Spend a few peaceful hours fishing for blackfish, brown trout or redfin in the rivers and reservoirs of Daylesford and the Macedon Ranges.
Catching dinner in rugged surrounds
Fish 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 contains a good number of trout, but access to the river is limited by the surrounding rugged gorge country. The best access points are at McKenzies Flat, Blackwood and O'Brien's Crossing.
Take home a trout
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 lunch, or cleaned and wrapped to take home.
