Australia's Most Renowned Trout Fishery
Snowy Mountains fly fishing is some of the most renowned trout fishing in mainland Australia. Hidden in every gully are alpine creeks, joining together into clear freestone rivers. These rivers flow under rugged-peaks and through eucalypt forest, out onto the high plains where they become surrounded by snowgrass hills and become meandering streams. Throughout their journey, from the Snowfields to the Snowy Valleys there are trout.
Our team in the Mountains is headed up by Snowy Mountains local Mickey ‘Finn’ Shanahan. Mickey grew up chasing trout from the foothills to the peaks of Australia’s highest mountain range; cutting his teeth on the Murrumbidgee in his front yard. Mickey and our team know the high country and its seasons, using their skill to find you fish in this challenging but beautiful environment. If it’s your first-time fly fishing or you want to finally catch that elusive trophy – Mickey and our team spend the hours on the water to give you the best chance of success.
