The Canberra Anglers Association has a long history dating back to 1945. The constitution summarises the objectives of the Association as:
- the care of trout streams and other waters;
- the encouragement of angling in all its best aspects;
- the promotion of social intercourse amongst anglers including the conduct of competitions;
- the encouragement the protection of trout and other fish;
- to encourage juniors to learn sportsmanship and watercraft through angling.
The club is affiliated to the NSW Council of Freshwater Anglers and is a foundation member of the Capital Region Fishing Alliance. Club newsletters and information are available at the website or on our Facebook page (link on our webpage).
Meetings are held monthly except for January and December – the latter is our traditional end of year barbeque. We meet on the second Wednesday of the month starting 7:30pm at The Raiders Weston Club, 1 Liardet St, Weston, ACT. Fishing events are generally held monthly except for the depths of winter. Fly tying instruction is usually held a fortnight after meetings. Of particular interest is the annual Fly Casting training days held each year on the Sunday of three selected weekends just before the opening of trout fishing in streams (October Long Weekend).
Other membership benefits include discounts at local tackle shops (e.g. Pratt’s Tacklebox/Angler’s Art and Tackleworld).

CAA employs social media on the Internet (specifically Facebook and our newsletter on website/blog) to promote our activities. We also send emails to members with all addresses visible. Please discuss with the Secretary if you have any personal needs in this regard eg if you don’t want yourself or juniors to appear in the newsletter or if you want emails to you to be sent individually rather than with the group.
