Fishing on Sydney’s wharves


SYDNEY Harbour is justifiably famous for offering outstanding land-based sportfishing for a range of key species including kingfish, mulloway, bream and salmon. And this coming summer fishing season looks like it will be a cracker, with good reports of kings already starting to filter through.

NSW DPI Fisheries staff have been out and about at Walsh Bay and a number of ferry wharves recently, talking with anglers and providing info and advice.

Over coming months, Fisheries staff and Fishcare volunteers will be undertaking regular visits to key land-based fishing sites to provide advisory material and listen to your comments and concerns.

As the season progresses, NSW DPI would like to remind anglers to do their bit to help maintain access to these fantastic shared facilities by following these basic rules:

  •  Keep the noise down (especially at night).
  •  Pick up your rubbish and keep things neat and tidy.
  •  Clear your lines when ferries approach the wharf.
  • Obey all Fisheries bag and size limits.
  • Treat commuters, ferry workers and residents with respect and courtesy.
