Rivers and coastal creeks

Whitsunday Times - - FISHING -

PROSER­PINE River has had great num­bers of crabs mov­ing with the big tides and re­cent flood­wa­ters.

As for fish­ing in the Proser­pine River, I haven’t heard of much apart from a few an­glers catch­ing bar­ra­mundi in the up­per reaches of the river as the river is in flood.

Coastal creeks around Air­lie Beach have been the place to have a fish with great num­bers of man­grove jack bit­ing well in all of the coastal creeks with an­glers re­port­ing them hit­ting lures and dead baits.

An­glers have also been catch­ing a few bar­ra­mundi in the coastal creeks and flat­head around the mouths of the creeks. Shin­g­ley Beach has been fish­ing well with good size whit­ing and flat­head be­ing caught off the beach on the run-in tide.
