The Roe rises high above the Glenshane Pass, dropping rapidly to Dungiven. The spate river then makes its way through the beautiful Roe Valley Country Park before meandering across the broad Lough Foyle lowlands. Sea trout fishing starts the season on the Roe, with fine runs from late June to August. Salmon fishing is at its best from August onwards, proving most productive in spate conditions in the mid-section of the river.
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.
