Nicholson River

Double trouble: Two bream caught at the Nicholson River, Steve Cooper

The Nicholson is the shortest of the three waterways in the Bairnsdale area and is more affected by thawing snow than rainfall. The stretch near the railway bridge can be productive. A scenic waterway, it has limited land-based options and lacks the reputation of the Mitchell and Tambo rivers, but average size of bream is about the same and the river has less fishing pressure.
