Victoria is home to thousands of keen anglers from all walks of life. DEPI's Fishing Guides help Victorians make the most out of their fishing experience by providing detailed information on our waterways, fish species, legislation, and associated government departments and programs.
The popular Victorian Recreational Fishing Guide, is available in hard copy, free of charge, so that you can take it fishing with you or leave it in your tackle box or boat. Hard copies can be obtained from most fishing tackle shops that sell recreational fishing licences, DEPI offices or by ringing the Customer Service Centre on 136 186.
The guide can also be accessed via the free Recreational Fishing Application for iPhone and Android, featuring colour illustrations of more than 65 species found in Victoria's waterways.
The Inland Angling Guide assists anglers with information about fish species, choosing where to fish, stocking, licences and other handy information.
