The Erriff System is comprised of the Erriff River and the two small loughs of Tawnyard and Derrintin.
The River Erriff is one of the premier salmon fishing rivers in Ireland. A spate river, is it characterised by lively streams and deep fish holding pools. It has 8 miles of prime angling water, divided into 9 beats. Fishing is uncrowded with only two rods on most beats and a maximum of 3 on the remainder. Angling is rotated on a daily basis.
There is a run of spring fish into the Erriff River during the months of April and May. The grilse appear in June and runs continue throughout July, August and the early part of September. The sea trout run from early July onwards.
Tawnyard Lough is a 250 acre sea trout lake, situated in a scenic mountainous region. The grilse and sea trout run into this lough at the beginning of July but it is primarily known as a sea trout fishery. Fly-fishing and dapping are the only permitted methods of fishing on this lough. Boats and outboard motors are available to anglers.
