The river Moy is by far the most productive Salmon River in Ireland. Annual official rod catches are usually between 7,000 and 10,000 fish. The town of Ballina on the Moy has been designated by the Irish Government as the Salmon Capital of Ireland. There is a good mixture of private and association beats throughout the river making access very easy for the visiting angler. The East Mayo Anglers Association water which starts just upstream from the town of Foxford, and stretches upstream to the town of Swinford on the Moy, offers about 6 miles of double bank fly fishing with 2 miles of this being fly only. East Mayo Anglers water is undoubtedly the most productive fly fishing stretch on the river with a 3 year average rod catch of over 1,100 salmon.
