During Summer the pelagic’s fire up, Golden Trevally and the odd Mackerel and Tuna show up.

Offshore Noosa has some great shoals and reefs only a few kilometers offshore, however the bar crossing at Noosa River mouth can be difficult.

Noosa River Fishing

Double Island Point

Access to fish here is via four wheel drive only. Double Island Point is a great refuge for bait fish seeking shelter. It’s the only headland between Noosa River mouth and inskip point, therefore it is a great spot for fishing. Jewfish can be targeted at night, they are most abundant during the cooler months, there is generally at least 2 jewfish swimming along the point. During Summer it is not uncommon to find pelagics like Golden Trevally, School Mackerel, Longtail Tuna and even the odd Cobia around headland. Land based access along the rocks is fairly easy but remember to fish only in good conditions.

Teewah Beach

Teewah Beach stretches for roughly 50km. Drive along the beach and look for deep gutters for the best fishing. In Winter Tailor are the main targeted species. Jewfish will also turn up in the deeper gutters particularly at night. During Summer pelagics can come in close to shore. Golden Trevally, Mackerel and Tuna are caught during the Summer. For the rest of the year, Tarwhine and Dart the main catch long the beach.

Noosa North Shore

The northshore provides access to the Noosa River mouth, here anglers can target Flathead, Bream and Dart. North Shore is a a popular spot in Winter for Tailor.

Noosa Groyne

Close to town, the Groyne Beach has Bream, Flathead and Dart. The odd Tailor in Winter.

Little Cove, Tea Tree Bay & Granite Bay

For some reason the bays and headlands of the Noosa National Park aren’t fished very often. The long walk out to the points is a possible reason. The fishing along the bays and headlands can produce Bream, Flathead, Whiting and Dart throughout the year. Mulloway and Tailor are also caught particularly late afternoons from Winter to late Spring.

Alexandria Bay

The long walk to Alexandria Bay means it is rarely fished. However the effort may well be worth it, anglers can expect Bream, Flathead, Whiting, Tailor and Dart. There is generally always some good gutters to choose from.

Paradise Caves / Sunshine Beach Headland

A easy accessed fishing spot with good rock platforms provide access to deeper waters. At dawn and dusk is the best time to target larger fish here including Mulloway and Tailor in the cooler months. Year round anglers can expect Bream, Dart and Flathead.

Sunshine Beach

Sunshine Beach to Coolum stretches approximate 14km. During the cooler months is a good time to target Tailor and Mulloway at dawn and dusk. Dirty water from creek runoffs is a good place to try for Mulloway and Tailor. Throughout the year Bream, Flathead, Whiting and Dart are regularly catches along Sunshine Beach.
