Height at Ballylahan bridge 1.2m
The first three weeks of the season saw the mainly dry weather continue and levels were good for fishing especially behind the boxes in Ballina. This location was fished on a daily basis by local anglers but no fish were reported. Any anglers I spoke to hadn’t even seen a fish going over the falls!
The weather finally broke on the 21st February and levels have been running between 1m -2.6m at Ballylahan bridge since. With plenty of water and spring like conditions a fish should be caught shortly somewhere in the system.
