The 2012 season was by all accounts quite a good year for many anglers with the high water levels having a positive impact on the number of salmon entering our rivers. The counters were again ineffective at producing reliable figures and only 2794 had been counted through Sion Mills by the end of August 2012.
The annual competitions were poorly supported, probably due to low water conditions and clear blue skies however some fantastic trout were caught on the day. A lot of time and effort is put into organising these competitions and members are asked to publicise and support them. The trout fishing in our system is excellent with many reasonable size trout being caught throughout the season.
Members keep free the last thursday in February 2013 ,the 28th this year, for the clubs AGM. It will be held as usual in Omagh Lbrary Headquarters at 19:30pm sharp!

Hope to see you there.
Apologies for no reports but due to my own workload and continuation of the fight against the hydro I have had little or no time to update the website.
Firstly I know that trout fishing in the area is still very good. I have had a few good days on the river with some success with numbers of trout all over the 1lb mark I have also received several reports from visitors of excellent days trout fishing and even one lady from Co Down catching a salmon on the dry fly back in August on the Drumragh.
