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, which is most active in late summer and early autumn, but can be caught throughout the year.
Other species native to the region include the Redfin (English Perch), Silver Perch (Brim), Golden Perch (Yellowbelly) and Yabby.
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. This autumn, be sure to check out the Wakool Fishing Classic on 26–28 March 2021.
