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

River Strule

Season: 1st April - 20th October

The Strule forms at the confluence of the Drumragh and Camowen rivers in the centre of Omagh. It is a big river (20 metres plus width) and runs northwards for twelve miles, bounded by rich pasture and occasional cereal crops. Along its length it is joined by the Fairy Water and the Owenkillew before meeting the Derg below Newtownstewart to form the River Mourne.

In it's upper reaches the Strule is relatively easy to wade but the lower stretches are much more difficult as the river bed is very rocky with some deep holes. Chest waders and a wading stick are the minimum requirement for wading this river.
