Fishing in Anglesea

Fishing in Anglesea

Have a go at reeling in one that didn’t get away!

Grab some bait and hit-up the wooden platforms along the Anglesea River to cast out a line or two any time of year. They’re easy to spot and reach with nearby car parks and paths. Many budding anglers remember dangling their first line from one of the bridges at Coogarah Park.

Note: adults generally need a Victorian Amateur Fishing Licence, available from the Department of Environment and Primary Industries (DEPI) at, the Lorne Visitor Information Centre, local hardware shops and newsagents in various locations. Worth checking first!

Fishing Platforms

Throw in a line and try your luck. Maybe you’ll land a BIG one! Stake out a spot on one of the many fishing platforms dotted along the Anglesea River. There’s a great little platform right by the playground for the kids too. (Adults must hold a fishing licence)
