The season opens on March 1 closing on October 31. Throughout the season there are a lot of Brown Trout in the river. In May - June and August - October Dollaghan and Salmon are caught on the river. Fishing with maggot is not permitted on this beat , fishing is restricted to worms, bread, wet/dry flies and spinners. The use of sweet corn is permitted for coarse fishing but not game fishing. Dollaghan are land locked trout indigenous to Lough Neagh and the Ballinderry River. Best wet flies are: black pennell, Connemara black, greenwells glory and Peter Ross, best spinner No. 2 brass mep with red spots. Normal water depth is 3-5 ft with some holes considerably deeper.



Early in the season nymphs work best. In May black pennel and diawl Bach will catch trout. Best fly patterns for Dollaghan and Salmon are The Apache and the Claret Tail Bann Shrimp. If Dollaghan and Salmon are visible in the river but not taking shrimp flies resort to dark coloured size 12 wet flies ie bloody butcher Connemara black or black pennell. If the river is heavily coloured resort to spinner or better still worms ledgered out. In normal or low water trotting with a waggler will catch trout Dollaghan and salmon
