This post is a small part taken from our Fishing Werribee River Entrance Getfished Article.
The Werribee South Beach extends from the river mouth north to the rock wall at Wyndham Harbour.
The beaches to the south are off-limits due to Melbourne Water boards usage.
A beach rod of around 10 foot is ideal. Fishing light though, unless you need the weight because of the wind. So keep those sinker as light as you can, without sacrificing casting distance.
Note that it can get busy in the summertime. In fact, it can get pretty busy on nice summer days towards evening. It’s a popular spot for families, not just fisho’s.
A lot of small boats and kayakers fish just off the shore here. Conditions can be perfect at times. Like glass. But be wary of onshore winds if you’re in a yak or small boat.
It can get choppy fast and the winds blowing from the west (onshore) can make returning to land difficult. Not to mention the river mouth’s white caps in these conditions. While it is dredged there can be minor “bar” conditions at times.
Smaller boat and kayak fisho’s target flathead and pinky snapperPinky Snapper The name "Pinky Snapper" refers to the immature Snapper. Their skin colour is different from adults (its pinker.)
Adulthood is usually considered on fish greater than 40cm - or in the 1.5 to 2kg - range, with a darker red colouration.. With some scoring some pretty good calamari in the offshore sea grasses.
Campbells Cove is only a short distance away by boat and is a popular fishing spot for boaties and kayak fishing. Campbells Cove is located to the north of Werribee South Beach and extends to the RAAF base (check conditions for off limit areas, especially if accessing by land.)
