If you wish to fish from the rocks at Orokawa Scenic Reserve, be aware that the coastline can be dangerous, particularly during rough conditions. Several people have died while fishing near Homunga Bay.

Help stay safe when rock fishing by:

  • Always wearing a life jacket
  • Not fishing in exposed areas during rough or large seas (check swell and tide information before you go)
  • Observing sea conditions before you fish and never choosing areas that are wet (waves have likely been washing over them)
  • Never turning your back on the sea
  • Following all warning signs
