The Lower Bann drains the 250 square miles of Lough Neagh and all the salmon entering the huge system pass through it on their way upstream. The river is slow flowing but there are weirs and lock gates which create holding pools for fish as at Carnroe which provides salmon catches to rival anything in the country. Two main tributaries of the Lower Bann, the Agivey and the Clady provide good sport when water levels are right with the Agivey being a highly productive small salmon river. The Bush has alwaysbeen a noted salmon river and fishes best to the worked fly in the slower pools. Occasional sea trout are also taken on lower parts. Given normal rainfall there is always the chance of a salmon in the upper river.
