Fishing Report 12/5/2015

The water in Sydenham Inlet has now become a lot clearer and settled since the recent floods, however an above average lake height has provided productive bank fishing.

The fishing platform, the playground area, and further west have produced some good quality catches. This opportunity seems to have passed as the water temperature has cooled down. Gale force winds have set in this week, so I suspect fishermen will concentrate on the deeper water in the lake. There have been some good reports from most areas, and the recent higher tides are a welcome happening. Let us hope they bring a variety of fish into the channel.

Local frozen prawn, crab and sandworm are being used, and a variety of Wrigglers have also been successful.  The surf has been slow, with the odd salmon coming in.

The fingerling jetty has been replaced with a new one and to an increased width of 1.5 metres. I expect this jetty will provide anglers with good options when tide levels permit.


At our last B.R.A.C. meeting the recent “The lake and river survey” carried out by Gippsland Ports was reviewed, and members have an opportunity to respond to this document. Marker buoys have been recommended to help navigate the river and channel entrance, as well as the sand bar at Pelican Point.

Our club is planning a member’s weekend at Lake Tyers on Friday the 6th and Saturday the 7th of November. As the cut off point for bookings is the end of June, we need to know numbers.

We have 13 booked so far, and will probably need to book more cabins. The website for the camp and caravan park is phone 0351565530. We stayed at this park a few years ago, and had good accommodation and also caught some nice fish. The club will be providing the food for the two days, and members to pay for their own Accommodation.

We will be holding competitions with prizes being awarded. Hope you can come, as we plan to make it a fun weekend. For bookings phone Di on 0458515483 or email
