Eden Activities & Attractions
For the rod and line fisherman and kids, great opportunities to land a decent fish from the main wharf at Snug Cove, or try your luck from the many surf beaches. For your own safety be aware of tide movements and do not fish from rocks unless you are experienced. Eden has some of the best game fishing on the coast with charter boats available to take you out after the big ones. The game fishing season starts in November and runs through to the end of July.
The following locations are just a few places recommended to try your luck with rod and reel:
Many a rewarding hour can be spent by the family fisher folk at Snug Cove wharves.
To the delight of all ages, yellowtail, mackerel and trevally will always keep mum and dad occupied baiting hooks and casting lines.
Pulpit Rocks at Green Cape
A great spot for land based, dedicated fishermen. Pack a picnic lunch and spend the day. Reached by a 40km scenic road (unsealed but well cared for), this location is well inside the boundariesof Ben Boyd National Park.
Kiah River Mouth
Anglers using live nippers may catch luderick or whiting at this popular beach fishing spot.
On the outskirts of the township, Aslings Beach is ideal during late evening for salmon.
Other popular fishing holes are at
Haycock and Peninsular beaches in Ben Boyd National Park to the North and Saltwater and Bittangabee beaches to the South.
Situated 30km south of Eden, Wonboyn Lake is a versatile lake system and is a mecca for dusky flathead. Moon phases and conditions vary the movement of fish so it's best to seek local advice from bait and tackle shops.
Baycliff, the ocean entrance to Wonboyn Lake, is a top spot for salmon and taylor.
Quarantine Bay is well known for its superb multi-ramp boat launching facilities, but for the holidaymaker without a vessel, this picturesque location is well worth a visit. Situated 3km south of Eden, (Melb side) just off the Princes Highway, Quarantine Bay provides picnic and swimming facilities and the most spectacular outlook. Picnic tables have been placed beneath shady eucalypts adjacent to the fishing club.
Yachts and pleasure craft are moored in the deep waters of the bay, creating an idyllic atmosphere. * Front Page Picture
