BRAC Fishing Report 17/01/16
The Lake remains open with some focus on the channel, as reports indicate a good mix of Bream, Trevally, some Luderick as well as an occasional Taylor coming in.
Lure anglers have found good numbers of Bream in the gutters, and the gutters are easy to see when the water is clear.
There are reports of large golden eye mullet in the same area. Sandworm is giving good value for catching this species, and is also producing some good Luderick.
Bream can be found in the Lake with the Swan Lake, Mud Lake marks holding good numbers of fish.Flathead however seem to be patchy.
The surf has been productive with some good catches of large Salmon coming in.
Small bait prawn can be dipped, although they don,t seem to be growing very much.
Some lure anglers are having wonderful sport up the River, as they indicate that quality Bream can be targeted . They can be seen close to the surface, and there is a high degree of skill to master this type of angling, as they are hard to see, and very easy to spook.
Members are reminded that our annual fishing competition against Stratford will be held on the 20th and 21st of February at Bemm River.
Marlo Angling Club will also be fishing against us on the 5th and 6th of March. All club members are welcome to participate .

Bemm River Angling Club Fishing Report 7/1/16.
A wonderful Christmas with a very busy New Year’s Day has seen the Angling Club off to an eventful beginning for 2016.
Fishing has been most rewarding. The Lake is still open, and is holding good numbers of small bait prawn. Good bags of Bream are coming in, and are taking sandworm and local frozen prawn.
Fishcare was held on New Year’s Day and 50 children registered. The children were given 2 hours of tuition on fish handling, and this was followed by a free barbecue. This was a great attraction, and all club members were kept busy.
The club members fishing competition was held on the 2nd and 3rd of January and was affected by strong Easterly winds, however all sections had entries and 43 fish qualified. Secret weights applied to each section, and prizes were presented.
Winners were Junior Girls Holly Pluke/Fullard. Junior Boys Aidan McNiff. Ladies Kathy Faff, Men’s Tony Blackford , Junior other species Marlon Blackford and Open other species secret weight Kathy Faff. A light lunch of dim Sims and wedges was served on the hotel verandah, and a big thank you to Deb and Ray.
On the following Monday mornings a consignment of fingerling Estuary Perch arrived in Bemm, and our club members joined with the Fisheries Project Officer Craig Ingram, in helping to release these precious little babies. Some of the brood stock were caught by club members, and we received approximately 5,000 fingerlings in recognition of our efforts in helping with this project. Later that morning we travelled to Lake Tyers to witness the release of 25,000 into their system.
REMINDER THAT OUR AGM IS THE 12th OF JANUARY AT 6 pm AT THE COMMUNITY CENTRE. Dinner at 6 pm followed by the meeting.
