Fly Fishing Tasmania

  • Private Trout Fishing: 4 Lakes
    28 gates offer guests not just luxury accommodation, but three private lakes, all yours to fish until your heart’s content! We are very excited to now have Tiger Trout in our Lakes which is a cross between a Brown Trout and Brook Trout. We are one of the only fisheries where you can land one of these special beauties! The Lakes and Lagoons are a Fly Fishers paradise with Wild Brown, Rainbow Trout, Brook Trout and Tiger Trout in superb condition, feeding on a wide variety of insect life. Enjoy dry, nymph or wet fly fishing, dependant on the time of the year and who knows, you may catch a double figured fish!. 'Windsors Lake' is relatively new and covering new ground and is creating the Tasmanian phenomenon of 'tailing trout', through shallows for exciting Spring fishing. Don’t be surprised to be broken off or find yourself well into the backing, so come down and accept the challenge of 28 gates. If you don’t fly fish , we are only too happy to teach you, no fishing licence is required as we are a private fishery and you can fish all year round.

    If would like to fish further afield, make 28 gates farm stay accommodation your base and explore Tasmania's famous Highland Lakes, which are just a short drive away or local rivers and waterways.

  • Owner and guide Peter Hayes has an in-depth knowledge and understanding of Tasmanian trout, and his contagious passion for fishing has most certainly rubbed off on all of the guides representing Peter Hayes Guided Fishing. All of the guides are well-versed in the local flora and fauna, and are friendly and approachable. For those who require a bit of assistance in the technique of spin and/or fly fishing, they’ll happily oblige with demonstrations and explanations.

  • A fly-only private fishery that’s located in the middle of Nugent and Buckland, Twin Lakes is just 50 minutes in the car from Hobart. Considering the extremely high chances of encountering brown and rainbow trout over the magical 10lb mark, this location most definitely can be referred to as ‘trophy water’!
