The Macleay River is considered by many as the best and most productive native Australian Bass river in NSW. If you are looking for good catches or simply seek to capture your personal best or that trophy bass then we recommend that you come and experience what’s on offer. If you are not convinced or remain skeptical then please visit our photo gallery which captures some of the fish both ourselves and our guests have caught (and released). Bass Lodge is ideally positioned to offer a huge range of freshwater fishing options providing access to largely untouched stretches of the Macleay River and its many tributary streams.
Combine the fishing opportunities together with the 1st class accommodation of Bass Lodge and even the most demanding fisherman's expectations can be met. Our guide knows the river and can assist you to maximize your fishing. Fishing trips can be guided or self guided.
