Glenone Riverside Trail

Approx 2km of off-road trail from Portglenone along the edge of the River Bann. The path provides access to 112 purpose built fishing stands. The facility is open all year round and may be used free of charge. This facility can be booked for competitions and events.

Located in parts of the beautiful wooded area of the Lower Bann, the Glenone Coarse Angling facility provides for over 100 competition standard swims accessible by a beautiful riverside walk of over a mile.

Good fishing is available all year round, although it can slow down at spawning time, with the main species being Hybrids, Roach, Skimmers and Bream. During competition average catches are between 8-15 kilos, although this can be far exceeded during the pleasure sessions, when 40kg bags are not uncommon. Catches can be variable depending on the water flow and season with the pole/feeder considered most suitable during the winter months and the slider during the summer.

This managed Catch & Release fishery is open to everyone – call 02870 or visit the Tourist Information Office at the Bridewell Centre, Magherafelt.

Annual permits cost £40 with 3 and 8 day permits available for £10 and £20 respectively. Free for under 18’s.Rod Licenses are available to by online from DAERA Inland Fisheries at
