Large Boat/ Raft Fishing for Murray Cod and Australian Natives

1279 Myrtleford-Yackandandah Road, Mudgegonga, Victoria, 3737

North East Victoria has some of Australia's best native fisheries, especially for the iconic Murray cod. Join River Escapes in their vessels that open up large sections of river or lake to the angler, much of it inaccessible on foot.

Your guide will concentrate on targeting fish holding structure, holding the boat or raft in position while anglers focus on landing their fly or lure in the correct spot.

While you are moving quietly down the river, your guide can also point out wildlife as you are taking in the beautiful scenery.

The fishing season for Murray cod is open from 1 December till the 31 August. If you are keen to chase other native fish such as golden perch, especially during the peak months of spring, River Escapes can also arrange trips on local lakes.
