Fraser Coast Amazing Fishing Trails

Hervey Bay, Fraser Coast Area

Whether you are seeking the adrenalin rush of reeling in a marlin on a game fishing boat - or that relaxed feeling of having your line in the river as you drink a beer at sunset, the Fraser Coast is the ultimate fishing destination. There are several north facing beaches that are protected by prevailing winds between Burrum Heads to Poona where you can try your luck. Fraser Island is considered the holy grail of beach fishing and the island flats are popular with fly fishers. The deep gutters and channels of the Great Sandy Strait and the mangrove-lined creeks found throughout the region make the Fraser Coast a breeding ground for a vast array of fish species including coral trout, bream, whiting, flathead, mackerel, tailor and mangrove jack, along with sand and mud crabs. Another popular spot for fishing enthusiasts is Lenthalls Dam, stocked with bass, barramundi, yellow-belly and silver perch.
