Great weather matched by excellent bream catches has greeted anglers who have made the long haul to Bemm River. Flat calm conditions have prevailed for days on end, and has given anglers many challengers. Most visitors have had to stick to their routine and just hang in there.
Bite patterns are not easy to work out, and even on a very slow day good size fish seem to come along. The afternoon could be the best time, however early morning is usually a good bite time.
There are lots of small bream to deal with, and by moving around, you seem to find a patch of quality bream. This can set you up for some exciting angling.
The entrance has sanded, and is holding water levels well above normal levels.I have had good reports of yellow fin bream in the Channel, and they can be a good option when we get some big tides.It is always great to see the blue water come into the lake,as it encourages other species such as Luderick,Taylor or Salmon,which are often targeted with spectacular results.
Lure anglers have had great fishing, the bloodworm wriggler has produced some wonderful Bream. Other lures such as vibes and hard bodied lures are catching their share.
The surf is producing Salmon, and all of the beaches are well worth a try. Pyoot Bay seems to be holding small Salmon which are great sport on light tackle, even on your bream rod.
There are big Salmon over 2kgs patrolling all beaches, and with the many fine days there has been no better time to be on the beach.An early morning walk along the beach using a silver lure can sometimes be productive.Best baits for the surf have been Pilchard and Pippies rigged with a Popper.
