Little Yarra River Fishing, Powelltown to Launching Place
The Little Yarra River plays a key role in Melbourne’s water supply, but there are also many activities that visitors can engage in at the river. Fishing is a popular activity, and for good reason, as there are numerous fish species including Australian Smelt, River Blackfish and Pouched Lamprey. On a good day, visitors may also catch Rainbow Trout and Brown Trout.
Wildlife species that are easy to spot along the river include Sooty Owls, Southern Brown Bandicoots, Leadbeater Possums as well as Swamp Skinks. The trees along the river are quite tall, some towering at 50 meters, and offer shaded areas for visitors to relax and unwind.
