Monaro Recreational Fishing Guide


Our State's fisheries are a community-owned resource. We all have a responsibility to protect and safeguard this natural asset for present and future generations.

Fishing regulations are in place to protect and conserve our fish stocks and aquatic habitats to ensure that fishing activities remain sustainable.

The Monaro District boasts a tremendous variety of waterways from which to choose. Situated mostly on a sub-alpine plateau, typically over 600 m in elevation, the waterways range from large dams and fast running mountain streams to slower lowland rivers in the valleys.
