Fishing is a popular activity at many of our storages, both from boats and kayaks and from land. Blue Rock Lake, in particular, is known as one of Victoria’s premier fisheries for Australian Bass. Before heading out, make sure you have a current Recreational Fishing Licence (RFL). Unless you are exempt, an RFL is required when taking, or attempting to take, any species of fish by any method including line fishing, bait collection, gathering shellfish, yabby fishing, prawning and spear fishing. For more information, or to obtain a RFL, visit Fisheries Victoria.
