Coomera River

Coomera is a blend of man made structure like jetties, pylons and bridges, and natural structure like mangrove and mud flats. Despite being one of the most heavily fished River’s in Queensland, the Commera River still produces some good fishing for Bream, Trevally, Whiting, Flathead, Cod and Mangrove Jack. The rare Jewfish also caught in the Coomera River.

Coomera River fishing spots are mostly only accessible by boat due to most of the river backing onto private property. However most the bridges, Paradise Point and undeveloped land still offers some good places for fishing the Coomera River.

Coomera River is one of the best Mangrove Jack fishing rivers in the South East Corner. Live bait of either Mullet or Herring near structure like bridges, pylons and rock bars works well for the Jacks in here. Lure fishing for Jack is very popular in the Coomera. Great fish are caught every summer, the key to success for luring jacks is, hard body minnow lures worked very close to structure in the shaded areas.

Flathead are caught year round, but they are in high numbers during Spring. They can be found around the drop offs and at the mouths of small feeder creeks on the run out tide.

Bream school up in the clear waters near the entrances during Winter. Search for deeper, clear waters to find them. This can make for some fantastic fishing on both baits and lures.

Mulloway lurk around the Coomera River, but they are a rare catch mainly reserved for the dedicated angler. The best times of the year to target them is the cooler months, find the bait and they will be around. The mullet spawn is probably the best to target Mulloway, this occurs around late May and June depending on the climate.

Coomera River Mouth

The mouth of the southern entrance has some good flats fishing for Bream on an incoming tide. During the outgoing tide this is a good spot to cast soft plastics for Flathead around the drop offs. There’s some reef in the deeper waters that hold Trevally and Bream at times.

Paradise Point

Good land based access to some good structure. The rock wall and jetties hold good bream at times. Mangrove Jack are also caught along the rock wall in Summer.

Paradise Point Canals

The canals offer almost endless structure in the form of jetties. There are some good fish in here, mainly good sized Bream. Mangrove Jack are also caught in the canals mainly in Summer.

Paradise Point Mud Flats

The mud flats and drop offs here produce good catches of flathead during the run out tide. On the incoming tide the flats here fish well for Whiting.

Jabiru Island

Good land based fishing access, the shallow waters on the north west side produce Whiting year round, in Summer they will take a surface lure. Under the western Bridge is a good spot to live bait for Mangrove Jack in Summer.

Coomera Feeder Creeks

The small feeder creeks thoughout the Coomera River produce flathead on soft plastics on an out going tide.

Coomera River Junction

The deeper water here has patchy reef that produces good Bream fishing at times. Bream tend to school up here during Winter. The drop offs here also produce good catches of flathead and Mangrove Jack. The jetties to the north just upstream are also known to produce jacks and bream.

Coomera River North Branch

Only accessible by boat, the north branch is fairly shallow, but still produces Bream, Whiting and Flathead. Fish the run out tide as the water runs off the flats for Flathead. On the incoming tide the same flats generally hold bream.

Wasp Creek Mouth

A popular spot to live bait for Mangrove Jack during Summer. During spring the run out tide is a good spot to cast soft plastics for Flathead.

Bullock Creek Bend

The west and east corners of the bend has some rocky structure that holds mostly Bream.

Foxwell Island

The canals to the south hold good Bream at times, working plastics or small hard body lures close to structure will produce fish. During Summer Mangrove Jack are also hooked in these canals. 

Gold Coast City Marina

The deep water and good structure here is home to some big Bream and Mangrove Jacks. Sinking soft plastics down into the depths in a good way to land some fish here. The odd Jewfish can show up mainly in the cooler months, and Trevally in spring through summer.

Saltwater Creek Rocks

The shallow rocks here attrack bream, flathead, Trevally and the odd mangrove jack. Best fished on the run out tide.

    Dead bait fish fo flathead is very effective in the coomera river. Bait I would use is mullet, herring and garfish.
