Nagambie to Host Australia’s Richest and Largest Fishing Competition

Nagambie will be hosting Australia’s richest and largest freshwater fishing competition and outdoor lifestyle festival for the next two years – promoting recreational fishing across the state and boosting tourism in the Goulburn Valley.

GoFish Nagambie is expected to attract thousands of visitors which will see up to 5,000 anglers compete in a fishing competition with over $500,000 worth of prices to be won. All fishers will be given a chance to cast a line as the competition will be spread across different categories including boats, kayaks and land-based fishing, where up to 100 anglers will receive a prize.

The GoFish Nagambie fishing competition has a focus on environmental sustainability as it uses a catch, measure and release model to honour the environment and our native fish stocks. With the Goulburn River freshly stocked with Murray Cod and Golden Perch, recreational fishing in Nagambie will be at its absolute best.

Beyond the fishing competition, GoFish Nagambie is a lifestyle and outdoor festival where there is something for the whole family. There will be family friendly entertainment, educational programs, a retail expo and farmers market to promote the region’s local produce.

The festival was secured by the Andrews Labour Government through the Regional Events Fund which aims to drive tourism in smaller communities. The event is predicted to boost the local economy by up to $30 million over the two years.

GoFish Nagambie is set to take place over ANZAC Day weekend from 25 – 28 April 2019 and again in 2020 with more information available at GoFish Nagambie. We recommend subscribing to the GoFish Nagambie News Reel from the competition website to get all your information including advanced notice of when the strictly limited registration opens.
