Tasmania's wild brown trout fishery established in 1864, is one of the best is the world.

From accessible areas to remote wilderness there is something for all anglers.

Our wilderness fishing is unique with thousands of lakes and tarns offering fishing like nowhere else.

Large, popular, productive fisheries can be found in the central highlands of Tasmania.

Resident and sea run trout are a feature of our rivers and estuaries.

Tasmania's inland waters offer the chance to catch good numbers of fish or even the fish of a life time. By world standards the fishing pressure is low.

Whether you prefer bait, lure or fly fishing, there is something for everyone. Good access is available for boating or shore fishing.

Good trout fishing can be found within two hours drive of all Tasmania's major cities.
