Fishing on River Moy still slow but some nice sea trout reported from the estuary


Osgur Grieve reports from the River Moy…

Angling Report week ending 18/06/23

The River Moy experienced low water conditions for most of the week. Despite this some fisheries fared well despite the warm conditions. A small rise in water levels on Sunday 18th from 0.2m to 0.35m at Ballylahan Bridge brought some relief for anglers.

The number of fisheries along the Moy that reported catches last week increased which may be attributed to the beginning of the grilse run and increased angling effort.

The Moy Fishery remained closed for the week due to elevated water temperatures.

Coolcronan Fishery reported 1 salmon caught.

Byrne’s Fishery reported 7 salmon caught using worm or prawn.
