Each trip runs with two boats, four anglers and two guides.

This trip begins and ends in Khancoban where you will be treated to a great week of guided fishing from our drift boats on some of Australia’s best trout fishing rivers, including the Swampy Plain, Tumut and Mitta Mitta.

These rivers are tailraces, meaning they source their water from a dam outlet. Because of this they offer cold and clear water for most of the year, even at the height of summer when other freestone rivers may be too low and/or too warm. All three rivers have healthy numbers of wild trout, extensive sections of inaccessible water for the wading angler ( willow lined and / or bounded by private property ), and large populations of aquatic insects.

Put simply. They offer some of the best fly fishing in Australia.

Accommodation will take the form of comfortable private homes or small country motels. Staying in a central location and venturing out each day gives us a great number of options over the course of the week and provides us with a settled base; so that all we need worry about each day is catching fish.

All breakfasts and lunches ( sandwiches/fruit/water/soft drinks ) will be provided, with the only out of pocket expenses being dinners, alcohol and fishing licenses.

We will provide you with two to three of our most experienced guides and drift boat per pair of anglers, all flies; as well as the use of any gear if required. All prices are based on twin-share but this trip can be run 1:1. Prices on application.

Participants are expected to have their own vehicle for transportation to and from Khancoban. Airport transfers are possible if you are travelling as a group.



Below you will find a list of trip dates. However, this trip can be run at any time for you and your group. This package was devised around a minimum group size of four (maximum of six) and cannot run unless we book at least four spots.

Whilst the sample itinerary lists the Swampy Plain River (two days), Tumut River (two days) and Mitta Mitta River (one day) – this is just a rough guide and the choice of which river to fish will come down to the preference of the group each day. We can also throw in a day of wade fishing on a small mountain stream for those who’d like to mix things up a little.

So don’t hesitate. Call up a fishing partner, organise a group, or just book yourself in for a great six day escape in the high country.

Phone 03 5773 2513  or 0418 995 611 to discuss the options. We are available from 8am – 10pm, every day.
