Ten minutes south of Jervis Bay is St Georges Basin, often called the jewel in the crown of South Coast estuary fishing. The Basin offers consistent catches of flathead, bream and tailor and has excellent boating facilities. Other Shoalhaven fishing highlights are at Lake Conjola, Ulladulla and Burrill Lake.
The Shoalhaven region is a fishermen's paradise with a wide range of excellent fishing locations to choose from and all classes of anglers catered for. If you really enjoy fishing, you'll find every type of fishing on offer from freshwater dams, rivers and lakes to open ocean game fishing.
Boat-based fishers in the Shoalhaven are likely to be rewarded with an amazing catch including marlin, tuna, kingfish, snapper, morwong, and flathead. In the region's estuaries, there's every opportunity to catch bream, flathead, whiting, tailor, luderick and crabs while freshwater enthusiasts should head to Tallowa Dam, Danjera Dam and the upper Shoalhaven River to explore and fish.
Jervis Bay is one of the most popular fishing spots on the South Coast. This dedicated marine park ensures the conservation of marine habitats and species while allowing recreational fishers plenty to enjoy. The rock platforms on the northern side of the bay are world famous for the land-based game fishing opportunities they offer for species such as marlin, tuna and kingfish. Inside the bay, chase the bream, whiting and flathead from almost any of the beaches. There are several boat ramps around the bay as well as experienced local fishing operators who offer great fishing adventures in and around the bay.
When fishing in NSW freshwater and saltwater, you are required by law to pay the NSW recreational fishing fee. This applies when spear fishing, hand lining, hand gathering, trapping, bait collecting and prawn netting or when in possession of fishing gear in, on or adjacent to waters.

Swimming safety information
NSW has a wide range of wonderful swimming options from beaches, ocean pools, harbourside pools, lakes, rivers or swimming holes at the bottom of waterfalls. However to ensure maximum safety and enjoyment, swimmers should follow this general advice:
Look for patrolled beaches (this is where lifesavers are on duty you will see red and yellow flags that indicate this). You should always swim between the red and yellow flags as they mark the safest place to swim.
Never swim alone at night, or under the influence of alcohol, or directly after a meal.
Always check water depth before diving in as rocks or trees could be submerged and never run and dive into the water from the beach.
Check for signs regarding advice on water conditions at your chosen swimming spot and at any natural swimming hole. Always proceed with caution as surfaces could be slippery and water conditions may not be immediately apparent; particularly if the areas has recently experienced heavy rainfalls or flooding.
