The Sheep Dip Pool

content image

This is actually the location in which farmers would dip their sheep, it was built into the bank close to the river, it has since been filled in.

This is very deep water, with slow flowing water running into it. It is very good for spinning and bubble and fly. Over the years a great number of fish have been caught in this area. There are a good number of ways to access the Sheep Dip Pool:

• Park in the lane-way leading to Camus Church, which is just off the Liskey Road B165. Please do not obstruct the lane-way.

• Park in the lower car-park at Paddy's Streams and walk downstream along the riverbank. Please use the self-closing gates provided.

• Turn off the main Omagh road at the traffic lights in the village; turn right at the bottom of the road, before the factory gates. Walk from here along the pathway to the Riverside Park, walk upstream along the riverbank. Please use the self-closing gates provided.

The Camus Bridge is an old disused railway bridge - great care should be taken when crossing. The name Camus comes from the Gaelic word meaning bend in the river!
