With the river being in flood it’s obviously a bit slow at the moment. The back of the Keppel islands should be the best place to go with the good weather over the weekend, and that’s where I’d be going. Your best bet for trout is live herring or yakkas if they’re available, but if you can’t get them the next best thing is fresh cut bait. If you like using artificials, the most popular soft lures are 5” and 7” Gulp Jerkshads and Nemesis, and also Samaki Vibelicious soft vibes. Micro jigs are also starting to take off up this way, with two of the favourites being the Maria Shore Tricker and C’ultiva Backdrop.

Coorooman Creek is still going fairly well. Lure anglers are picking up a few barra and threadfin salmon, while baitfishers are getting grunter and blue salmon. Work the snags and edges for the barra, and fish the rock bars and holes for the grunter.

Front of Corio Bay might be good, but it’s hard to say after all that rain; it might still be unsettled. You can try flicking soft plastics on the sand flats for flathead, and if you pump some yabbies you’ll catch whiting as well.

There should be crabs down at Port Alma as well.
