Fishing at Lake Barra
Fishing on Lake Barra is best in spring, summer and autumn where there is the opportunity to catch a Barramundi, Bass or freshwater Jew. The fishing at Lake Barra is catch and release and fishing is with barbless lures only.
Kayak's are the best way to have a successful day, but fishing from the banks is an acceptable alternative. Two day fishing permits are available at a reasonable cost per person and the lake is restocked with fingerlings on a regular basis. Still waiting for the record of 95cm to be broken, will it be you? When you catch a Barra we encourage you to send us a photo to go on our wall of fame!
