Kilgad Fishery

89a Kilgad Road, Kells, Ballymena, County Antrim, BT42 3HY
Tel: Gary Cooper 028 2589 1812     E-mail:

So far the vast majority of anglers visiting the fishery have been using small dry flies, buzzers or nymphs on floating lines, although there are some who continue to use big lures, all in pursuit of rainbow trout up to 10lb with an average weight of 2.5-3lb. The heaviest fish so far was estimated at 10lb and returned to fight another day. The lake is weed free and there is easy access around the lake so casting a fly is relatively snag free. Restrictions: Fly fishing only, Permits available at the fishery.

Glenowen Fisheries

Creggan Country Park, Westway Creggan, Derry City, County Derry, BT48 9NU
Tel: 02871 371544     E-mail:

Having become one of the market leaders in the north in terms of rainbow trout fisheries, Glenowen Fisheries, with the aid of Creggan Country Park Enterprises have now developed a marvellous new fishery at the Lower Reservoir with a first class landscaping scheme, good access paths, disabled facilities etc. The fishery has produced some great results for anglers over the past ten years from banks and boats. While many have their favourite rainbow lure (the olive Sleech reigns supreme by the way) there is ample opportunity to try out wet flies , nymphs and dries and the evening rise in high summer can provide the cream of local. The system hosts a wealth of fly life with the bulk of the activity being provided by buzzers early in the year and by sedges in summer. It is a very productive system, with a ph of 7 +, and the feeding for trout is nothing short of amazing. Like all fisheries this one has its hot spots - the Big island at the bottom corner is a great fish holding area, particularly the area towards the outflow, while the dam area in general seems to hold loads of fish. Equally good is the opposite corner at the feeder stream where a mixture of features tend to keep the fish within easy casting reach while the relative shallowness also makes it a productive area in terms of food items! The easy casting along the entire northern bank makes it a dream for fly fishing, and the shallows along the edge will surely come into their own as summer approaches, since they will surely attract lots of early morning feeders.
