Particular highlights of fly fishing near Hobart include: 

  • a range of fishing locations
  • opportunities throughout the trout fishing season
  • diverse water types and techniques
  • experience other activities and things to do in the area

The greater Hobart area offers diverse range of fishing spots, including the Derwent River System, 28 Gates Farm Stay and Private Fishery and the Central Highlands region.

All of these locations provide vast trout fishing opportunities through out the Tasmanian fly fishing season, ranging from river and stream fishing to exploring larger lakes and lagoons, and provide excellent fishing for both new and experienced anglers.

The time of year is often a determining factor of techniques used and water types fished. Rivers in the Derwent Valley are a great example of this, with excellent nymph fishing on offer when water levels are high, and dry fly fishing a feature as water levels drop.
