The Glenmornan River is between 5-10 metres wide, and currently does not require a fishing permit. The landowner’s permission must be obtained before crossing their land to access the river.
The main feature within the river is an impassable waterfall, located between Ballymagorry and Artigarvan at Lower Milltown. This has led to vast differences in the river below and above the waterfall, as Atlantic salmon and sea trout travel up the river as far as the waterfall, but above it there is a population of indigenous large brown trout. At present there is no active angling club or association for the Glenmornan.
