River Faughan Guide
The River Faughan rises in the Northern Sperrins and makes its way west, through rural countryside as it passes by Claudy and Ballyartan. At Drumahoe it swings in a North Westerly direction as it moves through a more urban setting for a couple of miles. Then it returns to a rural landscape as it makes its way down past Campsie and on into Lough Foyle about 3 miles North of Derry City.
Around the Claudy area, you can fish from Dungorkin Bridge (near the Foreglen) down towards the new treatment plant. Wading the pool at the treatment plant can be a little tricky. Claudy country park (around Ballynameen bridge) has some nice water for spinning, which is best approached from the right bank going downstream.
There are two good pools just upstream of Mc Candless bridge before you reach the confluence of the Glenrandal River. Downstream of Mc Candless bridge is particularly good for fly fishing in the streams and glides, from the first corner, right down to Crossan’s Flatts from the right bank. Crossan’s flatts is a good and is best approached from the left bank (down towards the wier). Crossan’s Flatts are best for spinning and bait, as is the the dam itself. Both the Flatts and the dam are good for night fishing for trout form the end of june.
