Fishery Bay Surf Guide

Fishery Bay in Eyre Peninsula is a reasonably exposed beach break that only works once in a while with no particular seasonal pattern. Works best in offshore winds from the northwest and there is no shelter here from cross shore breezes. Tends to receive distant groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the south. There is no beach break and in addition there are both left and right reef breaks. Good surf at all stages of the tide. An uncrowded break, even when it is working.
