The Plenty River, located in the North-Eastern suburbs of Melbourne is certainly a fishable river. However, I’d not consider it to be worthy of making a long trip to just go fishing.
Think of the Plenty as a place locals can get some quick nearby fishing action in.
Look. I’ve got to say it. As a local, I can assure you that you’d be wise not to eat what you catch out of this river, though!
A Semi Perennial River. The river runs dry in some sections during the summer months. Though there are enough deeper pools remaining to ensure it is sustainable for fish life.
