Narooma / Wagonga Inlet Advice?

#1 Post by pdfarrell » Mon Oct 09, 2017 9:17 am

G'day all,

Heading down south to Narooma for a week shortly..
Staying at the Big 4 and plan to get plenty of fishing in.

Anybody have any tips of where to fish and what I'm likely to catch?
Not keen on heading offshore.

Cheers,
PF

Keep an eye on the fishing reports from down that way:

http://www.southcoastregister.com.au/sport/fishing/

Never fished there myself but the water's always looked really clear when I've driven past, and the tidal flow has seemed pretty strong around the highway. Like most bridges it's at a narrow part of the waterway so the tidal flow should be much slower in those wider bays just upstream. I've certainly read reports of all the usual estuary suspects bream, flatties, tailor, whiting, trevally, salmon and jewfish.

If you get bored with Narooma (don't know why you would though) you could travel 30 minutes back up the highway to Tuross Heads. There are lots of small lakes down that way that hold good fish.

The South Coast is a beautiful part of the world. Enjoy your time down there and good luck with the fishing.

.... 30 minutes back up the highway to Tuross Heads......

Yep ..... and keep an eye on the rivers/creeks that you cross on the 'inland side' of the highway too :wink: Some good bass hide in there!! :lek:

I will be interested in your report!! :gu:

The big flathead are starting to stir down this way, so make sure you bring some larger plastics with you.
Wagonga Inlet has a good reputation for producing a few.

I fished Corunna lake last week. plenty of Flathead , few bream and tailor mixed in with em. the lake is closed at the moment, they need rain up there, a heap!

caught all on hard bodies, not a thing on plastics surprisingly!
