When it comes time to drop in a line, our secluded creeks and rivers boast some of the best inland fishing in Australia. Summer is a bumper time, with long days meaning the fish are biting long into the evening.
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.
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. A late summer highlight is the Koondrook Barham Fishing Competition, held over the weekend from 28 February 2020.
