Fishing Up Near Byron Bay/ Brunswick River


Recommended Posts

hey guys

I am going up to Byron Bay for a week and I plan to do lots of fishing. I will be mainly fishing the beaches and the Brunswick River.

I need some locations on where some places are to get some flatties, bream and whiting. I will also do a lot of breakwall fishing for jewies so local baits to use and rigs would be helpful as well.

Thanks and all the best for your holidays

I can't remember what the beach is called, but the 1 with the ship wreck + main street of byron, where the caravan park is on the beach. Just infront of the caravan park is a small rocky outcrop, you can't fish from that outcrop towards the lighthouse side.

$750 fine copped by the people in the site next to us :wife:

I fished with Jewhunter when up Brunswick River last year - will you have access to a boat? Grant got busted off by a big fish fishing The bridge pylons below the highway.

Should be plenty of blackies around the rock walls along the river side there & the marina (nice little wall jutting into the marina from the caravan park.) I caught some flatties there with sps.

Good luck!
