Fishing on the River Moy slowed down somewhat during the week and angling effort was lower than in previous weeks. Dropping water levels and the sunny weather also impacted on the fishing. Yet, the Moy produced one of the biggest fish caught in recent years! Mike Kane from Castlebar caught a magnificent spring fish weighing 19.07 lbs. spinning on the East Mayo Anglers water.
Other good catches from the East Mayo stretch included a 9 lbs. salmon for US flyangler, Jarvis Johnson, and 3 fine fly-caught springers of 8 lbs., 9 lbs. & 10 lbs. (2 released) for Manfred Wiblishauser from Germany.
Another fine springer weighing 13 lbs. was caught on spinner by Geoff Wiles on Gannon’s, while David Bradley had a nine pounder on the Foxford Fishery on worm.
