Welcome to the first month of winter, which can get very cold down at Bemm River! Don’t let the cold keep you indoors, make sure you rug up and experience some of the great fishing that still goes on in winter.
June 1 sees the beginning of our exciting winter promotion, Tag-A-Fish! We have tagged five bream and released them back into our system. If you catch one of the tagged fish, you can win big, with prizes ranging from boat packages to cash.
The past month has seen some amazing weather with warm still days and cool crisp nights. Early morning has been preferable to snag that desired fish, particularly the bream.
The bream have been plentiful with great quality stock ranging from 30-42cm. Popular hot spots have been between the Mahogoneys and Siberia. Last month the water was extremely high, but the entrance was looking to be opened shortly.
The odd flatty is still being caught around the sand beds and even as far as the deeper parts of the lake, and they prefer lures.
The fishing platform has also been popular for catching quality fish. The river has been rather quiet with most anglers heading to the channel area, especially if they are targeting salmon and tailor.
The surf has been excellent, with salmon and tailor making a regular bag appearance. The surf action will get better as the weather cools down. One angler reported a 20-minute fight with a kingfish, which sounds like an epic battle.
The odd shark is still being hooked, and long night sessions on the beach will soon become the norm for the toothy and toothless shark species.
