Noosa River Weekly Fishing and Crab Report

Cloe was stoked to land this nice flathead when coming down from Maryborough to join a Noosa Fishing and Crab Adventure.


Fishing was hot and cold this week with the main hot spots before the river mouth, the frying pan and Woods Bay with tailor, flathead and whiting the main fish with the odd large bream starting to come in.

The best successes have come two hours each side of the high tide and pilchards, lures and mullet strips are working well on larger varieties. If targeting whiting and bream, live worms and yabbies being taken and try the shallows and sandflats off Munna Beach, Noosaville stretches and opposite Makepeace Island. Working around the structures throughout the river with mullet strips should give some rewards also.

Despite the water getting cooler there are still some mangrove jacks on the prowl at night and jewfish mainly in the deeper holes and structures at the back of Noosa Sound, Weyba Creek, the Marina and up between the top two lakes.

It’s worth dropping in a crab pot too as lots of sand crabs are active around the Frying Pan, Woods Bay and Weyba Creek.

With just a possible shower most days this week and warm calm  conditions, it looks like being a good time to enjoy a spot of fishing.

Until next week good luck from the guys at Noosa Fishing and Crab Adventures
