NEW - We now have a page for Dam Levels. Check It Out!

Cooby - Over the past few weeks we have seen some good consistent fishing, the bank fishermen have been taking full advantage of the high water levels and with good reason. Plenty of fish amongst the shallower water up on the edges. Saltwater Yabbies have been the standout yet again. Other anglers have had plenty of success trolling shallow running hardbodies. Working lures from the sail club and towards the rock has been successful. The Cooby Cooba and Little Ripper range of lures have been very effective. Another successful technique has been casting Lipless crankbaits through the submerged grass.

Cressbrook - Very similar results to last week, good numbers of smaller fish are holding in the Bull Creek arm, large main look points are the best option. Targeting the edges with Suspending Hardbodies has been the best option for those larger fish. Good numbers of yellow belly have been caught throughout the lake, Jigging blades and soft vibes have worked well.

Leslie - The show goes on this week at Leslie, plenty of good sized yellow belly still on the bite even with the cooler conditions. 15-20ft of water is still being the magic mark, finding submerged trees or rocks is your best bet, opposite the dam wall has been popular. The ever faithful Zx blades continue to desomate along soft vibes and Silent Lipless crankbaits. Trolling has been another successful option for the other anglers, working the edge of the creek bed has picked up the odd smaller cod.

Moogerah - Good signs of the fish starting to school up in Moogerah, the colder it gets the better these fish will bite, the afternoon sessions have been the pick of the bite times. casting Soft plastics and metal blades have been the pick of the lures. The shallow flats amongst the timber are holding good numbers of fish.

Monduran - Some unbelievable sessions this week at Monduran, massive numbers of smaller barra are on the move and willing to eat, Suspending hardbodies have been the standout lure for these smaller fish. Working these lures with big pauzes around submerged grass and tree tops has been rewarded. Still plenty of larger fish feeding amongst the smaller fish. Again the molix 140 has been very effective, with the new 120 available now these will sure to be the next big thing.

Glenlyon - Consistent reports are starting to come in as the colder weather settles in, The ever faithful Jackall Gantarel claims to be the lure of choice again. Big Topwatwers and swimbaits have fished well during the low light periods. Find the bait and you'll find those active Cod, Targeting the shallow lake points up the northern end of the lake has been the best option.

Copeton - It's been all about the Top water bite this past week, the big fish are on the move following the first frost of the year. The fish have moved shallow hunting the massive amounts of bait fish. The Gantarel, and Gigantarels have again been the standout bait, The Megabass option for this fishery accounting for some Monster fish.

Gold Coast Seaway - The Winter bite has started for most species, the Gold Coasts seaway is holding crazy amounts of bait. Following that there has been Large Mac Tuna and Big schools of tailor busting up, Smaller plastics and 10-15g slugs have been doing the damage. Snapper season is in full swing, good numbers of smaller snapper have moved into the seaway, plastics fished tight to the bottom is key, For the bait anglers Pilchards and Prawns have been working. keeping in contact with the bottom is a
