The Mitta Mitta River tailrace begins below the Dartmouth regulating pondage. Due to the depth of Lake Dartmouth, it supplies very cold and clear water into the river, making it ideal for trout. The Mitta Mitta River is characterised by fantastic long riffle sections, often with large pools in between, set against a backdrop of valley farms and picturesque mountains.
The raft opens up many kilometres of river and is truly a great way to fish the Mitta. Large gravel bars can be explored on foot by exiting the raft. Depending on the season and flow conditions, you can be rafting the Mitta as early as trout season opening. Reliable hatches usually begin by early October and large terrestrials like grasshoppers and cicadas begin to make an appearance as summer rolls around. The elusive platypus is regularly encountered, providing a welcome distraction for both fisherman or even a non-fishing partner.
