The Georges River is a popular fishing site, and it flows into the rich fishing grounds of Botany Bay. In 2001, Botany Bay was declared closed to commercial fishing, and it is now a dedicated recreational fishing ground.
The Georges River is famous for its winter runs of yellow-finned bream. Other species targeted by local anglers include luderick, mullet and mulloway.
There is information on minimum sizes for the various fish species at the boat ramp at Morgans Creek.
If you're going fishing anywhere in the park, you'll need a fishing licence. Get more details from the NSW Fisheries website.
