Itineraries - Fishing

Tasmania is an internationally  sought-after trout fishing destination with more than 3,000 lakes and  rivers.  

Brown trout were first released here in 1864 and the  crystal clear waters, ideal for sight fishing, now offer a wealth of world  quality fly (and lure) fishing opportunities.  

Tasmania's fishing season  runs from September through to May each year.

Fishing licenses are required on  all inland waterways and the best way to navigate the island’s range of fishing  opportunities is with a certified guide.
