Fishing in Gerroa has plenty of rewards

With its ideal positioning on the banks of the Crooked River and with easy access to great beaches, Gerroa makes the ideal fishing destination. The team at Discovery Holiday Parks – Gerroa has the latest news for anglers looking to try their luck in the area.

Gerroa’s wonderful positioning allows for a memorable fishing experience.

All year round, fishing in Gerroa has its rewards and offers plenty of versatility. There is a wealth of superb spots that reliably tempt fish.

We believe both the Shoalhaven and Seven Mile estuaries are some of the best fishing spots around, while Seven Mile and Little beaches are other great options to cast a line. Meanwhile, Black Head Reserve provides solid rock fishing opportunities for experienced anglers.

During the cooler months, it is the season for black fish (luderick). Reliably they are caught in the Crooked River on green weed.

When there are big rains they open up the estuaries, meaning there is ample opportunity to catch flathead and mullet hanging around as the water warms up.

When trying your luck, lures and fresh/live bait are your best bet. However, if you don’t have the time to prepare, frozen baits are sold at Discovery Holiday Parks – Gerroa.

And we’re always happy to point you in the right direction when you want to go fishing in Gerroa and its surrounds.

Gerroa is an ideal base for exploring the many delights of the Illawarra region. This area blends astounding coastal scenery with alluring rainforest and other enthralling natural attractions. From our park you can easily reach the Sir Charles Kingsford Smith Memorial Lookout, which serves up brilliant coastal views.

We look forward to seeing you at Discovery Holiday Parks – Gerroa soon.
