Eden is a hive of activity over the Summer with good fishing in the estuaries, off the beaches and in the ocean.
With all the visitors, Eden has plenty to offer. Out-of-the-way beaches and rivers assure that people can still get away and find somewhere to spend the day with very few others around.
In Ben Boyd National Park there are numerous tracks to the beach, giving access to some great beach fishing, while Haycock Point is a good rock fishing destination.
Salmon are always regular visitors to the beaches and rocky headlands, along with yellowfin bream, whiting and gummy sharks.
Some of the little beaches inside Twofold Bay are regular providers of jewfish, with anglers fishing the full moon into the night often rewarded.
Anglers fishing the rocks for drummer, blackfish and snapper have plenty of options along North Head and South Head, with good land-based gamefishing spots out around Green Cape.
Over the years plenty of good kingfish, tuna and even marlin have been caught from the rocks at Green Cape, with angers often using balloons to get their baits out of the rocks.
Sand flathead have been on the bite with boats catching fish on the known drift areas off Eden. Out a bit wider, tiger flathead are also being caught.
The inshore reefs have been fishing well with snapper, morwong and leatherjackets making up the catches.
Summer is often a windy time so get out there early to catch a feed of fish and be back before the wind starts to howl.
Out wider along the continental shelf, yellowfin tuna are being caught along with the odd striped marlin. The marlin fishing should pick up over coming months.
The estuaries have been fishing well with plenty of anglers at Wonboyn reporting good bream, flathead and whiting.
The floods earlier in the year have been good for the estuaries with improved tidal flow a benefit to the rivers.
Wonboyn’s surrounding beaches offer some great fishing potential for all the usual species and offshore in Disaster Bay is some of the best flathead fishing in the area.Reads: 5066
