The river remains in good order with a nice level of water. There are very few anglers on the river but we are hearing positive reports from those who are out. Best methods are Bubble and Fly on the upper parts and Prawn/shrimp in the Foxford area. The outlook for the next few days is good with the weather due to remain settled.

The River rose steadily last evening and overnight but has leveled of and is starting to fall. The guage at Balylahan is reading 0.9m and is only slightly coloured. It should keep dropping for the rest of the day and should be in good order for the Bank Holiday weekend..
There has been little change in either weather and water conditions in the past 24 hours and the fishing remains difficult, There wsa some good reports from late yesterday evening with improved fishing reported from a few areas around Foxford. For anyone interested, the included video was shot duiring the past week and gives a good look at the very lower end of the Cloongee Fishery and all of FSA Bakers Fishery just south of Foxford
The River is in good order, and there are still very good numbers of Grillse entering the system. There are reports of fresh fish being caught very far up the river. There are some showers around today and these will help with holding a good level.
The Water remains in good condition and while it is falling away slowly, there is plenty of water to allow fish to move freely. There are good numbers of Grillse running the River daily and there is still the odd fresh springer also. The best reports yesterday were from the Fisheries upstream of Foxford with Bakers, Cloongee and East Mayo waters all producing reasonable numbers of fish, downstream of the town had mixed fishing with some anglers having good fishing, mainly on the spinner..
The River continues to be in very good order and should hold that way for the coming days. It looks like there was a good number of “Good Sized” Grillse enter the system overnight and earlier today. A few Anglers had two’s and three’s this morning. The Prawn accounted for most of the Fish downstream of Foxford while the Fly was the best method in the Fisheries upstream.
The river is in very good order for all methods today and there are some reports of fish being landed this morning. Yesterday seen the best day’s fishing so far this season with up to 40 fish landed within a few miles of Foxford, the best of this fishing was upstream of Foxford with the East Mayo Fishery reporting up to 20 Fish from their waters. The outlook for the coming days is good with enough water through out the system to all fish to move freely. Pic Above: Jonathon Fallon with two nice Fish from the Armstrong Fishery..
The river continues to be in great order for all methods but the weed is still causing problems on some fisheries. Reports from the River are of reasonable numbers of salmon being landed and lost. The outlook for the coming days is very dependant on the amount of rain due in the next few hours.
