Jacks Pool

springRecently modified and improved by construction of bank protection and groynes, this stretch consists of a shallow, gravelly run flowing into an even glide with good holding and taking water. It is a great stretch for the floating-line fly and is best fished by wading along the shallow gravel bar below Black Rock. This is a prolific pool, particular at summer water level and it extends for over 100 yards.

The Poplins

springFishable from either bank, the poplins consist of a deep, sweeping run over a rocky bed along the west bank, sloping up to shallows along the east bank. It is a classic salmon pool with an even draw over the lies. It is 80 yrds. long and fishes well to the fly in lower water or the spinner in higher water.

The Jetty

springAccess to the Foxford Fishery is from the car park located on the east bank half-mile below the Foxford Bridge. From here anglers may meet their Ghillies and proceed to the various pools along the well kept bank-side paths or by boat from the fishery jetty adjacent to the car park.

Frenchmans

springThis pool is directly downstream from the fishery jetty and runs for 60 yards over rock ledge and into deep water at the tail. It is fished from a narrow gravel bank along the west bank with the taking lies being across the head of the pool and along the edge of the flow adjacent to the east bank. The Frenchman's fishes best in low water.

Gurteen

springThis is the longest pool on the fishery at over 400 yards and separates clearly into two parts; the head of the pool is fished from either bank from wading from the east or casting from the bank on the west, the body and tail of the pool are fished from the west bank from a bed of gravel which protrudes into the centre of the river. The fish lie along the rocky tree lined bank and in the large bouldery lies towards the tail. This is an exceptionally productive stretch and is one of the most famous salmon pools in Ireland. Gurteen can be fished in any height of water.

The Alders

springA straight pool of around 50 yards in length, the Alders is fished from the west bank as wading is difficult. The lies are down the centre of the river and can be reached comfortably from the bank. At summer water levels the fly fishes well whilst in higher water the spinner is effective. This pool fishes the bubble and fly extremely well in low water.

The Nibb

springThis is the most productive pool on the Foxford Fishery. It is over 300 yards long and is fished from either bank or from a boat. Most fish are caught from the west bank casting to the extensive rocky lies in the middle of the river and along the same bank. At the tail of the pool fish tend to follow the fly from their lies in the centre of the river and take approaching the dangle. This is an exciting pool to fish as salmon often show over the lies in the centre of the river. The Nibb fishes the bubble and fly well in low water, but can be fished confidently at any height of water.

Single Bank

springThis stretch consists of 1.5 km of water divided into three main pools: Moran's Rocks, The Strand and the Point. The water is mostly deep in character and fishes best early in the season and in higher water levels. The best methods are bait fishing and spinning with the bubble and fly becoming productive at summer levels.
