Weekly Fishing Report

Thursday 10th March

Lakes Entrance

King George whiting can be found from the Post Office jetty to the Floating Dragon restaurant taking pipis and mussels. Bullock Island and Kalimna jetty for bay trout, with metal lures, also try around the islands for whiting. The Eight & Six-Mile reef’s offshore are landing pinkies, snapper, flathead and gummies.

Lake Tyers

The Glasshouse and Shallow Banks for bream and flathead using prawn and cut crab, give the Channel Markers and No 2-boat ramp a look for bream. There are plenty of prawns to be had around the Water Wheel Tavern.

Mitchell River

The river is still very dirty, so try around the river mouth on the lake side and Wattle Point for garfish.

Tambo River

This river is also a bit muddy looking; the best spot is around the river mouth for bream, using cut crab. Nicholson With the recent rains the river mouth is the best spot for bream, best bait being cut crab.


Whiting can be found at Shaving Point and for the boaties there are whiting near Flanigan’s Island, Baxter Island and The Barrier Landing.


Deep Water jetty, The White Cliff’s and Pelican’s Point for bream on cut crab and prawn. The back side of Raymond Island for whiting, with good results using pipis, mussels and worm.

Holland’s Landing

The Strait, Woodpile, Hollands Landing and into Bull and Jones’s Bay are the best spots for bream, preferred bait’s cut crab, prawn and spider crab.


Due to the recent rain the Snowy river is very high and dirty. The surf beaches are the best spots now.

Bemm River

The entrance has opened on its own, so fishing is productive for bream and flathead, on the usual baits.

Tamboon Inlet

Try the river mouth and Pelican Point for bream on prawn, cut crab and lures. The football ground for pinkies and trevally taking pilchards and blue bait.


With the recent rain, water levels are up and may take some time to come back to normal. With this in mind, fishing has been reasonably quiet.

Omeo High Country

All the rivers are producing good fishing with best results on earth worm, soft plastics, spinners and metal lures
