Mairt Devers with the first Moy salmon of the 2022 season

Philip Thornton reports from the River Moy…

Week 7 on the River Moy saw the first salmon of the 2022 season being caught on Friday evening last. The fresh 10 lbs. spring salmon was landed on Padden’s Pool on the Knockmore Fishery downstream of Foxford by experienced local angler Mairt Devers. Delighted with his catch Mairt stated it took him ‘almost forty years to land the first fish’.

The prospects of some more fish to be landed saw a small rise in angling effort over the weekend but to no avail. However, as spring finally made an entrance and with water levels dropping prospects for the coming days are looking a lot more promising.
