Throw a line into the Darling River right at your fingertips and try your hand at catching perch (yellowbelly), or the elusive freshwater Murray cod. The catching of a feral carp is not quite guaranteed, but highly likely! If you like yabbies (freshwater crustaceans) you can try your hand at netting them too.
NSW Recreational Fishing Licences can be bought at Shindy’s Inn at Louth and at the Tilpa Royal Hotel at Tilpa. As at July 2013 you can buy one for three days ($6.), one month ($12.), a year ($30.) or three years ($75.)
When fishing in NSW waters, both freshwater and saltwater, you are required by law to pay the NSW Recreational Fishing Fee and carry a receipt showing the payment of the fee. There are a few exemptions to this ruling; if you’re under 18, or an adult assisting an under 18 year old to take a fish using a single rod, or the holder of a current Commonwealth Pensioner Concession card.
More details and exemption rulings can be found at the following NSW Department of Primary Industries website.
