The River Faughan Anglers Ltd manages the fishing of Salmon and Trout on the tidal and inland freshwaters of the River Faughan and its tributaries.
Situated within easy reach of the historic City of Derry/Londonderry anglers may pursue their fishing amid some of the most beautiful scenery in Ireland. The Faughan rises on the Eastern slopes of Sawel mountain, the highest peak of the Sperrins, flowing some 20 odd miles from its source, Poll an Iolair (The Eagle's Pool) to Lough Foyle.
The Faughan is a medium sized spate river, in its upper reaches it is fast flowing, with streams, gravel fords and pools the predominant features. As it descends the river slows as it passes through agricultural land, until it reaches Campsie, where there is a large dam, which is used to extract water for the nearby water treatment works. This dam known locally as "The Gates" slows the flow right down, and provides sufficient depth to hold large numbers of fish throughout the year. Below the impoundment the river is tidal and relatively shallow until Campsie Bridge above which there is deeper holding water, and from the bridge downstream the river features a series of deep bends and flats all of which are capable of holding salmon and trout.
Anglers should be in possession of a valid Foyle Area licence and a Faughan ticket / permit whilst fishing.
