Murray Cod, Yellowbelly, Redfin and the occasional Silver Bream are taken in the Murrumbidgee River a short distance from Narrandera. The back reaches of Lake Talbot, the beaches in the Nature Reserve, the Yanco and Colombo Creeks, and the Yanco and Berembed Weirs are favoured fishing areas for local anglers. Good access to the river can also be had on the MIA Forest Drive, maps of which are available from the Narrandera Visitor Information Centre. A boat ramp is located in Narrandera off Old Brewery Road (just east of the Murrumbidgee River Bridge on the Newell Highway). A boat ramp also exists at Lake Talbot, off Broad Street, on Boat Ramp Road adjacent to Lake Talbot Tourist Park. A fishing license is required to fish in NSW.
