Roy Craige, Shean Lodge Fishery reports on fishing conditions on the Owenduff river:

With little water during week ending 13th July the river was particularly low and fishing was slow. A great number of both salmon and seatrout were seen but very reluctant to take. It rained at night on 17th and with nice water next day fishing improved and 2 salmon, 2 grilse and 20 seatrout were landed with many returned. The run of seatrout is exceptional this year with many up to 3lbs,and one of 7.5lbs landed earlier in the season. Prospects, subject to normal rainfall, are excellent with a very good stock of fish throughout the system. Year to date 110 salmon ,and 80 seatrout have been landed with 62 seatrout in the last 3 weeks.

                Rods are still available on Beat 2 in August and September by applying to our website or
