Want to get a hard copy?

The Victorian Recreational Fishing Guide is available in three key formats: hard copy, via our VicFishing app and here on our website.

Hard copies can be obtained from most fishing tackle shops that sell recreational fishing licences, by ringing the Customer Service Centre on 136 186 or from most regional offices of The Victorian Fisheries Authority. Please note: During COVID-19 restrictions, hard copy guides will not be available for distribution. In the meantime, please download the Victorian Recreational Fishing Guide App.

You may also email improving.fishing@vfa.vic.gov.au to obtain a hard copy of the latest Victorian Recreational Fishing Guide.

Please be advised it will take approximately 10 - 14 working days for the guides to arrive after ordering.
