Fishing

Updated: 23-Oct-2015

Fishing - Free Activity

Many local people fish on the main Whiteboat finger of the Cairns Marina near the Salthouse restaurant.

They also fish off the beach at the Southern end of the beach at Machans Beach where the Barron River meets the ocean. 

The old bridge at Stratford on the Barron River is also a popular spot. 

These are all land based locations where you can catch fish. 

People also fish off the rock wall at Yorkeys Knob.  

 

For local knowledge call into the local bait & tackle stores or take a fishing tour.  Fishing tours offer estuary, reef and marlin fishing. 

We have Bradsfords Fishing Tackle shop and also Tackle World here in Cairns.
