Fishing Trip at Alpine National Park

Victoria's Alpine National Park has been a favourite among many amateur and professional fisherman. Not only does it provide some wonderful fishing spots, the Alpine National Park comes with some breathtaking scenery. This is the place that hosts some of Victoria's highest and largest mountains, thus it can get a little frosty particularly during the cold months.

The best fishing spots in terms of beautiful surroundings and the potential to make them bite include Rose River and King River.

Rose River comes streaming down from the forests in the region and can be reached by fishermen from just about any bank that the rivers flows past. With a bit of patience, most of the fish you'll catch are likely to be brown trout no more than two kilograms in size. If you happen to catch a rainbow trout that weighs at least 250 grams, throw a party and boast to your mates. That is a prized possession in these waters.

The King River may be classified as having two streams - one above Lake William Hovell and the other below the same lake. It is recommended that you try fishing above Lake William Hovell because the streams of the other section have been eroded over the years and are subject to siltation. Both environmental processes have led to a significant reduction in fish, causing them to travel further upstream.
