The River Moy is one of Ireland's premier salmon rivers and is the ideal river for the game angler. Its entire length, of just over 1.5 miles is located within the Ballina Town boundaries in County Mayo.

Most of the main Moy channel, and some of its larger tributaries provide excellent spring Salmon and grilse fishing with both fly and bait. Sea trout are also abundant in the Moy. It is a deep river and up to forty meters wide in the middle and lower reaches. The Moy estuary has large stocks of sea trout which can be caught on fly and bait. The season runs from 1st February until 30th September.
