Welcome to the uFish Ireland website, where you can find all the details you need to go angling in the Foyle and Carlingford catchments.

Quiggery River

The Quiggery is a small to medium sized (5-20 metres width) river, which meanders through pasture and wetlands to meet the Drumragh upstream of Omagh. It's primary tributary, the Seskinore river, is slightly smaller but generally holds a slightly larger average size of trout.  Both rivers support good upwing fly populations with a substantial Mayfly hatch occurring around the middle of May. Wild brown trout between 2lbs and 3lbs (0.91-1.4kg) are taken every year. Spate can bring on the bigger fish in the evening. Much of the river is easily waded as the bed is predominantly gravel and access is relatively easy with many styles along it's length.

There is a bag limit of 1 fish per day from April to the end of May, with 2 fish per day from 1st June to 20th October.
