Queenscliff is a tourist hotspot on the Bellarine region of Port Philip Bay. It is also a fishing mecca as well.

From the club rooms allow a couple of hrs to get to the township. Weíll meet at the boat ramp at Queenscliff Harbour which is off the roundabout on Symonds Street. Low tide is at 10:00 so plan to get the ramp at 8.

For land based anglers there are good options at the mouth of the Bawon River around the beach and rock wall near the ferry terminal.  Further around in 
Queenscliff there is access to the beach and shore line reef complex (Shortland Bluff) that is exposed at low tide.  For the boaties the Barwon River, its mouth and Queenscliff reef are great options.


Trevally are the primary target for this trip however there are a number of other species that will take a fly.  Salmon and even snapper have been taken by club members in recent outing to the area. And good size bream are on the list.


A small (size 1/0) closer in chartreuse and orange is a proven fish taker in this area, fished on a sinking or intermediate line with small sharp strips will usually elicit a strike and fish. A weighted squirmy wormy fished along the weed beds is also a chance of taking a KG whiting too.
