The upper reaches of Australian salt rivers, where the salt dilutes with the fresh, is what’s called the brackish waters. Not only will you find some of Australias most remarkable and beautiful scenery, you will more than likely not have to share it with another living soul. This is where you will often get an interesting crossover of species. What you are most likely to find in numbers, are brackish Black Bream and Australian Bass. These guys share some common traits and the best common behaviour is the way they attack prey on the surface. It’s aggressive, relentless and resistance is futile. Come summer time when the Cicadas leave their earthy burrows to find a mate is when this particular area of a river comes alive.
