Offering fantastic year-round fishing just 15 minutes from Albury-Wodonga, Lake Hume is a must visit fishery for any freshwater angler. Murray cod, golden perch, silver perch, brown trout, and redfin are all available in the vast waters of this man-made impoundment where the Murray and Mitta Mitta rivers meet.
With depths of up to 50 metres, and 350 km of shoreline, the lake suits all forms of fishing, from shore-based bait to boat-based trolling and lure casting.
Lake Hume is managed solely as a Victorian fishery, and Victorian fishing rules apply to all its parts, from the Lake Hume Weir wall upstream to the Seven Mile Creek Junction at Talmalmo. However, a reciprocal license agreement in place for Lake Hume means NSW licenses holders do not require a Victorian fishing license to fish the lake.
From summer to early autumn, Lake Hume can experience low water levels due to high irrigation demand downstream. Visiting anglers should be aware of this as boat ramp access can change depending on the water level. When the lake falls below 10 per cent, boating on the Mitta Mitta arm and all waters downstream of the Bethanga Bridge in the Murray Arm is restricted to 4 knots.
