Moy Report 30th March @ 4.30pm

Height at Ballylahan bridge 0.90m

I received confirmation today that the first salmon on the East Mayo Anglers Association has been landed. The salmon was actually caught on the 25th March in the lower end of the fishery.  This is encouraging news as a few years have slipped past since a March fish was landed.

David O'Callaghan (Dublin) with the first salmon of the season caught on the EMAA stretch. The salmon weighed 11.5lb and fell for a flying C. Well done David!

Elsewhere on the Moy system a small number of salmon have been reported since opening day but things should start to pick as we enter April and the main run of spring salmon gets underway.

As a word of caution, anglers especially those that will be wading should exercise extreme care as the severe winter floods have made many changes to the pools.  Some pools have been scoured out deeper while others have been filled in.  A wading staff would be a useful addition to the anglers tackle until they familiarize themselves to the new conditions!
