Owenglin

The Owenglin is a narrow easily fished spate river that flows through the town of Clifden. It can be fished for about 8 miles upstream of the town, with excellent grilse fishing in spate conditions. The fishery is owned by the Clifden Angling Association, and visitor permits are available from Stanley’s Fishing Tackle shop in Clifden. The Clifden/Galway road crosses the river a short distance upstream of the town, and access to the river is easy in the lower reaches.

Salmon

There is a very good run of grilse in June and July in high water, and this gives very good fishing for up to 8 miles of river. It fishes best on a dropping flood, and fly, spinner and worm are all permitted.

Sea Trout

The fishery gets a run of sea trout from July, with fish averaging 0.5-1lbs. Current legislation requires that all sea trout are released alive.
