Angling in Garvagh

Garvagh is well known for Brown Trout and Salmon fishing.

The River Agivey runs in an easterly direction from the Sperrin Mountains, passing through Garvagh and Aghadowey before entering the River Bann.

The Agivey River is one of the Bann’s main tributaries and is among the earliest in the season to offer good Salmon fishing.
As the river is only 10 miles from the sea, prime salmon fishing starts around the end of June, and continues to the season end.

Abundant wild Brown Trout remain a strong attraction of the Agivey
