A small trout river with occasional salmon flowing into Lough Erne. The trout average about half a pound but as the river is a nursery ground for the Lough Erne trout the fishing changes from August when the bigger fish from the lough run upstream to spawn. The river, all but 1.5 miles under the DCAL permit, is controlled by the Ballinmallard Angling Club who issue permits from the Spar store in Ballinmallard, call 028 6638 8136.
