Fishing

The area around Roe Valley Country Park near Limavady is one of outstanding natural beauty and the river is famous for salmon and trout fishing. In the park there is a footbridge just upstream of Givan’s Weir, which gives good access to the river on both sides.

There are forest walks provided throughout the park, but in the stretch which flows through a steep gorge, access is a little more difficult.

The fishing in the Park is split between DCAL and the Roe Angling Association. DCAL have the stretch from the Dogleap bridge (beside the Dogleap Centre and Ritter’s tea room), extending downstream until the to the second footbridge, which is just below O’Cahan’s weir.

The Bnb can issue an angling license for anyone wanting to fish on the Roe River and take advantage of the river ‘at the bottom’ of the garden!
