Each fish species will have a size and bag limit to let you know what you can and can’t keep. This will vary in each state so please check out the useful links below for all of the up to date information you need.

Safety near the water
Whilst you are out enjoying the outdoors and fishing it is very important to make sure you are doing it safely.
Here are some tips to help you with safety near the water:
• Always check the conditions before you go fishing. Never go fishing during heavy rains, waves, strong winds and warnings.
• Wear a life jacket/PFD: A life jacket will keep you afloat in the water if you fall in so you can be rescued easily.
• Always protect yourself from the harmful UV rays of the sun. Stay sunsmart and wear your D.Y.F.C hat, apply sunscreen and wear some sunglasses.
• Never fish alone. Fishing is best enjoyed with others so always go out with your parents or friends.
• Avoid dangerous areas such as slippery or sharp rocks, high or steep riverbanks.
• If you are in the tropics, you should always stay alert and be crocwise.
• Be careful when handling fish, baiting hooks and tying on lures.
