Inverloch Activities & Attractions
For the rod and line fisherman, great opportunities exist to land a decent fish from the shores of Anderson Inlet the most southerly mangrove habitat in Australia which provides an excellent environment for trevally, flathead, pinkie snapper, mullet, salmon, tailor, whiting and gummy shark. The best bait is live bait, so ask the locals where to pump. If you do not have your own boat you can hire one from Inverloch Charters at Mahers Landing 4 kms from town towards Tarwin Lower or book a place of one of their fishing charters.
Remember, whether you are freshwater, estuary or saltwater fishing you need a licence.
Every angler can contribute to the welfare of the environment on which the sport depends. Discarded fishing line and empty food and drink containers should be disposed of thoughfully as not to cause littering and to avoid possible injury to people or animals.
