The Fairy Water is a medium sized (5-20 meters width) river that rises in the hills above Drumquin. Some stretches are quite slow flowing – in fact, there is reasonable coarse fishing just above its confluence with the Strule, outside Omagh, where good sized roach can be caught. There is a good pike population at various points, mainly in the mid-sections around Priests Bridge. The river also holds a good population of brown trout and the occasional salmon.
Please note that whilst every attempt has been made to ensure the accuracy of angling club and associations boundaries it is essential you consult the club or association to confirm their upper and lower limits.
