Looking to camp next to some skinny water!

#1 Post by GoneYakFishin » Sun Apr 19, 2015 8:11 pm

Hey fellas,
Me and a couple of mates from work are looking to get away for a few days and do some camping. I'm trying to find a place within 5 hours of Sydney to camp where we can do some fresh water fishing, ideally camping next to a little creek.. I'm the only one with a kayak so we would be land based fishing mostly. If anyone's got any ideas let me know! PM me if you don't want to publicly share your good spots :wink:

Not sure but there are a few good spots at bendeella (nowra) and along the kangaroo river/kangaroo valley - other options include (gradys) and coolendel. Better for yaks but you are able to do some sneaky trekking and find some really great feeder streams.

Stacks of possibilities at the Myall Lakes. NPWS has lots of details. http://www.nationalparks.nsw.gov.au/mya ... ional-park

Thanks Guys,
Tony I've spent a fair bit of time around Myall Lakes but never had much luck fishing unless I went back down into Hawks Nest... I generally spend my time on the Eastern side of the lake though so maybe I should explore up around the back more!

I've also been down to Kangaroo Valley on the yak and peddled deep into it, it was awesome there, loved the spot! Might have to get down there again and do some more exploring I think, sounds like it might be the best bet!

Cheers

I stayed at Gradys a few years ago and caught plenty of EPs right in front of my camp site.
