The water in the Merimbula Estuary is really starting to warm up and that means fantastic stand up paddle sessions with plenty of sea life! In the Winter time when the water is freezing a lot of the fish species tend to go a bit dormant and some species don't even enter the cold waters of the lake. From now until the chilly water arrives just before next Winter the lake will be alive with activity! On Saturday it was really noticeable. I had a group of four from Canberra and we saw many species of fish in the crystal clear waters. We also saw an abundance of sting rays ranging in size from small to very large. With all the fish activity starting to liven up, we sometimes even get the odd dolphin venturing into the estuary looking for an easy meal!
