The Moy had a reported catch of 594 salmon for the week and fishing conditions continued to be good with many fresh fish caught throughout the entire system.

The Moy Fishery saw its best week of the season so far with over 50 salmon being caught. On the Ridge Pool, Steve Hazeldine, UK, had a cracking 12 lbs. fish on fly, while James Ryan, Sligo, caught two (one released) on the Weir Pool also on fly.

All fisheries upstream from Ballina enjoyed very good angling; so did the waters around Foxford. Further upriver on Cloonngee & the East Mayo water, conditions were also ideal for most of the week and many fish were caught by local and visiting anglers alike. Amongst the successful anglers were Bill O’Regan, Dublin, with two fish at 5 lbs. & 7 lbs. on worm and Stuart Longhurst, Germany, with a 5 lbs. grilse on fly.
