    Owenduff River



    Open for 2024, brown tag fishery

    • Salmon: 1 February to 30 September
    • Sea trout: 1 February to 12 October
    • Brown Trout 15 February to 12 October


    This is an exceptionally attractive and prolific salmon and sea trout fishery. There are good stocks of spring salmon, grilse and sea trout. Together with its tributary, the Tarsaghaunmore, the Owenduff drains an area of 135 km2 of wild moorland and mountain into Tullaghan Bay, a few kilometres north of the village of Ballycroy.

    All the river is privately owned, except the estuary below the weir at Srahnamanragh Bridge where there is about 1.5 km of free fishing along the left bank. However, anglers should seek permission from land owners for trespassing.  Up river, there are 3 private fisheries and lodges: Lagduff Lodge, Shean Lodge and Rock House near Ballycroy.

    A limited number of day tickets might be available from the Rock House Fishery.
