The Foyle system covers an area of approximately 1,300 square miles stretching across much of three counties. The tributaries of the Foyle rise in the Blue Stack Mountains of Donegal, the Sperrin Mountains of Tyrone and Londonderry/Derry and the wildness of Inishowen - hills that hold many of the spawning waters of Foyle salmon.
These rivers provide the most affordable sport in these islands for a broad range of anglers. The salmon fishing on the Foyle system is famous but there is also excellent sport for the brown trout angler after a spot of dry fly fishing on some of the smaller rivers. Sea trout anglers can get cracking sport out of good runs of sea trout from mid-July onwards on most of the Foyle rivers.
The Foyle Area is readily accessible, with air routes from most parts of England, Scotland and Wales, as well as flights from several European countries and North America. This part of Ireland is well served by car ferries, too.
Please remember that access to rivers and lakes is often across private property. Such access is by kind permission of the owner and the continued co-operation of landowners relies on trust - both on the part of the angler and the landowner. Anglers should always respect the environment but also have due regard for the property of others - land, livestock, crops, fences, gates, farmyards, lanes...
