As expected the river was creeping up yesterday and peaked at just under 0.7m at Ballylahan bridge. This has put a noticeable fresh drop of water through the system and it should move a few fish. The forecast is for some heavy rain in the west this morning. So far its a dull showery morning in Foxford. Spinning and worm will be the best methods today.

The river has crept up a few inches overnight (now at 0.42m at Ballylahan bridge) and will most likely rise by a few more inches as the day goes on. This will improve fishing in the next few days. Anyone spinning today will be in with a good chance of success.
A few showers promised this morning but these should clear as the day goes on. very few anglers on the river yesterday. The best report was of one angler hooking 3 salmon on prawn downstream of Foxford. Conditions are good for bubble and fly and prawn.
The river is at 0.32m at Ballylahan bridge and is in good condition for all methods. Fish were taken on prawn and bubble and fly yesterday. Most of last nights rain appears to have missed us so im not expecting any significant rise in levels. Normally at this time of year spinning works well and as soon as we get the next rise this will again be the case. Time to shine up some of those old spoons, put new hooks on and be ready 🙂
A cool morning in Foxford. The river is at 0.36m at Ballylahan bridge and is suitable for all methods. Fly, Bubble and fly and prawn will be the best methods. Still very little angling activity but as schools re open we would expect to see more anglers on the river bank.
The river is now down at 0.73m at ballylahan bridge and is in good order for all methods. Reports of a few fish to the fly yesterday on East mayo. Fish were taken on spin and worm on other fisheries around Foxford. The upper parts of the river should be worth a try now as fish will have moved up with the recent floods.
