The Easter break, dropping water levels and much milder weather combined to see a considerable increase in angling effort on the Moy last week; this resulted in 74 salmon reported caught throughout the system. This brings the total caught to date to 127.

While most of the fish were taken upstream of Foxford, 9 year old Josh Devers from Ballina had his first salmon of 9 lbs on the Knockmore Salmon Anglers water. On the Cloongee Fishery Martin O’Brien, Tony Knox, Billy Kelly and Andrew Donnelly were among the lucky anglers taking a fish each. On East Mayo Anglers water Paul McGrath had a fish of 9.5lbs on fly, Danny Irwin 12 lbs on fly, Kevin Attride 7 lbs on fly, Mick Kane 13 lbs on spinner, Eoin Ceagarn 12 lbs on spinner and Martin Parker 8.5 lbs on spinner.


The next generation on the Moy


With water levels continuing to drop a reasonable weather forecast prospects are good for the week ahead.
