When it comes time to drop in a line, our secluded creeks and rivers boast some of the best inland fishing in Australia.
Our waterways are a breeding ground for native fish species including one of the most prized trophies, Australia’s largest freshwater fish, the Murray Cod. Other species native to the region include the Redfin (English Perch), Silver Perch (Brim), Golden Perch (Yellowbelly), freshwater Murray Cray (season closed for 5 years) and the Yabby.
If fishing is not your game, and you just want to explore the elements of nature not accessible by road or foot, sit back and relax in your boat or tinny and let River Country take care of the rest!
The many Fishing Classic events held across the region attract thousands of people each year to enjoy the superb fishing on offer in this region.
