Sun and Moon
The sun will be at it's highest point at 11:56 am. Today we have 12:8 hours of daylight. For shallow water fishing the twilight periods are often the most productive fishing times, especially on days when a major or minor time will coincide with twilight. In low light conditions predators have better cover for their ambush and often hunt in shallow water.

We can compare the current moon distance to it's minimum and maximum distance from earth and express that as proximity. A high proximity means the moon is closer to earth. At 50% it would be at it's mean distance. A high proximity causes big tides, currents and has a direct effect on increased bite times. A proximity greater than 90% indicates a super moon.

7 Day Fishing Weather
The weather plays an important role in fishing. Wind strenght and direction often determine where you can fish and where fish might be holding. Although high pressure is usually good for fishing, steep pressure changes often trigger feeding frenzies and are great times for fishing. Of course temperature has also a strong effect on fishing and comfort on the water. So make sure to cross check the weather forecast with the solunar fishing times to determine the best times to go fishing.

Best Fishing Spots in the greater Canberra area

Wharf's or Jetties are good places to wet a line and meet other fishermen. They often produce a fresh feed of fish and are also great to catch bait fish. As they are often well lit, they also provide a good opportunity for night fishing. There are 3 wharf(s) in this area.

Regatta Point Jetty - 1km , National Library Jetty - 1km , High Court Jetty - 2km

Beaches and Bays are ideal places for land-based fishing. If the beach is shallow and the water is clear then twilight times are usually the best times, especially when they coincide with a major or minor fishing time. Often the points on either side of a beach are the best spots. Or if the beach is large then look for irregularities in the breaking waves, indicating sandbanks and holes. We found 15 beaches and bays in this area.

Lotus Bay - 2km , Yarralumla Bay - 3km , Orana Bay - 3km , Nursery Bay - 4km , Sylvia Curley Bridge - 5km , Bimbi Beach - 8km , Nengi Bamir Beach - 8km , Dulwa Beach - 8km , Bargang Beach - 8km , Gummiuk Beach - 8km , Yerra Beach - 9km , Tuggeranong Town Park Beach - 15km , Mundang Beach - 15km , Ngadyung Beach - 15km , Nguru Beach - 15km
