When to fish the Bann

Historically the River Bann supports significant runs of fish in the period February through October.

However, the main spring stock has been affected by drainage and commercial fishing resulting in a remnant spring run from April onwards.

The main and most significant run occurs in the months July and August and is comprised of summer salmon and grilse. Once into the Bann system these fish distribute themselves throughout the system, lough and the various tributaries.
