BEMM RIVER ANGLING CLUB FISHING REPORT 16/3/17
The entrance remains closed.
The fishing at Bemm has been challenging, mainly due to strong Easterley winds on most days.
The mornings provide quite productive periods, however afternoon fishing can be too rough.
Most of the live Prawn seem to have disappeared, so anglers have been using frozen Prawn , pieces of Garfish, and fillets of pilchard. These baits have proved successful for many anglers with good fish being landed from the fishing platform.
With the water level high in the Lake, and with the full moon, after dark has been a good option.
As the season has turned to hot and dry conditions it will take more than 50 mls of rain to fill the Lake.
Garfish have been showing up, and the preferred bait for them is still sandworm.
The surf has been producing Salmon and Trevally on pilchard, blue bait and poppers.
