The River Roe can change its mood almost in an instant. One moment it is calm and clear – the next it is a raging, dark, red-brown torrent.
The cause of this changing colour and character has its origins high up in the Sperrin Mountains where the river begins its journey.
The River Roe flows for 34 miles, from its origin in the Sperrin Mountains, down to the shores of Lough Foyle.
From saints to salmon, the powerful and pure waters of the Roe have sustained and inspired generations of people and created a valuable haven for wildlife.
The river provides opportunities for salmon and trout fishing. A disabled angler’s jetty is located near the visitors centre.
