The River crept up a little yesterday reaching 0.45m at Ballylahan bridge. Not a big rise but enough to freshen things up a little. All reports from downriver are that a lot of fish have arrived in the past few days. These fish are making their way upstream and fishing in the Foxford area will improve in the coming days. All methods should work.

A dull morning with a light breeze in Foxford. A few nice fish taken yesterday and good reports of fish moving. Anglers have also reported seeing fish moving through the pools in Ballina. The forecast for the next few days is unsettled with rain promised so we may see a little fresh water.

A heavy thunder shower at the moment in Foxford. The forecast is for these showers to continue throughout the day. with a bit of luck some of them will fall in the hills and send a little bit of fresh water down through the system. Nothing spectacular happened on the river over the weekend, a few fish taken here and there. Prawn and Bubble and fly been the best methods. Lough Conn is still fishing very well for trout. Foxford Angling Club held a competition there yesterday and all who fished reported great lively sport with trout taking Mayfly patterns.

A nice fresh morning in Foxford. Good breeze for bubble and fly, should be a few fish take o this method today. The weather for the next few days is mixed, perhaps we will get a drop of fresh water which would help.

Another nice fishing morning. The forecast is mixed, some showers and a little bit of wind. Conditions should be good for bubble and fly over the weekend. In general water levels are low but fresh fish are arriving daily with sea liced salmon been taken. Bubble and fly, spin and Prawn will be the best methods.

A nice fishing morning in Foxford. The river although getting low is producing fish and all anglers are reporting seeing fish throughout the system. The Rinnanney fishery has done reasonably well in the past few days and fish have also been reported from The Foxford fishery and Gannons. For today, Bubble ad Fly in Cloongee or East Mayo anglers waters and Prawn or Spinning further downstream will be the best methods

The river is at 0.28m at Ballylahan bridge. Low water on the upper river but despite this sea liced fish are bee taken there.  Foxford Salmon Anglers reported 18 salmon for the week which would indicate that fish are holding up in the deeper parts of the river. Rinnanney, Armstrongs and Gannons are all worth a try. Some rain forecast for later today, it may not be enough to raise water levels but the cloud cover will be helpful. Tides are still big and fresh fish are arriving daily now.

Although conditions have been difficult on the river he tides have been big for the past few days, most anglers out over the weekend reported seeing fresh fish and fresh sea liced fish were taken. Bubble and fly appears to be the most productive method. Showers forecast for later today, this will help as cloud builds.
