Angling Report week ending 28/05/2023  

Even though conditions in the Moy catchment were challenging last week, catch numbers increased significantly yet again and 122 salmon were reported caught. A considerable number of those salmon were spring fish, but the odd grilse was among them. Sunny days and no rain at all meant that Ballylahan Bridge water levels did not reach a desirable height all week long.

The Moy Fishery reported 13 salmon caught for the week of which 6 were released. Ten of the fish were caught in the Ridge Pool while the Cathedral Beat produced 3 salmon. Overall, 5 of these were double figure fish, with the best one weighing 14lbs.
