Anglers fishing for freshwater fish (including brown and rainbow trout, freshwater cobbler and redfin perch) may only use a single fishing rod and line or a single hand-held line. The use of both lures and bait is permitted.

Landing net restrictions apply. Anglers may possess only a short-handled (maximum 500mm) net within 50m of the waterline of most dams and rivers all year round. This is to protect marron, which may only be taken from 8 January to 5 February annually using specific gear. Refer to the marron recreational fishing guide for permitted fishing methods.
