Hold onto your rod tightly as your guide takes you into the Nepean and Warragamba Rivers to hunt for bass! Along the way, you might catch trout, mullet, carp or herring. Your knowledgeable fishing guide has many years experience fishing these waters and will be sure to take you to the best spots!
On the day of your freshwater fishing adventure, be welcomed aboard the fishing vessel by local guide, Steve. The boat is 4.6m and is a custom built bass boat with a 60hp outboard to get you up the river quickly and smoothly. There is also an electric motor so that you can sneak up on the fish in the best spots on the river!
Most tours have only 2 anglers on board with the guide that has been doing charters for over 10 years. After a quick safety rundown and a brief trip into the magnificent Nepean and Warragamba gorges, it won’t be long before you have your fishing line dangling in the water in anticipation of your first catch! In the Nepean and the Warragamba, you might catch either bass, trout, 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.
Not to mention getting a unique view of Warragamba dam from below the huge dam wall. You will mainly be targeting the hard fighting native bass on either surface or diving lures, depending on conditions. You'll also target rainbow and brown trout, mullet, herring or carp as you're casting the lures for the bass.
Tours are run in the late afternoon, so you’ll experience the exciting action of surface lure strikes, as the local bass population smashes surface walking lures and with the light fishing equipment, you’re up for a sure fight! You'll use top quality rods and reels, with the best of east coast and tailor-made lures. You don’t even need a fishing licence, as that has been organised for you. During the fishing trip, you'll also enjoy light refreshments and snacks.
Trips depart everyday at sunrise or sunset. Please allow a minimum of 4 hours for the entire experience. Exact meeting times will be provided at the time of booking.
Perfect for anyone with a love of fishing! Children are welcome, but must be accompanied by a paying adult.
