Fishing

VHC-NATURE-Trout-Fish-1-1

Trout, perch, redfin and Murray cod all call our waters home. For some the lure of the High Country is not in our sweeping alpine vistas, but in our iconic mountain rivers and lakes. Clear streams and tranquil inlets ensure a magical fishing experience.

Beginners can learn the art of casting, lure-fishing and stream craft from experienced guides. While serious anglers can stake out a quiet spot beside a High Country stream or lake and test their fishing skills with fly, lure or bait.

Before heading out remember to purchase a Recreational Fishing Licence (RFL). The streams and rivers close during winter from Queens birthday weekend at the start of June to the first weekend in September. During this time, anglers can still fish for trout and salmon in Victorian lakes and reservoirs, which remain open year round.
