    Went down a while ago when the water was stupidly dirty. Pumped some yabbies in simpsons creek just past the footbridge i think then brought soaked them in some shallow stuff in the main river. Tough fishing with the water so dirty, but got a couple of good ones.

    I'm keen to find out too Volvo as I'm heading down in my van and taking the boat sometime later this year to explore this area too, its a great spot and when the river is clean it appears it should fish well??

    I reckon without a doubt. Would be flathead central when they're chewing too- lots of good sandbanks.

    Arr the ol Brunswick heads....

    spent many a holidays down there staying at the massy green caravan park...

    Before they made the north arm a green zone, in behind the wall that's opposite the caravan park was a great spot for whiting. two guys that I got to know down there would take off up the river, be gone for most of the day , come back covered from head to toe in mud from digging blood worms. they had a few spots that they would target and come home with a feed and a half of 40+cm tings every time.

    the biggest flat ones ive ever seen in the flesh came from the main channel off the memorial wall using herring.

    and jacks.......jack central.

    use herring which you have to catch with jigs as cast nets are a no go in NSW.

    Fish around the end of the spur wall on a run in tide, see pic.Attachment 113848Attachment 113849
