21 Apr Noosa River Weekly Fishing Report
The river has seen lots of bream ranging in size up to 36cm, around several structures such as the Sofitel Bridge and sound bridge. Prawns and worms are the best baits when targeting bream although they will eat just about anything. There have been some ripper flathead caught this week anywhere between Tewantin and Makepeace Island. Soft plastics are the best form of fishing when targeting flathead although mullet gut has been producing results as well. There has been several reports of both golden and silver trevally amongst the waterways mainly in the stretch from the Sheraton bridge to the boat house, with live baits such as herring and mullet being the preferred baits. The river mouth about an hour after high tide has been a highlight spot with several reports of flathead, jewfish, trevally and bream caught. There has been some great reports of sand crabs in the top end of the river around the entrance to Weyba Creek. Whole mullet are the best bait when targeting sand crabs. The river is clear again and the sun is shining there is no better time to get out on the water!
