Drumragh River

Foyle Catchment | Drumragh River

Season: 1st April – 20th October

There is a good head of wild brown trout in the medium sized (5-20 meters width) River Drumragh and its tributaries – the Owenreagh and the Quiggery Water. The Drumragh has excellent brown trout fishing over its entire length with great fly hatches in May and June. There is good salmon angling on club stretches and fantastic opportunities for the roaming trout angler, utilising upstream dry fly techniques. These rivers meander through pleasant grassy hills and flat ‘holms’ (or flood plains) for most of their length. The slower stretches in Omagh also offer some excellent roach fishing for the coarse angler with specimens in the 2lb range reported.
