Fairy Water

Foyle Catchment | Fairy Water

Season: 1st April – 20th October (coarse all year round)

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.
