Anglers & the Moy Valley
The Moy valley has been synonymous with angling and good fishing waters down through the ages.
The Moy valley has been synonymous with angling and good fishing waters down through the ages. Blessed with the River Moy and lough Conn & lough Arrow it is a fisherman’s heaven. Stretches of the River Moy in Ballina Town itself and further up river boast bountiful angling locations. 6000 salmon are caught by rod fishermen on the Moy each year. Allied to this is the fact that 30% of Irelands salmon catch is taken in the region! Given the prolificacy of the salmon catches, Ballina has earned the title of the ‘Salmon Capital of Ireland’.
The river is recognised as one of Europe’s leading salmon angling destinations.
One valuable and keenly appreciated service to local and visiting fishermen is the provision of a salmon smoking service by Clarke's Salmon Smokery.
How does the smoking service for anglers work?
Round off your fishing trip with the ultimate prize – Clarke's oak smoked wild Irish salmon. The true taste of Ballina.
The process usually takes 3 days but can take longer depending on the time of year. This service is only available between May and September. Outside of these times please enquire to see how we can accommodate you. A flat rate is charged for the salmon smoking service regardless of size of fish. Please enquire at Clarke’s gourmet seafood deli for pricing details.
