Hold onto your rod tightly as your guide takes you into the Nepean River to hunt for bass! Along the way, you might even catch mullet, carp or herring. Your knowledgeable fishing guide has many years experience fishing these waters and will be sure to take you to a spot where the fish are biting!
On the day of your freshwater fishing adventure, be welcomed aboard our fishing vessel by local guide, Steve. Our boat is 4.6m and is a custom built bass boat with a 60hp outboard to get you up the river quickly and smoothly. We also have an electric motor so we can sneak up on the fish in the best spots on the river!
After a quick safety rundown and a brief trip into the magnificent Nepean gorge, it won’t be long before you have your fishing line dangling in the water in anticipation of your first catch!
In the Nepean, you might catch either bass, mullet, carp or herring and all in the most amazing setting - steep gorge rock faces, with an abundance of wildlife including eagles soaring overhead, wallabies leaping around the rocks, water dragons lying in wait plus so much more.
We mainly target the hard fighting native bass on either surface or diving lures, depending on conditions. We also target mullet, herring or carp as we are casting the lures for the bass.
During early morning or late afternoon, you’ll experience the exciting action of surface lure strikes, as the local bass population smashes surface walking lures and with the light Shimano fishing equipment, you’re up for a sure fight!
We use top quality, Shimano rods and reels, with the best of east coast and tailor-made lures. You don’t even need a fishing licence, as we have organised that all for you. During the fishing trip, we also supply light refreshments, snacks and photos of you with your catch.
