IFI to close Moy and Galway salmon fisheries

Public Notice
Moy fishery

Inland Fisheries Ireland is suspending salmon angling at the Moy Fishery in Ballina, Co. Mayo and the Galway Fishery, in Galway city, due to prolonged warm dry weather conditions.

Anglers with bookings on the Moy Fishery in the coming days can contact 096 21332 or moyfishery@fisheriesireland.ie for more information. Those with bookings on the Galway Fishery  can contact 091 562388 or email matt.varley@fisheriesireland.ie

Recent dry and hot weather has caused water temperatures to exceed the 20C threshold in both locations over a number of days.

Other State-owned fisheries are being monitored currently. These will be closed if and when they meet an appropriate threshold where cessation of angling must be enforced.

Details of the reopening of both fisheries will be published via IFI’s website fisheriesireland.ie and on our Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook and Instagram social media channels.
