Whether you are a professional fisherman or just love to cast a line out, Dongara and Port Dension offers it all, from beach access to boating facilities suited to all sizes of boats and platform fishing from the groyne. 

Fishing with children is easy! Try your luck at either the recreational jetty next to the boat ramp or the fishing platform at Grannies Beach. You can catch a wide range of fish species including tailor, silver bream, sand whiting and herring.

For the more enthusiastic fisherman, venture out to the rock groyne at the Port Denison Marina and try your hand at catching some of the larger species including mulloway and pink snapper.
