The river peaked at 2.03m at Ballylahan bridge and is now falling ( 1.6m at Ballylahan bridge). It is coloured and probably only suitable for worm fishing. It should clear as the day goes on. Unsettled forecast for the next few days may see more rain. As the old saying goes “When it rains it Pours” 🙂

Well we didn’t blow away so that’s a good start to the day :). A windy wet morning in Foxford. The river has dropped to 1.08 m at Ballylahan bridge but is likely to come up again later on today. Un settled forecast for the next few days but hopefully the weekend and into next week will see things settle down. Best method this morning will be worm.
Update 16.40 The River has been rising all day and is likely to continue to rise for another few hours. It is at 1.8m at Ballylahan bridge and will go to over the 2m mark before night. Depending on tonight’s weather it should be falling by morning.
Update 17.20. The River continued to rise for most of the day and got very coloured, it has peaked at 1.45m on the upper stretches and should be in good order for worming and spinning by morning.
Following yesterdays rain the river has started to rise. It is now at 1.13m at Ballylahan bridge and will continue to rise. Still clear enough to fish around Foxford but this will change later today.
A dark morning in Foxford, looks like we are going to have some heavy rain. Overall the weekend was quiet on the river. Reports from downstream of a few fresh run silver fish been taken hopefully a few more will arrive with fresh water. At the moment the river is at o.5m at Ballylahan bridge and is in good order for all methods.When we know whats happening with this rain we will update.
17.15 The rain has been pretty heavy all afternoon, if it continues we will see a rise in levels by morning.
Some rain overnight may see a small rise in levels later today but this will not be significant. Bubble and fly appears to have been the best method yesterday and this is likely to be the case for the early part of today at least. An un settled week ahead with the remnants of tropical storm Helene passing over, lets see what that throws at us 🙂
Shaping up to be a wet and windy weekend. The river is in good condition at the moment, it may creep up a few inches later today but will be ok. Spinning and Prawn downstream of Foxford, bubble and fly or Fly rod on East Mayo and Cloongee fisheries for today.
A wet morning in Foxford, heavy showers. Fishing was quiet yesterday with only a few salmon reported. A mixed forecast for the next while so we could see the river going up and down and generally unsettled conditions. For today spinning and prawn will be the best methods from Foxford downstream, bubble and fly will be worth trying on East Mayo and Cloongee fisheries.
A dry cool morning in Foxford. The river is now at 0.55m at Ballylahan bridge and is in good condition for all methods. Prawn should work on the fisheries downstream of Foxford. Anyone spinning is well advised to spin “Slow and low”getting their bait down to the fish.
