About this Trail

We strongly recommend you download the glove box guide for this trail which is also available on this site and soon as a downloadable app.

Apart from all the site information it also contains information about the river, its fish (some of which are threatened species! – so take care), fishing tips and advice on how to be a Riversmart angler.

Most importantly the guide explains how you can practice catch and release fishing – releasing back to the river, safely, those fish that are off-limits, too small or more than you need for a feed.

Please respect this river and its fish and don’t spoil it for others by being thoughtless, littering or not following the fishing rules.

Report any illegal fishing activities you see to the authorities on 1800 043 536.  Thanks.

We hope you enjoy your fishing experience on the Macquarie River.
