Family Fishing – Penrith

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

20 Feb 2018 to 31 Mar 2020

Catch and Release family fishing with barb-less hooks every Tuesday at the Regatta Centre.

Get hooked on Family Fishing. Bring your friends or family, or simply join the fishing family at the Sydney International Regatta Centre for catch and release fishing with barb-less hooks. You can fish every Tuesday from 9am to 5pm (subject to the needs of other major events). Check the SIRC event calendar for changes.

Learn about responsible catch and release practices at the scenic Penrith Lakes. There are currently nine species of freshwater fish at the Lakes, including Australian bass, freshwater catfish, long-finned eel and carp.

You must have a fishing licence (can be purchased on site, if over 18 years old) and are required to bring your own equipment.

Contact the Regatta Centre for more details about the fishing program and to find out what you need to bring. The program is coordinated by the Sydney International Regatta Centre and supervised on the day by the Department of Primary Industry Fishing Volunteers.
