Judd Ruane reported that the weather conditions on the Moy Estuary were not suitable for sea trout fishing for much of last last week.
He did have some very good news though for salmon anglers on the Moy. While searching for mackerel in Killala bay Judd discovered a big head of salmon stretching a for distance he estimated to be roughly 4 miles outside the mouth of the Moy estuary. The fish were holding at a depth of 10 to 15ft under the surface, but he tracked the shoal to as deep as 70 ft on the fish finder. Wonderful sight.
Judd offers this advice, “Once these salmon get the smell of fresh water they will run so all you salmon anglers be ready for some sport!”
