Off-shore quiet but the river provides

FISHING: An influx of the bait fish herring has meant a significant increase in quality flathead according to reports received by Matthew Planck from Swan Boat Hire.

News of jew fish and whiting are also trickling through especially in the upper reaches of the Noosa river systems.

A Noosa River Fishing Safari crew caught and released an 80cm flathead using a prawn bait.

There are also reports of quality whiting feeding in the lower river systems as well as trevally feeding on the top tide of the Noosa River mouth.

The scene is still quiet on the off-shore front as water temperatures remain at about 21 degrees but some reports of solid off-shore action have made their way from Double Island Point.

And if you are planning on going off-road this weekend, The Rainbow Beach tourist centre is advising some rocks at Mudlo are exposed, with the beach still accessible two hours either side of low tide.
