Fishing Our Region

Cooby Dam - It's been a little hard to venture out to cooby this past week with the wind and rain but this easter weekend is looking good with a change of weather, working the edges may be your best bet as these fish will move a little shallower with the cooler temps, casting blades and smaller soft vibes should be the go to baits. A few keen anglers have been fishing off the bank the last few days and have had better success, both saltwater yabbies and worms being the best option.

Leslie Dam - 
Leslie remains to be fishing quite well, the mouth of sandy creek and towards the black bouys has seen plenty of action, locating structure is key to finding those active fish. Trolling some of the deep edges and the creek bed has also been successful. For the anglers lure fishing blades like the old faithful ZX and TT Switchprawns remain to be the most effective, trolling Deep diving hardbodies like the Little ripper lures has picked up some decent fish as well. This colder weather should see an early bite for the cod fisherman. Topwater lures and larger swimbaits have started to put some big fish in the boat.

Somerset Dam - 
Considering the weather the fishing hasn't been that bad. this rain has come in great timing as we come into winter, a good edge bite will be on the cards during the cooler months, for the schooled fish, plenty around between Pelican point and red rock, the shallower water around that 20ft mark has been key, soft plastics and Hot Bite Spectres have been the lures of choice as well as spoons and metal blades getting the odd fish. 

Coolmunda Dam - 
Still some consistent fishing at Coolmunda, some great cod fishing is on offer if you're keen to put the casts in, larger spinnerbaits and mumblers have been the go to, targeting the standing timber and sunken laydowns is your best bet. Out in the main basin trolling the edge of the creek bed with 20ft hardbodies or Jackall TN60's has been the standout.

Glenlyon Dam - 
The most consistent fishery at the present time with lots of big Yellow belly being caught, targeting the standing timber with either blades or soft vibes has worked well, anglers fishing bait have also had alot of success in the same areas, tight to the trees is key. The cod have started to show up amongst the shallower water, these fish are starting to feed on the boney bream schools so matching the hatch with big swimbaits like the jackall Gigantarel and the popular Baitsanity explorer Gill glide.
