Hay Shire has many great spots along both the Murrumbidgee and Lachlan rivers for fishing. The Rivers are a haven for many varieties of fish including Murray Cod, Yellow Belly (Perch), Redfin, Brim, Catfish and Carp. Crayfish can also be caught in season, but bag and size limits must be observed. Yabbying is also a fun activity that is popular with both visitors and locals.

Bait is readily available in Hay, and there are several outlets where fishing licenses can be purchased. The Hay Weir is a popular fishing spot, along with several other reserves. A full list of reserves can be obtained from the Visitors Centre.
