Guilderton is a small sleepy town 135km north of Perth, at the mouth of the Moore River. There are 2 options for Guilderton fishing, the beaches or the Moore River. The Moore River produces mainly smaller Black Bream, further upstream is a good place to fish for large bream on small hard body lures. The beach fishing around Guilderton produces Herring, Whiting, Tailor and the odd Mulloway.
The beach fishing around Guilderton produces Herring, Whiting, Tailor and the odd Mulloway. The best place to start fishing is either north or south of the Moore River mouth. To the south of Guilderton is a maze of 4wd tracks that lead beaches with good gutters and reefy patches. South Guilderton beaches provide good fishing early morning and late afternoon for Tailor around the reefs. Mulloway also turn up and are best fished at night.
To the North of Guilderton along Forrester Road is a nice reefy outcrop with a deeper gutter. Here you can fish for Herring, Whiting and Tailor at dawn and dusk. Heading further north a 4wd is required, but there is plenty of remote fishing spots to try out. Most the gutters, reef patches and small rocky out crops produce Herring and Tailor.
The mouth of the Moore River when it is open to the ocean is a good place to fishing for Herring and the odd mulloway. Target the dirty water line with metal slugs and shallow medium size hard body lures for Herring. Vibes and soft plastics bounced off the bottom through the dirty water can work well for Mulloway.
The Moore River is a fairly shallow river system and is cut off from the ocean for most of the year. The river is best fished from a kayak or boat, however there are several land based access points for the shore angler. There are many drop offs throughout the river, try fishing the deeper water here, although a sounder is required. When the mouth of the river is closed, upstream has the best fishing spots for large black bream. Casting around the timber snags and any structure with small hard body minnows. The numerous rock walls can also be productive for Black Bream.
