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!

Another day starting with outbreaks of rain in the morning clearing to scattered showers in the afternoon.  Top temperature 19c in a westerly wind.  The unsettled theme continues for next week, although the weather systems coming  in appear to be weak.  Maybe we will  get lucky when we least expect it!

Very few anglers fished yesterday but up to 8pm two small grilse were reported.  One caught on fly and the other on worm.  With falling air and water temperatures, chances of a salmon should improve if the pools are covered!

Scattered outbreaks of rain will clear this morning to give a mostly dry day.  Top temperature 19c in a westerly wind.  Another band of rain will cross the region Saturday night and may produce some heavy bursts.  A bit hit or miss by the sound of it!

Angling effort was low yesterday on the fishery, with most  anglers waiting for conditions to change.  Up to 8pm two grilse were reported caught on worm.  Anglers are still seeing fish show in the main holding pools but the supply of fresh running fish has reduced to a trickle.
