The Camowen River rises south of Pomeroy and flows westward, being bridged by the B46 in Tiroony and meeting a tributary south of Carrickmore. It meets another tributary near Bracky, then flows southwestwards under the B158. It turns northwards into Omagh, passing behind Tyrone County Hospital and meeting the Drumragh River at the centre of the town. From this point on it is called the River Strule.
The Camowen River is a salmon fishery.
