The New Year has certainly kicked off with excellent fishing in Bemm River. There is an abundance of flathead in the region, which is the result of good weather and the opening of the entrance since June 2015. This has seen the health of the system greatly increase. The quality of bream has been outstanding with many a bag out on fish exceeding 40cm.
All these fish are in excellent condition, clean and healthy. Rob Morgan and Peter Leadoux of Bairnsdale, caught some excellent bream just on nightfall in the area near the Mahogoneys. They used sandworm, yabbies and prawn. You can also find tailor, trevally, luderick and perch thrown into the mix. The water temperature has now risen and it’s easy pickings for salmon on the surf in the early morning and late afternoons. The surf has also produced good catches of gummies on the full moon with plenty of other species thrown in.
We believe that this year will be another absolute bumper fishing season. There are fish in the upper reaches of the river, right around, into Sibiera in the deep, and the shallow water in Bob’s Bay and the Mahogoneys.
