The section between Cobram and Yarrawonga is known for being one of the
best spot to fish. Golden perch can be caught in a good number of
impoundments along the area.
The Dead River which is about 3 km downstream of Yarrawonga provides
excellent golden perch. Other significant areas include clay banks at
Brownings and Forges. If you want some adventure and prepared to motor
downstream for about 20 minutes, the Black Hole and Blue Hole are
legendary golden perch haunts.
Just like any other fishing areas, the best place to find golden perch
is usually the most difficult to fish. You will catch more golden perch
around sunken timber than most anywhere else.
The Murray River is also a home to the fabled Murray cod. It is best to
fish between September until the end of summer as these fish can be at
their best. Their size may range from 0.5 kg to 50 kg.
