Upper Bann River Portadown

This stretch of the River Bann extends from Point of Whitecoat to Lough Neagh. It is one of the best known coarse fisheries in Europe, with the reaches in the Portadown town area established as big match venues. The Department has provided an attractivepath along the boulevard on the West bank from Point of Whitecoat to the boathouse. Craigavon Borough Council has provided a footpath from the boathouse through Shillington's Stretch, which they have developed mainly for pleasure anglers. Other stretches are frequently used for competitions. The Council has also developed an amenity area and constructed a number of fishing stands, including some for use by disabled anglers in the Council Stretch of Hoy's Meadow.
