TOURS - TROUT FISHING TASMANIA
Fly Fishing Tasmania tours to our best trout waters
ONE DAY TOUR PACKAGES
Gary and Fiona of Trout Territory - Fish Wild Tasmania and their team of professional guides can offer one day tours.
We start from your accommodation in Launceston, Hobart, Central Highlands, airport, or can meet you at a pre-arranged location.
Travel to the Tasmanian central highlands is around 1.5 hours from our major cities through rich heritage countryside and provincial towns. There are also many closer fishing options, with lowland rivers and lakes. Fishing locations are selected according to weather, conditions, and water levels.
Our fly fishing tours are all inclusive and provide everything you will need from fly fishing tuition if you need it to customised boat, all fly and lure gear, morning tea, lunch, waders and wet weather clothing.
EXTENDED TOURS OF 2 OR MORE DAYS
We recommend you consider doing 2 or 3 days to maximize the experience and cover a variety of waters as well as allowing for a poor weather day. Extending your tour is the best way to experience trout fishing Tasmania as we have a vast range of waters and options. When we stay overnight in the Highlands we might try for an early morning fish then back for a late breakfast if the weather is good for that, then out again for the rest of the day. This extends the experience to other styles and offers anglers the chance to try more of our unique fly fishing techniques. Fly fishing tuition is also available on all tours.
ACCOMMODATION & LODGING
Accommodation is an extra if you decide to stay overnight in the Highlands and we recommend the following:
Central Highland Lodge at Miena on the shores of Great Lake.
This is the best mid range accommodation available in the Highlands and the rates are very reasonable.
They have a great lounge, bar and bistro at the lodge for all guests.
