Hike in overnight remote fishing

Post by Fisho11 » Fri Sep 08, 2023 9:46 am

Gday all,
Ive been heading up the Vic high country a bit in the past year and have been absolutely loving it.
For trout opening I fished what seemed like an untouched creek and found it to be amazing from the scenery to the fishing.
Im wanting to do more of this in the future on a larger scale, hiking in to some hard to get to areas of Rivers with overnight gear.
I haven't done anything like this and was wondering if anyone had some pointers about getting started.
Looking at purchasing a GPS as well as a detailed topographical map to get started.

Good Luck with your adventures. Not sure where you want to start but suggest you have a look at Google Earth. Also add to your equipment:- EPERB / EPIRB?? as well as Saterlite phone - Make a phone call every 3 or 4 hours so that your position can be available in case of any Emergency.

Thanks mate, Ive spent a fair bit of time on earth and found a few potential locations. I'll check out the EpIRB and Sat Phones.

personally i'd leave the sat phone and epirb and get a garmin inreach mini 2.
gps, download the avenza app on your phone and search for getlost maps for the area your going to and download that, put your phone on airplane mode and the battery should last for days. might be worth putting ur phone in a ziplock bag too if you think theres a chance it could end up in the drink.

Make sure you let people know where you're going and when you'll be back. In case things don't go according to plan. Proper clothing too.

Will definitely look into this, looks extremely versatile at first glance! The multipurpose use it had looks awesome!

Fishing where few people if ever fish is a fantastic experience and likely to produce better than average results. I myself prefer river rafting to somewhere, where no-one fishes and fishing can be amazing. But a lot of truly remote place can only be reached by hiking, I still got lakes Barracouta and Wau Wauka on my list, as well as Aire River and a couple of remote East Gippsland rivers.
