Fishing locations Bemm River. Beyond lakes entrance and Marlo lies the Bemm river which is a beautiful location and very well known as an amazing bream fishing destination. Here you will have a great chance to land yourself a trophy sized bream either along the Sydneham inlet or in the main river itself. This is the sole reason why they host ABT and Hobie fishing tournaments here regularly.

ROD SETUP

For flicking lures and plastics you cant go past a light or ultra spinning rod around 7 foot in length. In 1-3 class or 2-4 kilo class. There are so many great options to choose from in this range which can be quite confusing for beginners. When choosing a reel 1000, 2040 or 2500 size is best, spooled with 4-6 pound braid and finished with a 2 or 4 pound leader. For bait fishing again a light rod setup is best. A 2-4 kilo class rod with a 2500 size reel would be a great option spooled with 6 pound line. Beginners can go a little heavier with a 3-5 kilo rod.

MOST PRODUCTIVE TIMES

Any time of day, though some fish will be more active at Dawn and Dusk

FAMILY FRIENDLY

There are lots of good accommodation spots for the family. There are also a number of great fishing platforms and jetties and nice spots along the beach towards the river mouth channel.

KNOWN HAZARDS

Always be careful when the river entrance opens. During this time the tidal flow can be very strong and quite dangerous. Like all rural areas always take notice of areas that might hold snakes.
