06 Jan Noosa River Weekly Fishing Report
Jenny from Melbourne landed this awesome 1meter long threadfin salmon which certainly was a lot more than she hoped for on the Noosa Fishing and Crab Adventure tour last Sunday. Drop in and see the guys at O Boat Hire to get the latest tips and best spots to try.
Fishing has been patchy over the holidays with the lower reaches a bit slow caused by a lot of boating activity and clear water however there has been some good fish landed also. The river mouth has flathead, bream and some trevally whilst the Frying Pan, dog beach and Woods Point are good for a few whiting, bream and flathead and odd trevally. The top of each tide is best the fishing too.
The back of Noosa Sound and Weyba Creek is always worth a go for estuary cod, flathead and some mangrove jack but generally after dark. Noosaville has whiting and flathead on the sand flats and bream in the deeper parts with live worms or yabbies the best bait. Up past the ski run and opposite Makepeace Island the go is whiting, bream and flathead also and the odd good threadfin salmon on the prowl.
Lake Cooroibah entrances are fishing well with grunter bream, whiting and flathead and drift some livies or white bait for jacks and school jew.
There are always a variety of other fish like tripod, pony fish, tarwhine., tarpon, chopper tailor and sooty grunters to name a few that show how healthy our river system is. There are a few sand and mud crabs on the move to so drop in a pot.
The weather is clearing up with only a possible shower about and some warm days ahead so don’t forget to slip, slop, slap and look out for fellow boaties.
Until next week good luck from the guys at O Boat Hire.
