Daithi Ryan reports from Galway on fishing for the first few days of July

The Galway fishery has had 20 salmon landed since the beginning of July. Although the salmon are slow to take, things are starting to look more promising with a greater number of fish entering the system over the last number of days.

The majority of the fish were again caught on the fly, while the prawn is still accounting for a small number of fish. The most successful fly has definitely been the Munro Killer.

On the 4th of July John Madden had a lovely grilse of 5.5lbs.

Juvenile Angling Opportunity

The Galway Fishery is now allowing two juvenile anglers who are both supervised by an adult to come and fish Jimmy’s Pool with the Prawn during the evening session. This will hopefully entice juvenile anglers to gain an interest in salmon fishing. See below for contact details.
