Rockhampton Fitzroy River Fishing Dawn Family

Rockhampton Region prides itself on catering to recreational anglers from across Queensland and Australia, providing excellent launching facilities.

There are many productive fishing areas throughout the river. However, surprisingly to some, one of the most productive areas is the city reach, down to Devils Elbow. This part of the river has plenty or rock structure located right in the city limits (hence the name Rockhampton) that hold barramundi all year round, while the threadfin move there whenever the conditions are suitable.

The Fitzroy Delta accessible by Port Alma is also popular, with Balaclava Island, Raglan Creek, Inkerman Creek, Casuarina Creek and Connor Creek all fishing well at times. This area is a little harder to fish, due to more limited structure. However, with modern fish finders (sounders), there’s really no place for the fish to hide!
