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.
Cressbrook - Some great reports have came in since the re opening of our local lake. There’s been a good edge bite all day. With the recent foods we have seen this push the fish onto those shallow banks. Suspending jerkbaits, and reaction style of baits like Spinnerbaits and lipless crank baits have all accounted for some reasonable fish. For the deeper schooled fish they have been a little harder to tempt during the day. Spoon and metal blades being the better option for this technique.
Leslie Dam - This lake has produced some massive numbers of fish over the last few weeks and it continues this past week. Zx blades and soft vibes have accounted for majority. While the bait fisherman have also been racking up the numbers. Both Saltwater Yabbies and prawns being the go to.
Somerset Dam - Somerset has reopened but very few reports coming in, with the water quality not being the best it has made the deep bite that much tougher. Working the banks with spinnerbaits and jackals have been effective.
Monduran - Last weekend fished well for quite a few anglers, there definitely has been some tough days on the water. The majority of anglers had success casting either Molix 140’s and the Castaic Jerky J 7inch to the flooded banks and bays. The past week we have seen a reasonable Jerkbait bite on offer. Targeting the tops of trees with Suspended baits like the Lucky craft pointer or Jackall Squirrel was also proving to be a good option when the plastic bite shuts down. .
