The Drowes has a wide variety of water suitable for all fishing methods, including several miles of good fly water and deeper slower moving pools suitable for spinning and bait fishing.

The fishery is based at Lareen Estate, where the river flows from Lough Melvin. There is a fishery office and tackle shop on the estate from where fishing permits and licences are available and boats and engines may be hired.

Also on the Estate are 11 holiday cottages, close to the water’s edge, available for rent throughout the year. The cottages may be rented on their own or as part of a fishing package which includes fishing and boat hire.

You‘ll Savour Forever

The Drowes Fishery is one of Ireland’s premier spring salmon and grilse fisheries.

The Drowes is among the earliest opening salmon fisheries in the country and regularly claims the honor of producing Ireland’s first salmon of the season on opening day, January 1st.

The river is some 5 miles in length, with over 70 named pools, flowing from Lough Melvin at Lareen Bay and entering the sea at Tullaghan, just outside Bundoran.
