Fishing at Lake Beedelup

Beedelup Lake offers some great fishing opportunities for those that are into freshwater fishing.

There are a number of different spots you can fish from including fishing from the banks of the lake, out of a kayak, off the jetties and even from your chalet! (Yes, believe or not I’ve seen people land trout whilst casting a line from their lakeside chalet)

What fish can you catch at Beedelup?

Beedelup lake is stocked with small trout (both Rainbow and Brown) on an annual basis, hence catching a feed of trout from Beedelup is quite common. In addition, Perch are also caught in the lake.

You can also catch marron at Beedelup – check out the below video of marron being caught off a lake chalet balcony!

What fishing methods to use at Lake Beedelup?

As trout are the primary species there you could try fly fishing of some freshwater spinners. However, as this lake is stocked annually I’ve found the most successful method is using corn kernels suspended mid water under a float.

When I was there last I caught a number of trout this way. I got this tip from a local fisherman who said trout like corn kernels as they are similar to the pellets they are fed when growing up in the local hatchery before being released into the waterways around Pemberton (including Beedelup lake).
