Tasmania presents the a great opportunity for trout fly fishing while being completely immersed in stunning, wild landscapes that are within a short distance of our cities, including Hobart.
Many of these stunning locations are home to world-class fly fishing opportunities, and through our experience, Trout Tales Tasmania has compiled a quick list of some of the best trout fly fishing locations near Hobart.
The Derwent Valley is located approximately 45 minutes from Hobart. The Tyenna, Styx and Plenty rivers offer fantastic sport throughout the season, particularly during late summer and autumn when water levels are low and fish rise willingly to dry flies.

Hobart’s largest estuary system is the Derwent River, which offers a wide variety of fishing methods and different species of fish. Sea run trout are common and reach an impressive size after coming into the system.
