    This photo which was taken recently shows a lot of dirt in the river in Enniscorthy.

    While the river was generally quiet for the last 2 weeks there was a flurry of action on several lower beats last weekend as a few pods of fish appeared with reports of 3 fish lost by one angler on Saturday. A little further upstream an angler landed 3 the next day including this one. It seems they have now mostly run through.

    Upstream has been slow but Ger Mellet got this one on the Tullow water a couple of weeks ago.

    This week was a similar story to last with individual fish being met along the river with one in two being lost or just touched. Fish still seem to be running rather than taking up residence. In reality fishing has not been easy and you need to stick at it. Perseverance was rewarded with Mossy’s first of the season. (It was actually caught on Monday 6th.)

    The past week had a mixture of weather with bright sunshine and low clear water changing to a choclate flood at the weekend. Activity on the river slowed down but there were still a number of fresh fish running as can be seen from these photos. If you have any photos or reports please email info@slaneyrivertrust.ie.
