Fishing Broken Bay, Pittwater, Cowan Creek, and the Hawkesbury River

Flint and Steel Point
Broken Bay offers an astonishing number of sites for offshore, protected bays, and river fishing.

Within these primary fishing zones you can bottom fish, drift fish, or troll for a wide range of species from marlin to squid. The great spots to fish are legend.

You can spend years exploring the natural wealth and beauty of these waterways.

Few places in Australia offer such immediate access to good offshore fishing grounds. Within minutes of leaving the dock you're out the heads - no bar to worry about.

If you feel like a break you can run back into a protected bay for lunch and then go straight back out again.

You can also plan your fishing trip a long time in advance because no matter what the weather is doing you can find a good place to fish. If it's blowing hard, you can fish the Hawkesbury River or Cowan waters and if the weather is fine you can move offshore in a matter of minutes - and escape back into protected waters should the weather take a turn for the worse.
