River Moy Angling Report week ending 27/03/2022

There have been four salmon reported for the week. First off the mark was Mick Duffy on the 23rd with a fine 10.5 lbs. salmon, caught on a worm on East Mayo Anglers Association (EMAA) waters in an area between Ballylahan Bridge and their disabled access point. This was the first fish reported from EMAA waters this season!

With water levels dropping every day due to the fine weather the river was coming into good order for the fly. Joey Casey read the water correctly and fished the fly on EMAA waters downstream of their disabled access and was rewarded with a fine 11 lbs. springer, which is the first salmon on the fly for EMAA this year.

James McMordie fished on the Moy system and had a fine salmon estimated to be in double figures on the 26th in bright sunny conditions, while Peter McHugh got things rolling on Ballina Salmon Anglers waters with their first salmon of the season! Peter’s fish weighed 10 lbs. and was caught on spinner from an area above what is known locally as “the flag” in Ballina town. This is Peter’s third time in a row catching the first salmon of the season on Ballina Salmon Anglers waters!

Water levels were dropping slowly all week from 0.8m to 0.53m at Ballylahan Bridge monitoring station and water temperatures stayed in around 9˚C.
