Narooma is one of New South Wales’ great fishing holiday towns, with sea access for trailerboaters, and several good estuaries nearby.
Narooma is the gateway to Montague Island, with gamefish such as yellowfin tuna and marlin caught in this area, as well as kingfish and snapper.
If fishing the island note that there are marine sanctuary zones, part of the Batemans Marine Park which encompasses this region.
Narooma Bar can be hazardous and should be used only in good conditions.
The entrance rock walls produce big mulloway, bream, salmon and tailor, but the tide rips through and the rocks are large, making fishing difficult.
The local beach fishing is good with salmon and tailor at the main beach can be good, which is located near the local golf course.
There is rock fishing also, with kingfish and more.
When it is rough outside, Wagonga Inlet has quality bream, luderick, whiting and flathead.
The long rock walls hold quality luderick. Bream fishos should try driving around the lake, as there are many fishable jetties.
Footpaths near the mouth fish well for salmon and trevally on an incoming tide, and the area around the bridge is good for big flathead and summer.
Try near the sand boat ramp early in the morning during the week when boat traffic is low.
West of the bridge, near Narooma Quata Park, bream, flathead and mulloway are caught.
Wagonga Head has mainly salmon, tailor, bream and luderick.
The beach alongside Surf Beach Holiday Park has salmon, flathead and bream. The mouth of Little Creek has bream. Try morning and late afternoon.
Other beaches and headlands can be seen here.
Dark nights (no moon) in summer are best for Wagonga prawns, and mulloway often run with them at the lake mouth.
Offshore there are winter and summer snapper runs, with winter fish coming closer inshore.
