Bright and surrounds, with its pristine waters, is sure to cater for all your fishing desires, whether it’s fly fishing in rivers and streams or Alpine angling in lakes and reservoirs.
Fishing in the North-east Victorian Alpine country has got to be one of the most peaceful and tranquil adventures you can undertake. The area is largely untouched and you can disappear for hours at a time without seeing a soul.
The main rivers of Ovens, Buffalo and Buckland flow in wide valleys of cleared farmland surrounded by mountains. High annual rainfall and granite rocks in the mountains result in clear, fast flowing, clear water rivers and tributaries. These support good self-sustaining populations of blackfish and brown trout. Brown Trout and Rainbow Trout, Freshwater crayfish and yabbies can also be found in the mountain streams.
Access to almost all rivers is excellent with good fly fishing possible without extensive walking.
