National Capital Sport Fishing

Nature and wildlife

National Capital Sport Fishing provides all necessary tackle and equipment to deliver a safe, superbly equipped, professionally operated, high quality sports fishing experience for up to three anglers per tour for a great fishing experience on the waters adjacent to the ACT, and particularly Lake Burley Griffin. The purpose built 4.7m centre console sport-fishing vessel is fitted out with the latest fish finding technology and equipment to deliver a great day on the water.

The primary target species are Murray Cod and Golden Perch, and the introduced species of Redfin and Carp also regularly feature in the catch. Lure fishing is our preferred approach for Murray Cod and Golden Perch, using a broad range of casting and trolling techniques utilising a wide range of lures, depending on conditions and the mood of the fish.

Ensuring the sustainability of our fisheries is a fundamental principle of the operation and it is a condition of our permit that all Murray Cod and Golden Perch captured in Lake Burley Griffin must be released back in to the water. For other waters, the fishing regulations as issued by the relevant management authorities apply, but catch and release fishing is encouraged!
