Fishing

Daylesford & the Macedon Ranges

  • Family fishing at Tuki Trout Farm, Smeaton, Daylesford and the Macedon Ranges, Victoria, Australia

Spend a few peaceful hours fishing for blackfish, brown trout or redfin in the rivers and reservoirs of Daylesford and the Macedon Ranges.

Rivers run
Go on a fishing expedition for small trout, redfin and blackfish and other native fish in the upper reaches of the Werribee River in Werribee State Park.

The Lerderderg River also contains a good number of trout, however the surrounding gorge country limits access to the river. The best access points are at McKenzies Flat, Blackwood and O'Brien's Crossing.

Take one home
There are also a number of lakes stocked with trout, with good fishing at times, including the Newlyn Reservoir near Creswick, the Hepburn Lagoon near Hepburn Springs and the Malmsbury, Lauriston and Coliban Reservoirs near Kyneton.

If you're not game to leave dinner to chance, Tuki Trout Farm guarantees a catch. Have your trout either expertly prepared for lunch, or cleaned and wrapped to take home.
