Water levels continue to drop and clear on the River Boyne and the angling effort is quite low at the moment. The falling water should continue to favour the fisheries on the lower part of the river and fishing and catches in this area have improved over the last week. Some salmon continue to run and both salmon and grilse have been caught over the last week up to the Navan area.

Fish from 5lbs to 12lbs were reported with fly, lure and shrimp all producing fish. A group of French anglers visited the lower Boyne over the weekend to do a spot of salmon fishing and had some success spinning and shrimp fishing. Although there were plenty of fish hooked unfortunately only one was landed.

There are fresh fish being caught but catches also include a lot of resident fish. More fresh fish will be arriving on the next big tides but as we all know the end of the season is approaching all too fast!
