Merri River

Since 2006, Fisheries Victoria allow fishing for Trout in the renowned Hopkins River below the Bromfield Street Wier & the Merri River below Wollaston Weir in the winter months greatly extending the fishing season. The lower Merri receives about 5000 yearlings brown trout annually and many quality fish to 2kg are caught.

The lower Merri is wide and exposed below Cassidy's bridge which make it idea for trolling with a quite electric motor. Further upstream, you can cast amongst the willows for best results. Better trophy fish are caught during and after heavy rains when they are the most active.
