Fishing and Boating in Lake Oberon
Fishing is a popular pastime around Oberon, which can be enjoyed for most of the year.
Lake Oberon is regularly stocked with Rainbow Trout and Golden Perch fingerlings. Lake Oberon supplies drinking water so swimming, camping and lighting of fires beside the lake are prohibited. Visitors may walk around the foreshore, if they keep close to the water’s edge. Access to many of the streams in the area may be through private property.
Lake Oberon is open to anglers all year round, but the streams are subject to Freshwater Fishing Regulations. The season for stream fishing opens at the start of October long weekend and closed at the end of the June long weekend. All anglers must have a Freshwater Fishing Licence.
Lake Oberon is ideal for canoes, kayaks and small fishing or sailing dinghies which are electric powered as Lake Oberon is open to non-powered boating only. As Lake Oberon sits 1068 metres above sea level, it's classed as alpine waters and life jackets must be worn at all times.
There are a number of access points around the lake, including the recently upgraded area called The Reef, vehicle and trailer boat access to the water’s edge.
