    Mt Gambier, Australia.
    You can drive to the Murray river cod, carp and perch can be cought when a fresh flows through. If you are after trout etc you will need to travel to higher altitudes in Victoria.

    At Nelson, about 30 minutes away on the Glenelg River, fishing is very popular. When we were there a few weeks ago, there were a lot fishing from the banks and from boats. A lot of Victorian fishermen now come this way too, since our lakes are drying up fast.

    Not sure what fish they were catching, but I know there's freshwater crays in the area. Port Macdonnel is famous for its lobster fishing, lobster capital in fact, and that's only 30 mins from Mt Gambier as well.
