Temperature can make the difference with trout

by Tony Ritchie

Brown Trout find very comfortable temperatures between 12 and 20 Degrees Celsius and often feed best at the top end of this range for brook and rainbow trout is several degrees less. Trout can live for only limited periods in water temperature of 28 degrees.

Lake Dulverton 21/8/2013

My son, Alex & I took a slow trip to Launceston (for my niece's 21st celebration) on Saturday (17th Aug)  with intent to fish Brumby's Creek out of Cressy but stopped by Oatlands at Lake Dulverton. Its level was down but should fill up perhaps after the northern weekend rain.

I managed to land 2 reasonable rainbow from the lake.

1st  was 67.5cm length about 4.3kg - about {9 1/2 Lbs}  ( 4kg cleaned )
2nd  was about 2/3  size of first - within 20 minutes of the first !

We only spent about 3 hours there during the mid  very overcast morning.

So,  there are fish in that  weedy  hole ! These were "old'  very healthy stockies
Used a  small trout patterned hardbody lure - like a "Repala Spotted Dog" - soft plastics would probably do too.
Worked well !
Brumby's Creek  had fast flowing dirty water, fished without success. Surrounds were very muddy, as expected.
