KILLALA SEA TROUT ANGLING
GUIDED SEA TROUT ANGLING ON THE RIVER MOY ESTUARY

The Moy Estuary

Looking across the Moy,from Bartragh Island ,to the sand hills near Enniscrone with anglers leaving my boat to have their lunch on the Island

The Estuary of the river Moy is an area of winding channels, sand banks and powerful currents and has two outlets to the sea: the main channel of the Moy and further west the channel at Ross near Killala.

In between these channels lie the sand dunes and beaches of Bartragh Island which has, fortunately, not suffered the same fate as many Irish sand dunes: golf course “development” and therefore remains a quiet and largely unspoilt and beautiful place.The highest dunes of the island offer fantastic views always greatly appreciated and photographed by everyone who sees them.During the course of the day we usually take a quick lunch break on the island.

At the eastern end of the island lies the Moy channel and then Enniscrone beach and sand hills. On the north side of Bartragh island lies Killala bay and between the island and mainland is a large tidal area of sand, mudflats, channels and islands.

During warm, sunny weather this is certainly a beautiful place to spend the day fishing. For more pictures of the Moy Estuary and Bartragh Island please see my Gallery.
