Water conditions were coming right for some time on the River Boyne and the lower Kells Blackwater. Anglers were hoping that there might some early fish around. As it turns out they were spot on. Over the last couple of weeks some good sized spring fish were reported from the Boyne and Blackwater. Unfortunately, no photos were sourced but at least we have some info on the fishing.

On the lower Blackwater 2 salmon were reported. One weighed 12lb and was caught on the shrimp, The second of the fish was 10lb was taken on the fly.
