    Fishing Our Region

    Cooby Dam - Another decent week on our local lake, with the bank fisherman still landing lots of quality Yellow Belly and Jew. Other anglers having good success Casting/jigging blades and soft vibes around the shallower edges of the lake, 15-25ft seems to be the best to start looking. Saltwater yabbies and worms still proving the best bait options.

    Cressbrook - Week by week the fishing has been getting better, these fish are starting to school up around the main basin points. Plastics like the ever faithful slider and the Crush City Suspect has been popular options while spoons and Tailspinners have been effective.

    Leslie Dam - The Cod Fisherman are starting to take advantage of the colder weather and the fish are starting to move. A few promising reports this past week with some larger fish caught on larger swimbaits, the Baitsanity Explorer Gill has seen plenty of attention of late and with good reason. For the Yellow Belly anglers still good numbers getting caught but this weather has really taken a toll on the active fish, keeping your baits tight to the bottom is a must, Soft vibes and Blades jigged slightly off the bottom has seen plenty of attention.

    Glenlyon Dam - The last week the Cod have kicked into gear and starting to move shallow for that winter edge Bite! A few good fish landed this week on Top Water and larger swimbaits, this lake has been slowly dropping so these fish havent had to move far to find the bait. Working the slow tapered grassier edges is the best info you can go by, the schools of bait will find the warmer water to feed and these larger fish won't be far away.

    Wivenhoe Dam - It's that time of year again where this lake really comes into its own and it's right on time. The fish are schooled up in good numbers across the southern end of the lake, the 25-30 foot has seen the most attention.

    Monduran Dam - Considering the Colder weather it hasn't slowed the fish down too much, these fish have moved shallower to try and find the warmer water, Suspending hardbodies like the 79 squirrel and samaki Ds80 redic has been popular options for this shallower bite.
