    Why You'll Love This

    What's Included?

    We arrive at the Tawonga Fishing Lodge on Friday night in time for a delicious dinner before settling down for the night. Next morning at breakfast we can feed beautiful parrots, being careful not to get too close.

    We then head for the nearby Kiewa River for some instruction in fly fishing basics for an hour or two, rewarded by a visit to the Mt Beauty bakery for some of their award-winning coffee. After that, we return to complete our fishing education before enjoying the contents of a bulging picnic hamper in the shade of an old weeping willow tree hanging over the river.

    Following lunch, we take off for the Bogong high plains, elevation: 1650 metres above sea level, and fish the small mountain creeks that abound, each absolutely stuffed with wild-bred brown trout. These fish are very agile and will test your new fishing skills to the max.

    We return to the lodge in time for dinner and the rest of the evening is yours to spend as you wish. Next morning we travel to a remote wilderness river, down bush tracks often studded with wombat holes. Your guide may be able to point out emus in the distance or trees that have been rubbed during the night by wild deer.

    Once at the river, we stay there all day fishing for rainbow trout and brown trout and perhaps enjoy a bit of a dip to cool off before the long trek home. Once back at the lodge we can elect to stay for dinner and another night of restful sleep in pristine surroundings or choose to leave before or after dinner in order to get home before midnight.
    On the Day

    Session Length

    The fishing trips are held over 2 days, usually weekends. Departure time is 8.00am Saturday & returning to the lodge by 5.00pm. The weekend includes two nights’ accommodation (Friday & Saturday nights) and all meals at Tawonga Fishing Lodge in Tawonga.

    Numbers on the Day

    We cater for a maximum of four persons with a minimum of two persons in any fishing party. Fees are on a sliding scale, reducing per person as participant numbers increase.

    Weather

    Trips are held from September to June, which is mostly good weather but are cancelled if thunderstorms are imminent or in progress. However, if it only rains trips can still proceed.

    Dress Code

    Casual and comfortable. Bring a pair of socks and a belt for wearing with waders, a hat, a warm top (not a jacket) even in summer, some sunscreen lotion and polarising sunglasses if you have them.

    Other Info

    Unless exempt, anglers aged 16 and over need a fishing licence, $5.50 for 48 hours or $11.00 for 28 days (additional cost). The Victorian trout fishing (in streams) season runs from September to June, although fishing in lakes is conducted on an all year round basis.
