|Excellent all-weather and all tides ramps for boat launching and retrieval are provided at Tarwin Lower, Venus Bay, Toora, Port Welshpool and Port Albert.|
Shore based fishing depends heavily on land access the most popular spots are the jetties at Tarwin Lower, Venus Bay, Port Franklin, (near Foster) Port Welshpool, Port Albert.
Small fishing settlement approx 15km from Foster is a port for boats to enter Corner Inlet along the Franklin River. Local families who still live in the town have fished the Inlet for generations. The Cripps family have a fresh fish shop on the wharf. Or take a line and fish from the jetty near the Co-Op.
Large inlet off Bass Strait has many secluded beaches with foot access only. Great fishing. Launch your boat from 24 hour concrete all tides ramp at Port Welshpool.
