Get some expert advice

Tasmania offers a range of trout fishing experiences. Sometimes it can help to get some expert advice.

The need for fishing advice depends on the type of fishing experience you are after and your level of angling expertise.

Tackle stores can provide local angling advice. For the beginner, fishing with a more experienced angler is a proven method of learning.

The Trout Fish Tasmania brochure is a good guide for the new or visiting angler. For fishing basics, try the Let’s Go Trout Fishing brochure.

Trout Guides and Lodges

The use of an experienced and accredited guide can make the difference between success and failure for the visiting or novice angler. Tasmania offers a full range of professional guiding services including one day fishing lessons for beginners through to fully guided expeditions.

All guides operating in Tasmania are required to meet certified and audited accreditation standards, including the Tourism Council of Tasmania endorsement. Trout Guides and Lodges Tasmania Inc (TGALT) is the industry body whose members hold these endorsements. For TGALT members go to

Anglers Alliance Tasmania

Anglers Alliance Tasmania (AAT) is the peak body for fresh water anglers, providing a combined angler voice recognised by Government. AAT represents the interests of all anglers through a network of angling clubs. Joining an angling club is an excellent way to learn and share knowledge about trout fishing.

The AAT website provides a variety of information for anglers including real time webcams of popular waters and club and industry contacts. For more information go to
