Foxford Rocks
Foxford, Co. Mayo
Free car parking
The Foxford Rocks beat is located above and below the town of Foxford, County Mayo, approx. 11kms (7 miles) from the tidewater, so it sees tens of thousands of fresh-run fish every year.

Foxford Rocks, County Mayo, has a very considerable gradient and a good flow throughout the beat. Unlike the rest of the lower water down to Ballina, which is all slow water, the Foxford Rocks has a very considerable gradient and a good flow throughout the beat. New pools have been expertly designed and constructed to accentuate this, and to allow the fly to fish with minimal assistance. It is an exciting stretch to fish, although not at all difficult, particularly in the lowest two pools.

The Bridge Pool above the bridge is teaming with rocks and boulders providing natural lies. It is a mixture of wading and bank fishing. Below the bridge are four classic fly pools, Flag, Eel Weir, Ford and Blackrocks - all easy to wade. The beats fish equally well with the floating line in normal conditions or intermediate or sinking lines when the water is higher.
