South Riana Dam has become recognised as a boutique fishery in the north west. Since its creation in 2015 the dam has developed in to an excellent regional water with its convenient location just 20 km from Penguin.
Regular stocking with wild brown trout fry by the IFS has underpinned the existing trout population and some natural recruitment. Anglers are taking well-conditioned fish using all methods including bait fishing, lure casting and fly fishing.
Canoes and Kayaks are permitted and can assist anglers to access the northern and western shores of the dam.
Please respect the private land surrounding the dam and follow the access rules to maintain the area.
