Ballinderry River


The Ballinderry River flows eastwards through the county of Tyrone, Northern Ireland. As it rises in the foothills of the Sperrin mountains, it twists its way through the Kildress countryside to Cooks. With it's large populations of free rising Brown Trout up to two pounds in weight, the Ballinderry River is quite rightly thought of as one of the, if not the, best trout rivers in Northern Ireland.

Although the trout are in the main smallish fish, in the region of 4 - 6 ounces, they are hard fighting and plenty in number to keep the angler interested.

Whilst many trout will be caught on wet flies and nymphs, they are also taken in great numbers on dry flies throughout the length of the river. As usual the best time for dry fly fishing are from late April to early June, especially when Hawthorn flies are hatching.

The season starts on the first day of March and ends on the last day of October.

The Ballinderry also has runs of salmon and dollaghen from September onwards, but runs can be as early as July given the right amount of rain.

Most anglers use heavier and longer rods, a rod of 9ft or more rated 5 or above should suffice. For the Salmon, a single hander of 9.5ft, 7 weight, is enough to cover most lies along the middle and upper stretches of the Ballinderry. Though some anglers find that a small double hander allows you to cover the water more effectively in the lower Ballinderry.
