Schulz Canal, Brisbane

Schulz Canal is a man-made waterway in Brisbane’s Moreton Bay that leads upstream to Kedron Brook.

The entrance to Schulz Canal is through muddy sandflat. It is a great spot for sand whiting, with easy access along the western shore from the Nudgee Beach road.

The area out the front where wave action meets the channel edges is usually the best spot, but whiting can be caught on the flat itself and along the canal edges.

Use tiny fresh baits of worm or small pieces of frozen prawn.

Flathead can be caught along the canal edges, and livebait works best.

Other local species include bream, catfish, pikey eels and stingrays. Small jewfish and threadfin salmon are a chance.

There are prawns in season.

Whiting are best in summer and bream in winter.

The concrete boat ramp on the western bank has a large parking area.

The upper freshwater section of the canal around suburban Kedron has tilapia, eels and mullet.

The canal runs through Toombul shopping centre carpark, where it is slightly tidal, and it can flood the carpark during major rain events.
