The following angling report is for the period 10th – 16th April.

River Moy

Heavy rain fell during the early part of the week causing water levels to rise to approximately 2.2m at Ballylahan bridge on the night of Wednesday 12th. This left the river high and dirty on Thursday but by Friday the river was down to 1.1m in the morning and fishing looked more promising.

On East Mayo Anglers Association(EMAA) waters 2 salmon were landed on Friday 14th, Brendan O’Shea, Kiltimagh had an 8lbs. salmon on spinner and Liam Langan, Swinford had a 9lbs. salmon also on spinner.

Saturday 15th produced 2 more salmon, Gerry Seck, Crossmolina had a 7.5lbs. salmon on spinner and Pat O’Donovan, Kildare had a 15lbs. salmon also on spinner. Bringing a total of 4 salmon landed for the week on EMAA waters.

Angling pressure is relatively light as of yet on the Moy but with the good weather forecast and river levels dropping we should see more anglers out and into some action.
