The rivers and streams that run throughout the island are home to three types of trout and one type of eel; however, most visitors don't fish the inland waterways of Kangaroo Island. If you choose to try out the freshwater on the island, it is important to remember that it is illegal to fish in the streams and rivers of the National Parks of Kangaroo Island.
Subtidal fishing, which is rock fishing from offshore reefs, allows visiting fisherman to catch a variety of fish such as perch, mullet fish, blue groper and spiny leatherjacket.
The intertidal fishing in the bays and estuaries of Kangaroo Island are home to red mullet, snook, snapper and whiting.
Deep Sea Fishing
You can try deep sea fishing for tuna, snapper, shark and sea perch through one of the many fishing charters available on the island.
Kangaroo Island has strict bag and boat catch limits that you can become familiar with through the Department of Primary Industries and Resources of South Australia website. Similarly, no marine organisms may be removed from the island.
