River Mourne

Foyle Catchment | River Mourne

Season: 1st April – 20th October

The River Mourne is a big (20 metres 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.
