Following the floods, the upper reaches of the Fitzroy aren't that fishable, but the bottom section from Thompsons Point down is definitely worth a try. There are plenty of crabs, along with threadfin and barra. There are still plenty of barra around the place wherever you can find some freshwater running into the salt.

Currumbin Creek and the Port Alma area are both definitely fishable. The Causeway Lake is still good for flathead, bream, whiting and barra, and it's pretty much the same deal at Corio Bay, closer to the mouth.

In the close-in islands, as soon as wind drops down a bit, there will be stripies, hussar, coral trout, sweetlip and bluebone. If that water cleans up and gets good enough, it will just be a matter of finding the bait and the mackerel will come. As to when the water will clear up, we're looking at maybe 7-10 days. Just after Easter is fished, worse luck!

Overall though, the big talk for everybody is the crabs, which have been stirred up from the rain and washed out into the deeper holes. It's a great time to target them.
