Portland is a small city in Victoria, Australia, and is the oldest European settlement in the state. It is also the main urban centre in the Shire of Glenelg and is located on Portland Bay.
As one of Victoria’s fishing hot spots, the fertile seas and rivers in Portland and along the Discovery Coast offer a wealth of opportunities for keen fishers.
Whether you prefer game fishing, river fishing or surf fishing there are plenty of productive waters well stocked with Salmon, King George Whiting, Snapper, Mulloway, Tailor Trevally, Garfish and Kingfish.
The Fitzroy, Surry and Glenelg Rivers along with Yambuk and Bridgewater Lakes, are popular destinations for local fishermen, whilst those with a boat can relax in a safe harbour, which also boast protection from westerly weather during summer.
