River Faughan

City of Derry

The Faughan rises in the northern Sperrins, entering Lough Foyle, six miles north of Derry. A small double hander can be useful here but as the angler moves upstream a ten-foot rod is all that is required to cover the fifty odd named pools in the fifteen miles to Killycor Bridge between Claudy and Park villages. There are a number of flies named after the river such as the Faughan Purple and the Faughan Shrimp. The Faughan is good for salmon and is the best sea trout river on the Foyle System. The sea trout average from 1-2.5 lbs. The best of the sea trout fishing is usually from mid June to late July. River Faughan Angling Ltd. controls all the angling on the river. You also need a Loughs Agency rod license.
