The lake is still closed, and is about half full. It would take about 100 mls of rain to fill.
With an extra meter of water in the lake,and there being no tidal influence anglers can choose the lake, river or channel to fish.
Reports indicate some good catches, with a few flathead as well as bream. Spawning bream seem to be spread out, with a school of them stacked up in the channel. I have fished this area for four sessions catching bream, most of them under thirty cm which were all released.
Afternoon seems to be the best, and every now and then some better quality bream up to 40 cm come along.
The river has schools of bream in the deep holes, and they can be found in about the 5metre depth. Fish are taking prawn and sandworm, it just depends on the anglers preference.
Bream are well upstream, and bank fishing at Dolly,s Garden and further up on the fishing platform has been productive.
I saw a lovely bream as well as three flathead caught from the fishing platform in the lake.The angler told me about the 68cm flathead he landed , then got his photo before releasing it. The lake is patchy, bream are harder to find, however, the shallows seem to be a good option.
The surf has been very quiet.
