I usually manage to get a good feed up near belongil creek using plastics.

I don't know about rock fishing though.

Try just north of belongil creek in the gutters there for consistent catches of flathead especially, but you'll get all the other usual suspects too.

To get there drive to the golf course, park where the road runs out, then cut across the course and stroll down to the beach. This route brings you out right next to the creek, walk left from there and good luck.

I lived in byron for 9 months or so and did a fair bit of rock and beach fishing....great place and great fishing... Many rock spots between Belongil and Tallows are off limits due to the marine park however you can fish the point under the lighthouse for stud tailor and jewies. Further afield is the magnificent and untouched broken head with many great spots like whites beach and jewfish point (whiting, bream, flathead, tailor, jewies). Have a great trip mate and sink a couple for me at the beach hotel ok...cheers
