The fishing just seems to get better and better in Bemm River. We are now in our eleventh year and it continues to produce and please.
The entrance closed approximately six weeks ago so the water is at a good level to get to those difficult locations when the entrance is open.
The continual hot weather is great for anglers targeting flathead, which have been taking lures and frozen prawn.
The entrance of Mud Lake, Bobs Bay and The Mahogoneys have been popular locations for anglers with reports of quality bream being caught on frozen prawn, sandworm and soft plastics. The average size of the bream have been between 43-45cm, and the flathead are averaging around the 50cm.
Anglers fishing from the jetties and fishing platforms have also been pleased with catches of quality bream. Most visitors to the area will have noticed the new fish-cleaning table in between the fishing platform and the boat ramp. This replaced the old one and is a great asset to the area.
I have had reports of a few prawns sneaking about the edges of the lake. This is an enjoyable activity on these warm balmy evenings. The surf is still fishing well for salmon. Gummies are also being caught at first beach on a full and new moon.
It is vital that you are aware of fish sizes and daily limits, in addition to your fishing licence being current.
