The local river, the Clodiagh river, flows between Upperchurch and Borrisoleigh and joins the river Suir downstream of Holycross. The trout in the river are free rising and in the ½ – 1½lb range. Trout of 2 – 3 lbs are taken occasionally by sedge fishermen late at night. The river has an abundance of fly life with prolific hatches of blue winged olives from June onwards.
The local club, Clodiagh Anglers Association, was formed in 1994 and is primarily a wild brown trout fishery, although there is quality pike fishing in some stretches.
The club has a wheelchair facility for wheel chair anglers to fish at Ballyouchter Bridge. The club also has a very active fly tying class where all the local patterns are expertly tied. A fishery well worth a visit. There are trout here that have never seen an artificial fly.
