So I've just bought a house in Pinjarra, and after 4 years living out in the goldfields, I'm itching to get back into a bit of fishing. Was wondering how far downriver do the redfin come? Can I get them on the freshwater side of the weir in town? Or am I better off heading towards the Coolup area or further? Will be doing plenty of trips into the Dwellingup forests, but something close to home would be great for a quick arvo bash.

 I'm also In pinny I haven't put a heap of time fishing in the river but the only species I have caught closer to the weir is black bream. Plenty of redfin in dwellingup and have had mates catch them further down the river so you never know your luck.

I used to do alot of bream fishing when i was in Perth so I'm looking forward to getting the hang of a new river system. But I haven't seriously targeted redfin for nearly 20 years so am itching to go and get a feed of them as soon as the wife lets me off the leash.

Hey tadpole 

Not sure about the redfin in pinni but in summer black bream are right ypro that break wall mate. Grab a tinny or kayak amd launch it at the pinni boat ramp and all those snags back towards ravenswood hold bream. Its a wicked river for blackys on hard bodies and plastics

 Used to always be a bit of a lazy bream fisherman, chuck out a prawn and crack a beer kind of lazy. I have caught one bream on a lure about 5 years ago so will have to try and add to that. Unfortunately I don't have a boat at the moment but a small tinny for breaming, perching and crabbing is on the list within the next couple of years
