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.
