Week ending  Sunday 18th August 2019.

As with the previous week angling conditions continued to be difficult and angling effort was very low however 160 salmon were reported caught, with the bulk of the fish coming off four fisheries and the rest spread across the system.

Ballina salmon anglers had a reasonable week with a number of fish caught on the spinner and Bubble and fly.

Just upstream UK Angler Roger Morris did well on Mount Falcon landing six fish in two days.

Further upstream Foxford salmon anglers also had a reasonable week given the conditions.

On Cloongee fishery Declan Friary from Monaghan had 5.5lb fish on spinner and French angler Thiery Coulm had three fish which he released on Bubble and fly.

On East Mayo anglers water Ryan McMahon Kildare 5 lbs on fly, Garret Byrne Dublin 4 lbs on fly, John McGrath Clare 10 lbs on fly and Gareth Jepson UK. 3+6 lbs on spinner.
