The Warmies is considered to be one of the finest spots for fishing in Melbourne, by many.
While it’s technically in the suburb of Newport it’s often referred to as Williamstown.
That’s probably because of the proximity to the Williamstown boat ramp.
I originally rated it a 1-star fishing spot due to the pollution in the waters feeding into the area.
However, I’ve changed this, because it certainly produces a lot of fish.
I have decided 5 stars and recommend you practice Catch and Release.
I love fishing the Warmies. It’s can be one of Melbourne’s great fishing spots for land-based anglers.
While eating fish from the Warmies is considered safe for the most part there are EPA recommendations on how much. This is due to heavy metals and other toxins pumped out by industry historically – and more recently some severe, illegal spills in the waterways feeding the Yarra/Maribyrnong system.
