An Excursion into the Lake Eildon Catchment

Experience fly fishing at its best on Australia’s premier fly fishery, the Goulburn River. Along its 75 kilometres of Blue Ribbon tailwater, you will find an abundance of mayfly and caddis, producing some of the best dry fly fishing in the country. It also has teriffic grasshopper fishing in the warmer months, and hatches that persist right through until the end of May.

But, the Goulburn is not your only option; rivers like Jamieson, Howqua, Delatite, and Big also offer fantastic trout fishing opportunities up in the hills. Think mountain streams with wet wading and smaller fish on dry flies. Closer to home, tributaries like the Rubicon offer excellent fly fishing for larger wild browns.

We can also arrange for you to visit historically significant locations such as Mr. Findlay’s Water Race, letting you follow in the footsteps of the legendary David Scholes.

What’s Included in Your Trip

We promise you an unmatched fly fishing experience in the Goulburn Valley. Starting from our Flyshop in Alexandra, enjoy four days of guided fishing with no set agenda, letting us mould your trip based on the conditions and your preferences each day.

Accommodation & Food

Upon arrival, you will be guided to your comfortable private accommodation. After settling in, join us back at our base for a complimentary BBQ dinner and trip planning session. While the remainder of the trip is prescribed as self-catering, all homes rented have full kitchen facilities, and there are numerous restaurants and cafes nearby, as well as a supermarket.

Day-to-day, there are no limitations to what we can arrange. Be it boat, walk-wade, or even special instruction in fishing techniques, streamcraft, and casting, we have you covered. You can fish as a group or split boats into different areas; we organise as per your preference.
