Fishing the Murrumbidgee

The sport of kings

Reg & friend

Hay has many great spots along the river for fishing, and the best times of year to fish are the Autumn months. The Murrumbidgee River is a haven for many varieties of fish including Murray Cod, Yellow Belly (Perch), Redfin, Brim, Catfish and Carp. Crayfish can also be caught in season, but bag and size limits must be observed. Bait is readily available in Hay, and there are several outlets where fishing licenses can be purchased. The Hay Weir is a popular fishing spot, along with several other reserves. A full list of reserves can be obtained from the Visitors Centre.
