Although still early in the season a few anglers have been braving the cool weather to try their luck on the River Boyne. Things were looking good with the recent fall in water levels and the clearing water also helped. There is a good flow on the river at the moment and the water is in very good condition which hopefully will encourage a few more salmon to move upstream.

Two anglers were rewarded recently for their efforts with two lovely spring salmon each estimated at around the 16lb mark. Well known angler Pat O’Toole had one of the fish which was taken on the park shrimp fly. The fish was released carefully back to the water after a quick photo. Hopefully this will be the first of many fish on the river.
