With just over 300 salmon reported, anglers experienced more difficult conditions on the River Moy during the past week. The very unsettled weather and fluctuating water levels were the main reasons for the poorer catch return. Angling effort was also down compared to previous weeks. However, prospects for the remainder of the season are looking good as there are still some fresh fish running the system.

Angling on the Moy Fishery was a good bit slower this week. Amongst the few successful anglers was Trevor Hurley who caught and released a grilse on the Ridge Pool. On Mt. Falcon, the Jordan Family, a party of four from the UK, landed a total of 18 fish over 4 days, while Stuart Turner, also UK, had a fine fish at 12 lbs.+ on Coolcronan which he released. With just under 60 salmon reported, angling was also slower on the Foxford Salmon Anglers’ waters and further upriver. On Cloongee, Harry Clark was amongst the successful anglers with a grilse on spinner, while Kevin Crawley, Sligo, caught two fish on fly on East Mayo, best at 9 lbs. Also on East Mayo, Welsh fly angler, Garrett Jones, had two grilse averaging 4 lbs.
