Williamstown, located on Port Phillip Bay right near the mouth of the Yarra River.
It offers a wealth of piers and fishing opportunities right next door to the heart of Melbourne, the capital of Victoria, Australia.
Williamstown Pier, Anne Stree Pier and Gem Peer fishing see species such as Pinkie Snapper, Snapper and Flathead right in close to the city. Not to mention the Bream.
Upstream from the mouth of the Yarra River, the Maribyrnong River flows into the Yarra. This provides a significant estuary with excellent flows and a variety of fish species - including mulloway.
As Williamstown is partially composed of industrial and marine industries some areas, particularly the naval dockyard area.
Williamstown pier is a great fishing spot for people in the west or inner city, but I find it's not that near me to make it a personal favourite. Having said that - don't let my northeastern suburbs location put you off!
