At this time of writing the entrance still remains open and it has been open since February 20 this year.
This has been an amazing feature of this area, as nature has clearly done its job. The lake level may be low but the fishing is of top quality.
The river mouth is accessible with care.
Those anglers fishing the river have caught quality bream. Siberia is also producing excellent bream and luderick with reports of luderick around 1.3kg. Not as plentiful as previous times, but they are still there.
The Australian salmon are still making their presence felt in the channel and are an awesome spectacle on bream gear. All the ocean beaches are producing fish on the rising tide, ranging from salmon, tailor, yellowfin bream and quality golden eye mullet.
The flathead are now starting to move about with the water warming up with reports of some great catches. All in all we are in for another top season. Proven baits for the bait angler is soft shell squirters and sandworm, so bring your pump and sieve for the best rewards.
The lure angler is continuing to achieve good results with soft plastics, with the best colour being pumpkin seed and vibes, especially in charcoal colour with orange markings.
It appears that many different hardbodied lures are also luring quality fish, with 1m divers being great to snare the odd perch. Peeled prawns have also been inviting bait for many species.
