Wallaga Lake is a deep lake, sometimes up to 10 metres and makes an easier boating destination than the nearby Bermagui river.

Throughout the lake, you will find dusky flathead (especially in the warmer months) along with bream, trevally, tailor, salmon, and large numbers of garfish.

A large quantity of fish have moved into the lakes recently due to the large rainfall, and are steadily increasing in numbers from the bridge to the entrance over the sand flats.

Lures, worms and prawns are best used with areas adjacent to any rocky point along the edges of the weed beds.

Best time of day is when the river is rising, usually early in the morning.

Plenty of octopuses can be found fossicking the shallows of Wallaga Lake.
