River Colligan Guide
The River Colligan begins life in the Monavallagh Mountains in County Waterford, and flows southward for around 14 miles until it reaches the sea at Dungarvan Harbour.
The spring run has improved over this past few years but the river is better known for its Grilse and autumn fish runs. The best of the Grilse fishing is through June and July. The main autumn run is through September, with fish up to 16lb being fairly common. The Colligan is perfect for the flies but spinning is allowed in higher water.
The fishing is controlled by the Colligan & District Angling club, which has carried out a lot of bank-side work over the last few years to improve the fishing immensely.
