Bemm River continues to produce quality bream and recent action has certainly been no exception.
The entrance remains closed, so the water level is high making access to areas easier.
Anticipated winter rains in the high country should produce an entrance opening late winter, which will give us a sensational start to spring.
As always the fishing for bream with blade style lures is reliable up till the point where the mouth opens again.
For a bit a fun fishing trolling lures around the lake or the channel is producing good quality tailor on light gear.
Out on the beach, surf fishing is producing excellent salmon on poppers and bluebait and this style of fishing and action will continue right through the colder months.
Allan ‘Spike’ Rogers of Jeeralang Junction with a 2.5kg salmon caught on pilchard.I would like to refer to my April editorial where the Bemm River Angling Club challenged the Stratford Angling Club.
I emphasized ‘catch and release’ but the photo of the winning angler (Di Cunningham) and her prize winning bream obviously concerned some of our readers.
Di chose to keep this fish as a ‘table’ fish. I thank you for the feedback and apologise for any misinterpretation.
Our angling club’s policy is to ‘catch and release’ but it is not law – most of us still enjoy a serving of fresh fish.
