Fishing the Werribee South Pier (on the Werribee River Estuary) can be a challenge in the early part of the season. From September through to early December it can be a bit weedy.
The weediness has been worse in recent years due to a lack of dredging. Hopefully, this will be fixed soon with the Vic governments emphasis on improving boat ramps. The Werribee Boat Ramp is adjacent to the pier.
The river also discolours after heavy rains, which can send the Bream off the bite. Yeah, Bream is a finicky fish.
So I try to keep an eye on recent weather when I’m fishing at Werribee South.
