Trout fishing season closing soon in Victorian rivers

Media release: Trout fishing season closing soon in Victorian rivers
28 May 13

Trout fishing Trout fishing season in Victorian rivers closes at midnight on June 10.

Recreational anglers who fish for trout and salmon in Victorian rivers are reminded that the season closes at midnight on Monday 10 June.

Fisheries Victoria Executive Director Anthony Hurst said the annual closure protects most spawning trout and enables wild stocks to replenish undisturbed each winter.

"The Queen's Birthday long weekend provides freshwater anglers with one last opportunity to catch trout in our rivers this season," Mr Hurst said.

"Although the rivers close for about three months during winter, anglers can still fish for trout and salmon in Victorian lakes and reservoirs.

"The annual trout closed season applies only to rivers and streams.

"More than 130 lakes are stocked by Fisheries Victoria annually using fishing licence fees and the Victorian Government's $16 million Recreational Fishing Initiative, so there are still plenty of good fishing opportunities on offer while the rivers are closed.

"One of the best performing waters currently is Lake Toolondo, south west of Horsham.

"It's been producing trout to 2kg for anglers and has rebounded strongly following several years of drought and low water levels."

Other stocked lakes worth a visit during winter include:

Lake Wendouree
Tullaroop Reservoir
Lake Purrumbete
Lauriston Reservoir
Lake Hume
Lake Bolac
Blue Rock Lake
Cairn Curran Reservoir
Barkers Creek Reservoir
Eildon Pondage
Devilbend Reservoir
Lake Fyans
Hepburn Lagoon
Mount Beauty Pondage
Lake Wartook
Wurdiboluc Reservoir

Mr Hurst said the trout fishing season in rivers re-opens at midnight on Friday 6 September this year.
