Affordable fishing for the family on the River Bann, Ireland

Apr 7, 2011 | Blog, River Reports, Where To Fish

The beautiful River Bann provides the perfect experience for every angler. It rises in the Mourne mountains and flows into and then out of Lough Neagh – the largest freshwater lake in the Europe. There are four major tributaries, all of which are ideal game fish habitat; the Clady, Agivey, Macosquin, and Ballymoney rivers, all but the latter joining from the west, having risen in the Sperrin Mountains. The Moyola river enters Lough Neagh only a mile or two from the entrance to the Lower Bann and, for angling purposes, can be considered as part of the Lower Bann catchment. More information

River Rhee: The main quarry in this river is brown trout, of which there is an abundance, although the river also yields a few sea trout and salmon in the autumn.

Although the river would be considered small, it has developed into a fine pool and riffle system and there is plenty of good sport to be had. Angling is restricted to fly fishing only. Enjoy a days fishing for £13.00 throughout the season. More information

River Clady: The river has a very good stock of wild brown trout where it meets the rich, flat agricultural land around Culnady. Here the river was sympathetically dredged a number of years ago and there are now plenty of deep pools and good riffles.

The river requires decent rainfall to fish well and weather permitting enjoys a good run of salmon from August through to the end of the season. Prices start from £13.00 per day. More Information
