Fishing Our Region
Cooby Dam - Lake Cooby remains CLOSED for all boating and fishing activities due to Cylindrospermopsin levels exceeding the recreational water guidelines. Each week water is tested to ensure it meets safety standards for recreational activity (direct contact without water treatment). Cylindrospermopsin toxins have decreased to 0.5 g/L and this needs to be under 0.5. Enterococci levels have once again risen and are currently measuring 40 cfu/100ml (colony-forming units per millilitre) and must reduce to 35 cfu/100ml before we open the lake. Hopefully once the recent rain is settled we see this lake re open.
Cressbrook Dam - It's all about the exceptional edge bite at Cressbrook the past few weeks and it continues to get better, casting Lipless crankbaits and suspending hardbodies amongst the thick weeded banks have accounted for some big fish, the early bite has far been the best as during the day the schooled fish have been hit and miss, the trollers having the most success on the schooled fish. Trolling Deep diving hardbodies and heavy spinnerbaits have had good success. The Cressbrook creek arm has produced the better fish on the edges as these banks are shallower than the Bull Creek Arm.
