    Fishing Our Region

    Cooby Dam - Cooby has fished well over the past few weeks and it continues yet again, the anglers fishing from the bank have had some very good success while these have been moving shallow due to the colder weather. The middle of the day when the water temp is at its highest has been the best time to head out. Other fishermen are still getting plenty of action through the middle of the lake mainly up the northern end of the lake, targeting the edges of the creek bed. Jigging blades and soft vibes amongst these fish have been popular.

    Cressbrook Dam - Similar results to the last few weeks, plenty of scattered fish through out the main basin and Cressbrook Creek arm. The more active fish have been schooling up in the deeper water off main lake points, plastics and spoons being the best option. Considering the colder weather their still has been good numbers of Red Claw getting around.

    Leslie Dam - Leslie has fished well again this week, the lake has had quite a large drop in both water temp and levels, this being said the cod have started to move and chase down those big schools of bony bream up shallow, this is the time to throw some big baits around like the Jackall Gigantarels and other swimbaits.
    For the other anglers plenty of Yellow Belly still being caught on Both metal blades and soft vibes, Saltwater Yabbies and worms being the pick of the other baits.

    Wivenhoe Dam - The Good fishing continues and plenty of big fish getting around, the flats out in front of Billy's Bay has been holding plenty of fish. Trolling is a very effective technique for this lake to find those fish as it's a massive body of water to find the fish, once the school is located plastics, blades and spoons has been popular. For the low light periods the edge bite has been quite good, casting lipless crankbaits and suspending Jerkbaits has had good results.

    Moogerah Dam - By far the most consistent lake at the present time, the fish have schooled up in good numbers on the flats inside the timber and on main lake points, Plastics like the ever faithful slider grub is hard to go past on this lake aswell as spoons and Soft Jackalls.

    Copeton Dam - Copeton Dam is sitting at the perfect water level for this time of year, the big fish have started and we are hearing much better reports this past week. We are only one more cold snap away before these Big fish really fire up. 
    Baits like the Baitsanity Explorer Gills and Jackall Swimbait range are starting to get plentry of interest and big fish well over the magic meter.
