Autumn’s Allure: Mother Nature’s Best-Kept Secret

Why should you choose Autumn Escape for your fishing trip? Autumn in north-east Victoria is an angler’s paradise. While Spring can bring heavy rains, and Summer brings overly warm conditions, Autumn in this region is just right. The days are cooler, the nights are colder, and the rivers are in prime condition for trout fishing.

As natural rhythms shift, late-season hatches of insects fire up and the fish feed intensively, giving you ample opportunities to chase trout using light rods and dry flies. Autumn also brings the chance to witness extraordinary Mayfly hatches and out-of-this-world Ant falls, promising some of the best fishing of the year.

Moreover, angling pressure is significantly reduced during Autumn, making it an ideal time for a tranquil fishing escape. Our recommended Monday-to-Friday format guarantees we’ll have plenty of water to ourselves each day.

Our Autumn Escape is for fly fishers of any age or skill level.

Trip Highlights: Walk-Wade Fishing & Drift Boating

This trip is a set to be a mixture of drift boat and walk-wade fishing. With access to a variety of rivers, from small mountain streams to tailwaters like the Goulburn, there’s an abundance of choices from day to day.

These trips also have at least three drift boats available, and potentially more for larger groups. The possibility of drifting the Goulburn as a group adds a unique dimension to this fishing adventure.
