Water levels on the Moy on an all time low

The Moy at Foxford

Kevin O’Boyle reports from the River Moy…

River Moy Angling Report week ending 04/09/2022

As expected, water levels are at an all time low throughout the Moy system. This has a huge impact on angling and fish movement.

Water levels recorded at Ballylahan Bridge on the Monday morning were 0.195m (waterlevel.ie) and rose slightly at the weekend after some long awaited rain to 0.352m on Sunday night. Fishery managers are all saying this is not enough to flush out the river and say more rain is needed to “freshen” up the system. Sixteen grilse and one sea trout were reported, with 4 grilse released plus the sea trout.

The Moy Fishery recorded 1 salmon and 1 sea trout for the week, all released.

Byrne’s Fishery reported 3 grilse all caught on the prawn from their water.

The Foxford Fishery reported 5 grilse, all caught on bubble and fly.

Foxford Salmon Anglers reported 2 salmon from their Rinnaney stretch.

Foxford Rocks Fishery reported 2 salmon for the week.

East Mayo Anglers recorded 3 salmon for the week, and all released.
