A hazy start to the day in Foxford. The forecast is for some cloud and showers in the early part of the day, clearing up later and turning to rain later in the night. Not sure it will be enough to rise water levels but it may freshen things up a bit. For today Prawn/shrimp and bubble and fly will continue to be the most productive methods.
As expected things were quiet over the weekend. The bright sunny weather and low water conditions are not a good combination for Salmon fishing. The week ahead is a little more promising and although no major rainfall is promised there will be more cloud,wind and generally duller conditions which will help. A lot of fish throughout the system and fresh fish are still running. Lets see what the week brings.
The start of what looks like a bright and sunny day. With the already low water Salmon fishing on the Moy will be difficult in these conditions. Alternatives would be Lough Conn which is fishing well for trout or try a beach. Late this evening will be the best time for salmon.For anyone who is trying during the early part of the day Prawn and shrimp will be the best methods and some of the deeper stretches downstream of Foxford will be the best places to try.
Not a bad morning for fishing, nice bit of cloud cove so far. Lots of fish splashing about around Foxford. They are proving difficult to catch but some anglers are having success. Prawn and bubble and fly are the best methods and this will be the situation until we get some fresh water. The forecast is promising for early to mid next week, lets wait and see what happens.
A damp morning in Foxford, we had a few showers overnight. It looks like it will clear up soon and the forecast is for a mostly dry day. We may get a little bit of wind from the North west later today which will improve conditions for the evening. Overall the forecast for the weekend is not great for fishing, dry, east wind and sunny… It could be a good weekend to catch up on a few jobs around the house and gain a few Brownie points. Next week looks more promising.
A little bit of mist and light breeze around Foxford this morning, not enough rain to effect water levels. The best method for the day will be Prawn/Shrimp fishing. Water levels are low but fresh fish can and are still moving. The forecast for the afternoon is for showers but no significant rain to make any difference. At this stage it looks like it will be early next week before theres a change.
Low water levels and bright weather have made angling difficult in the past few days. A little rain forecast for this afternoon which will help. Lots of fish in the system and for anyone willing to persist there is a chance. Next week looks promising, forecast is for some heavy rain Monday night into Tuesday but we will have to wait and see what happens. For now its keep trying with Low water tactics and if possible fish when weather conditions are best.
A nice morning in Foxford, some cloud cover and a little breeze. Not a bad morning for a fish. Water levels are low but despite this fresh fish are moving. No major rain forecast so for now its Low water tactics, small flies, fine leaders, Light spinners, early mornings and late evenings.
A cloudier morning in Foxford. This cloud with some showers is forecast to be with us for the day with just some sunny spells promised. Hopefully it will be a better fishing day, yesterday was very bright. All anglers are reporting seeing lots of fish throughout the river and this is very evident around Foxford. Anyone fishing today with bubble and fly, prawn or small spinners should have a good chance of success.
Another bright morning in Foxford. The forecast is giving it to change tomorrow with cloud and drizzle promised. Water levels on the upper parts of the river are very low now, through Foxford and on down stream there’s still a reasonable level. Prawn will be the best method this morning, if it clouds a little later bubble and fly will work. As has been the case for most of the past week evening time will be the best part of the day to be on the river.
