Bring on the bumper season
  |  First Published: October 2016



The local waterways have experienced a brilliant flush out during the past few months, with extreme winter rains and a huge entrance that has been open since June.

The channel is alive with salmon, tailor and the odd trevally.

There have also been reports of bream being caught between the Mahoganys and the entrance to the channel.

The warmer weather will no doubt entice the luderick, as they will be preparing to enter the channel from the ocean.

Vibes and hardbodies are proving to be a successful and fun way of fishing, making for a fun family recreational activity.

The warmer weather and longer days are the ideal combination for a productive night’s fishing on the surf, especially if you are targeting gummies or flathead.

Recent visitors to the area landed 10 nice bream up to 40cm, which they caught in the lake on peeled prawn.

The following day they had fun chasing the salmon in the channel, then on Sunday morning they fished at the mouth of the channel where they had fun catching quality bream.

The water level is very low, which makes it difficult to access the river, therefore I have not had any reports for that location.

The river can still be accessed at Dollys Garden and nearby where there are two new modern fishing platforms.

There is also an existing fishing platform located near the ‘farm’ via a walkway, past Cosy Nook Accommodation.
