With a surface area more than 35 times the size of Sydney Harbour, there’s endless scope for fishing adventures in Port Phillip.

Whether you’re catching trevally, snapper, squid, leatherjacket, salmon or bream, most fantastic fishing adventures on Port Phillip start at Patterson River. Four launching ramps with multiple lanes, ample parking and continually improving facilities cater for thousands of boat launches each year and make Patterson River one of Australia’s most popular boat ramp facilities. 

Fishing is permitted on Port Phillip and may be undertaken from either a vessel or on land excluding channels and marine national parks and sanctuaries.

A Recreational Fishing Licence is required by all anglers in Victoria for persons aged between 18 – 70 unless exempt. Please observe all fishing regulations and remember to check bag and size limits, fishing methods and closed seasons. For more information contact Fisheries Victoria.
