Yorke Peninsula Fishing Guide : 2016 Guide
5 yorkepeninsula.com.au end beaches and it is easy to appreciate why Yorke Peninsula appeals to such a broad cross section of recreational anglers. As is the case right around the South Australian coast, seasons and associated weather fluctuations play a significant role in what the Peninsula has to offer the visiting angler. In summer, when south-easterly winds dominate, it’s the beaches and jetties of the western shoreline that offer protected fishing. The reverse applies in winter months and during autumn, when the winds are lightest and most predictable, it’s simply a matter of selecting the type of fish you’re after and going for it. All up, Yorke Peninsula has 15 jetties open to recreational anglers. Some run into quite deep water, while a couple are close to dry around low tide, but they all produce good fishing at one time or another. These piers are the life blood of many coastal towns and are safe for anglers of all ages and well maintained by local councils. The same applies to boat launching facilities; it’s no longer a problem to find a modern, all-tide ramp near a productive fishing area. Some have fish cleaning and wash down facilities and most have dual lanes, floating boarding pontoons and spacious, secure car parks. It’s safe to say Yorke Peninsula is one of Australia’s most appealing, accessible and affordable venues for an angling-based holiday. Whether you are a dyed-in-the-wool offshore fishing fanatic or simply like to drop a bait from the jetty, there are few locations nationwide that can offer as much in such a compact package.
