Fishing in the Northwest is a large-scale enterprise, bringing in more than £20 million in local industry? This is also reflected in the number of people taking up fishing as a pastime, with large areas of growth seen in recent years.

There are fisheries springing up all over the country, with a large majority created specifically for those fishing for pleasure, all bolstered by the beautiful scenery that surrounds them.

Locally, there is the Creggan Country Park, a massive reservoir redeveloped for use by anglers as well as other watersports enthusiasts. With a firstclass fishing experience, Creggan Country Park prides itself on its landscaped lower reservoir and its rainbow trout numbers, with access available to those with disabilities. Boat hire is also available, giving visitors the choice to fish from the banks or hired boats.

Maydown Trout Fishery is based on the outskirts of the city, at Carrakeel Drive, that offers a more relaxed atmosphere. Not far from a main point of entry into the city centre, the fishery is a contrast in and of itself, with anglers relaxing mere metres from the busy main road at Maydown. Fishing is permitted with worm and fly, though some may find it difficult to access given its entries.

Others include The Oaks Fishery, located only a few minutes from the city centre on the Judges Road, which uses a natural lake set in beautiful countryside as its setting. Cashel Trout Fishery, not far from the city centre itself, is set at the base if the Sperrin foothills, where fishermen and women can take to the banks of the River Roe. Widely recognised as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, in Dungiven.
