Fishing opportunities at Burrum Heads are only limited by the desires of the angler. You can fish off shore or explore the river systems which feed into the Burrum River catchment such as the Gregory, Isis, and Cherwell Rivers, all offering a diverse bounty of fishing experiences.
The Burrum River is famous for the diversity of both pelagic and bottom feeding fish which inhabit the river system. Bream and huge whiting are in the river all year with flathead, mackerel, cobia, snapper and Jew fish to name just a few are regularly taken from the beach right in front of the town.
Upstream from Burrum Heads, are a system of mangrove islands surrounded by immense sand and mud flats with an extensive system of gutters running through. Yabbie banks are also prolific here and along with herring and mullet being the preferred bait of the locals when targeting grunter, mangrove jacks, and cod.
