The river is now coming back into good condition. It is at 1m at Ballylahan bridge and should soon be suitable for all methods. It is still a little coloured. Spinner and worm will work well this morning with the possibility of some fly fishing on the upper parts of East Mayo Anglers.

A nice morning in Foxford and the rain has finally stopped. For anyone going fishing its a good day for a slow start. The river is now at 1.5m at Ballylahan bridge but should start to fall later in the day. The best of the fishing (on the upper parts at least)will be towards evening. Some of the fisheries further down may still fish this morning and worm will be the best method. The forecast is for good weather in the next few days so with plenty of water already in the system hopefully the river will be in good condition for the next while.
A brighter morning in Foxford but still the possibility of some showers. The river is high but has started to drop. It is now at 1.5m at Ballylahan bridge. It is coloured and worm will be the best method today. If we do not get much rain today it looks good for the coming weekend.
A grey wet start to the day in Foxford, low cloud over the hills and it looks like this could be on for a while. The river is now at 0.89m at Ballylahan bridge and suitable for all methods. Spinning will still be the most productive method today.
A very windy morning with heavy showers in Foxford. The river is likely to creep up a little throughout the day. It is now at 0.94m at Ballylahan bridge and suitable for spin and worm. Mixed reports from yesterday, some anglers not having any success others very happy with their day but all reporting seeing good numbers of fish moving. At this stage there are fish throughout the entire system. Its not going to be the most pleasant day on the river bank.
Update 21.00 : We have had a reasonable amount of rain throughout the day, mostly heavy showers. I would expect the river to be rising by morning. It may not be a big rise but could have an effect on angling.
The river has continued to creep up and is now at 1.15m at Ballylahan bridge. It has started to drop further upstream so should turn at Ballyllahan soon. It will be suitable for spin and worm but may be a little high and coloured for the fly. The forecast is for more rain and wind tonight.
A damp drizzly start to the day in Foxford. There has been rain overnight but the heaviest of it seems to have missed us. The river could still come up later tonight but should be fine for today. It is now at 0.76m at Ballylahan bridge and suitable for all methods. Most of the fish caught yesterday were taken on Spinners, the largest we heard of was 13.5lbs. I will update tonight regarding possible conditions for tomorrow
22.15 : The river has been creeping up this evening. We have not had a lot of rain and it should peak at about 1.1m at Ballylahan. It should be in good order for spinning by morning.
A slightly brighter morning in Foxford with rain forecast from this evening and into tomorrow. The river droped to 0.88m last night but has crept up again to 0.99m at Ballylahan bridge (rain in the hills). It is still in good condition and is falling again. The rain in the next 24 hours will have an effect on levels and may make the weekend difficult. It depends on how much rain we actually get, we will up date when we know. Overall fishing is very good and most anglers are reporting seeing good numbers of fish and there have been some good catches. Spin and worm are the best methods and all fisheries are producing fish.
The River continued to fall yesterday and some good catches were reported. Now at 1m at Ballylahan bridge it is in good condition for spinning and worm and it will be possible to fish Fly in the upper parts. Good numbers of fish throughout the system and all fisheries are worth trying.
