed and many more lost. Most of their fish were in the 4 to 6 lbs. range with a few 7 pounders also.
