Angling Tullaghabegley River

The Tullaghobegley River (also known as the Bawaan River) flows for some 9 miles, entering the ocean at Ballyness Bay. The source of the river is Lough Altan at the base of Mount Errigal in Glenveagh National Park.

The Tullaghobegley, though small, is a productive salmon and sea trout fishery recording around 300 salmon per season. The river fishes from June onwards. By far the most popular spot is the Baawan Pool, since fish can run in with the tide, regardless of water levels. It can be very busy though, with anglers standing shoulder to shoulder. However, during spates there are some nice pools above the Main Road Bridge, above the old Railway Bridge and at Meendarragh. Popular flies are small shrimp flies, black Pennell and a Donegal Blue.
