Fishing Our Region
Leslie Dam - It’s great to see another big influx of rain into the lake, this is bringing the fish up shallow into the flooded grass. Murray Cod have been in great numbers, Top Water has been the name of the game this past week. The Barambah Bidjiewong 285 accounted for multiple fish and one over the magic meter. The early morning has been the pic of the bite times for these fish, being on the water before daylight is key. For the yellow belly fisherman we have seen good numbers caught during the day, targeting the edges amongst the clearer water has had the most success. TN60’s and ZX blades being the go to lures.
Boondooma Dam - Boondooma finally received a good inflow of water this past week and continues to run in. Fishing the edges has been the best option for the majority of anglers, working the dirty water lines with spinnerbaits and Chatterbaits have been the consistent catches. The deeper schooled fish out in the basin have again reacted well to spoons and plastics, these fish are also catch-able, trolling deep diving hardbodies getting the reaction bite.
Lake Monduran - Some very good fishing to be had at Monduran at the moment, you definitely don’t have to go far to get amongst the fish. Good numbers of fish are schooled out from the main ramp and towards the bouy line. These fish are suspended just above the Thermocline in about 5 meters of water. Locating the fish on your sounder is a must and being a head of the fish is key to a great session, still massive amounts of fish up the top end of the lake as well, The B arm being very successful with a lot of anglers, working the shallower points during the day with plastics like the Molix 140 and Thready Buster Swimbait.
Lake Awoonga - A very wet and wild week on the lake but that hasn’t stopped the fish from being on the bite, starting to see a lot of surface action and plenty of people getting results Top water baits, the zoom horny toad has been the main lure of choice, this bait can be twitched or fished fast over the weed. As this lake rises the water rises over the weed we’ll see this technique get more and more popular. The Night time bite still being the most successful, The Molix 140, Zerek Live Mullet or the ever faithful Slick Rig 130 have all had there moments. Working wind blown points will be your best option.
