Recently the entrance has only just closed. It opened late in May and only stayed open for a week. The water level dropped considerably during this period.
Recent reports confirm that quality bream are being caught on frozen prawns in approximately 2ft of water near the storm hut. One angler even reported catching some perch in this same area.
Sandworm has been difficult to get due to the water level being so high for so long. A lot of anglers travelling to Bemm were pre-ordering it in Bairnsdale and collecting on their way past.
The Pelican Point and Siberia areas have been a popular spot for quality bream. The entrance end of the channel is producing trevally and tailor.
The surf beach at Pearl Point has abundant salmon and tailor. The flathead remain quiet due to the cooler conditions. The river remains quiet.
The saga with the jetty continues. Hopefully with onsite consultation with the residents and stakeholders of Bemm River we can now resolve this issue and offer anglers a much better and upgraded facility that will lead us into the future without the wind problems and congestion.
