There is good water in the river this morning and levels are slowly falling.  Spinning and worm will probably offer the best chance of a fish this morning, with fly worth a go later especially in the upper stretches.

Mostly dry today with sunny spells developing. Top temperature 18c in a northwest wind.  It will feel a lot fresher today with humidity levels well down compared to recent days.  Very little rain forecast until the early days of next week!

Unsettled river conditions continued yesterday and by afternoon the river was on the rise again. The unsettled river probably didn’t help the few anglers that were out, and up to 8pm three fish were reported.  The best weighed 7lb and was caught on fly.  Several fish were also lost, with a few having a less than enthusiastic go at the fly!

Out breaks of rain and drizzle are forecast to last throughout the day.  Top temperature 17c in a southwest wind.  Fishing prospects are good for today before extra water is likely to come into the system later today.

The river rose yesterday until early afternoon and carried some colour.  Compared to recent days catches were up, with seven fish reported up to evening time.  The rise should have shuffled a few fish around that were lying down the fishery and hopefully will have brought some new fish up.

There was a fair amount of rain yesterday evening and the river is on the rise this morning.  It will probably creep up for most of the day and although it won’t be a big flood it should be enough to get fish moving and improve sport.  With more rain forecast tonight it looks like a proper flood is on the way.

It was another quiet day on the fishery yesterday with few anglers out and sport was slow.  Up to 8pm one fish was reported weighing 9lb, with fly the successful method.  Plenty of fish were seen showing in the lower stretches of the fishery!

Good water at the lower end of the fishery last season.

There will be a lot of cloud around today with scattered showers.  Top temperature 18c in a westerly wind.  Possibility of some widespread rain coming in during the evening.  Yesterdays showers have added a couple of inches of freshwater to the river and this could stir up a few of the residents in the pools?

There seems to be a general theme running through fishing at the moment on the Moy.  Anglers are seeing plenty of fish showing in the various fisheries but they are proving  very difficult to tempt no matter what method is used.  There are always exceptions of course, and I heard of one beginner catching three on bubble and fly in Foxford recently!

Another weather system passed through the catchment yesterday and has had a minimal impact on water levels.  Catches were also minimal yesterday with just a 1.5lb sea trout reported up to 8pm, by a small number of anglers.

Widespread showers forecast for today with some heavy ones.  Top temperature 17c in a westerly wind.  It looks like water temperatures will get a chance to fall back this week as air temperatures won’t rise much above 18c during the week!
