This is an exceptionally attractive and prolific salmon and sea trout fishery. There are abundant stocks of spring salmon, grilse and sea trout. Together with its tributary, the Tarsaghaunmore, the Owenduff drains an area of 52 square miles of wild moorland and mountain into Tullaghan Bay, a few miles north of the village of Ballycroy.
All the river is privately owned, except the estuary below the weir at Srahnamanragh Bridge where there is about a mile of free fishing along the left bank. Up river, there are 3 private fisheries and lodges: Lagduff Lodge, Shean Lodge and Rock House near Ballycroy.
