We needed some rain in the Clarence area, and we sure got it! The falls around Iluka and Yamba weren’t as heavy, but up the river system got a real dumping.
This has given the river the much-needed freshwater flush and with that, the bream have been going crazy. There have been some fantastic fish caught, especially around the river mouth with a 1.4kg fish weighed in by Rod Hudson, and many other reports of fish around the 1.5kg mark. Most anglers are using mullet gut, fillet strips and blade lures.
Snapper are on, with some fantastic fish taken off the Iluka wall, Woody Head and offshore. A 6.7kg stonker was caught off Iluka Beach by Matt Sheelah and a 6.8kg fish was taken by Greg Phillips off the wall in recent weeks.
Tailor are doing well, with some very nice fish being taken off the beaches and headlands, especially in the early hours on pillies and metal lures.
Luderick are making a strong appearance with some very nice fish caught at the Bluff such as the 1.7kg fish caught by James Sorrenti.
Mulloway are around the river mouths and beaches, and the flathead are just starting to really fire up, so what are you waiting for?
The weather is great and the fish are bitting, so get out there and enjoy our beautiful Clarence River and beaches!Reads: 509
