Unsettled weather continued to affect angling last week but catches remained good with approximately 300 fish reported caught. Once again, three quarters of the fish were caught on fisheries just downstream of Foxford and on fisheries upstream of Foxford.

On the Moy Fishery some of the successful anglers included Steve Hazeldine (UK) with a 3.5 lbs grilse on fly at the Ridge Pool, Sergio Breton Diaz (Spain) with a 4+ lbs grilse on fly at the Weir Pool, Tristan Bayard (France) with a 5 lbs grilse on fly at the Cathedral Beat, Terry Hickman (UK) with a 5.75 lbs fish on fly at the Cathedral Beat, Josh Devers from Ballina (9 years old) with a 5.75 lbs fish on worm at the Cathedral Beat and Jean Christophe Chanteloube (France) with a 4 lbs grilse on fly at the Spring Wells Beat 2.

Upstream, the Foxford Fishery had another good week with Rod Singer and Gerry Cahill taking their first Moy salmon. Michael Raper, Darryl Kennedy and Dermot Hegarty all had fish. On the Cloongee Fishery, Pascal Tasset (France) had 6 fish for his week ranging from 2 lbs to 9 lbs all on bubble & fly. On East Mayo Anglers waters, Peter Thornton (UK) had three fish of 4.5 lbs, 7 lbs & 11.5 lbs on worm; Stephen Challinor (UK) caught two fish of  2.5 lbs & 3 lbs on fly and Christian Bardet (France) caught a fine 8 lbs fish on worm.

With a good show of fish now in the tidal waters, strong tides and much more settled weather we should see good fishing over the coming week with fish starting to lie in the mid river fisheries.
