Sion Mills Counter Site

The River Mourne is a big (20 meters plus width) spate river. It has a run of spring salmon (best April to mid-May), with most grilse and salmon arriving from June to July. Good fishing can still be had in September and October. Fishing for sea trout is best in June and July. This stretch of water does not necessarily require a spate and some anglers would suggest it fishes better in lower water!

The weir at Sion Mills on the River Mourne is a Partial Counting site as it only has 2 channels spanning 6m of a possible 162m.

River Mourne at Irish Grid reference H34772, 92826 in the townland of Drumnaboy in the County of Tyrone taken from “The Foyle Area (Control of Fishing) Regulations 2010.
