Fishing Our Region

Cooby Dam - Unfortunately at this stage closed to all water based activities. Current testing guidelines are in review and the lake will open at the end of march and have less strict guidelines which will mean open a lot more going forward.

- OPEN - Cressbrook reopens today and it is sure to fish well as the water begins to settle. We will see big numbers of Red Claw on the move as they begin to move up to shallow new water. Casting banks amongst the shallow water could be your best bet, targeting these fish with reaction style baits like Spinnerbaits and Lipless crankbaits.

Leslie Dam - Another great week at Leslie, this lake has not changed after the rain and still continues to fish unbelievably well. With big numbers of small yellow belly willing to eat a bait or lure. Zx blades and soft vibes jigged vertically throughout the 15-20 foot of water has been very successful. Also a few smaller cod have been caught this week trolling the edge of the creek bed.

Somerset Dam - OPEN - Somerset No reports as of yet as this lake only just reopened a few days ago but don't let that stop you. The southern end of the lake should see big schools of fish, Pelican Point and the spit is worth a look. With the red claw around after the recent rain fishing lures like the Hot Bite Spectre is sure to be a winner once again..

Monduran - With the last rainfall putting a lake up another 1.5m it has made the fishing that little bit tougher, as the lake settles we should be in for some great edge fishing as these fish become familiar with their new surroundings. Casting shallow with soft plastics and suspending hardbodies has been effective already. The deep water fish haven't been affected amongst the main basin and continue to react well to trolled hard bodies or heavily weighted plastics. The 10ft Barra classic has been the stand out.
