River and Lakes Information


The upper beat of the Shean Lodge Fishery is located within 50 meters of the river. Included in the package is Shean Lodge accommodation, for more details click here. Beat One provides fly only angling for eight rods on twenty-five named pools on both banks over approximately 4 kms of river.

The exceptions to this rule are the two pools above the Boundary Pool which can only be fished from the east bank. Nearly all the river can be fished from the banks with very little wading required; except where an angler wishes to cross the river for their own reasons. The west bank is favoured by most anglers, due to the ease of access by any reasonably fit person.  The east bank, on the other hand, is more challenging, but more than possible to fish by an active person. It has often proven to be well worth the effort.

Apart from one or two small sections, our stretch of the Owenduff River is mobile phone friendly throughout.

Our videos lower on this this page will give you an impression of this stretch of the Owenduff River.

Other Waters:

Tarsaughaun River

Tarsaughaun River is a tributary of the Owenduff River can be fished by two Rods by arrangement with our resident Guide.  The Shean Lodge Fishery is on the south bank only and extends for about 2 km. It has more than ten recognisable pools. It is often fished if the main river is dirty or too high. The Tarsaughaun (if the gods are with you!) is an unforgettable angling experience. What makes it different is the tumbling water of the mountain stream, where in many places it has cut its way through solid sandstone to get access to the main river. Salmon and sea trout and grilse can be taken. The river begins to fish from mid-May and, if there is a run on the river, can be very productive until the end of the season.

The Trout Lakes

Three Trout Lakes can be fished by arrangement with our resident Guide. They are stocked with brown trout some of which are being taken weighing up to 2 kilos. The most recent stocking was in 2018. For more details on The Trout Lakes please click here.
