Hi Martin,

Welcome to Fishing Reminder.

You done better than me. I just fished 2 days on the far upper Shoalhaven river and all I got was 4 carp of about 6 inches.

Interesting how far up the Shoalhaven ? I am new to BOMADERRY, have a small boat but have not had time to get out. When you say CARP would that be in more fresh than salt ?

Oallen Ford. About 1 1/2 hours from Bomaderry.

Carp as in European carp.



My camp was very basic. I was only passing through but ended up going back the next day. So spent 2 nights there.



View of the river from the camp site. That far inland is all fresh water.



The dog drinks it !!

Thanks for that, OK I know where it is now. I used to do surveys up that way and well past there for different geological outfits when i was flying helicopters, fab country. Wish I had one now to be able to just drop in where ever. For these days I stick to the 'salt' more reliable and can't handle the earthy taste from fresh water fish.

You are welcome.

Are you using the boat ramp on the northern side? If so, drive to the end (I think it is called Fairway Dr) to the golf club, go through the car park and at the end are steps leading down to a small beach. There is plenty of parking outside the car park. You will pick up good bream and flathead off that little beach...and most of the time you will have the beach to yourself

The cliffs opposite the golf club appears to be good I have never fished the cliffs but you see plenty of boats along there.

At the top just before Fairway Dr is a little park with BBQ and toilets. Walk down the path under the bridge...Now, I have not fished under the bridge for maybe 25 years...but there is a flatish rock ledge. Live bait off that rock for some really good dew

I saw that the restaurant at the southern end has been demolished !!...I applied for a job cooking there once. Anyway, about 3 or 4 years ago a baby great white was caught (or trapped in a rock pool) right there at the restraurant. It was about 3 or 4 foot in size.

That is enough tips to get you going on your door step...Then you can head East to Greenwell Point and Orient Point.
