The tuna are a bit quiet at the moment. The snapper are just about ready to move out of the bay, as we get towards the end of our summer fishing.

King George whiting are still really good. They're being caught anywhere around the bay, the eastern side of Cape Nelson and Bridgewater Bay.

Anglers fishing the deep water, around 450m, have been getting the usual blueye, grenadier and gemfish.

We're going to start seeing an increase of salmon being caught in the surf. There have been quite big schools of salmon in Bridgewater Bay, in Portland Bay itself and out off Narrawong. Off bridgewater again there have been continued catches of good size flathead.

Inland, the lakes and streams are worth a try for redfin. Anglers have been catching quite a lot, even in our local farm dams and local rivers. People have mostly been using lures, as bait has been hard to get due to the dry weather we've had (up until now).

In the coming weeks I definitely recommend looking inland for redfin and trout. Rocklands Reservoir is sure to be very busy over Easter with anglers chasing these tasty fish.
