At last a day without wind or rain had me heading off with the trout rod to check out a couple of rivers to fish. Well the two that I was hoping to have a session in were both running too high for my liking so I went to a small creek some 20 kilometers away that I often have a fish in early season. Today I'm hoping it will give up a fish or two today as well. Once there I found it was running reasonably high and very cloudy in colour, but still fish-able. Before I put the waders & boots on I thought I would just flick a WildBait hard body lure from the banks of the creek. It only took a couple of casts before I had a hit and miss, so the signs were there that there may be a few fish about. I fished along the creek for just on fifty meters for three nice browns all in the 300gm - 500gm range. So it was back to the car and on with the wading gear.

Brumbies Creek Report

Caught this 9.5lbs brown trout 2 weeks ago on a Sunday afternoon when i decided to fishing for an hour with my wife and two year old son to my favourite spot on Brumbies Creek, Cressy. Spotted the fish on the other side of the creek sitting in a deeper hole just out of the current,

thought it may have been a log of wood in the water or a dark long rock until i put my soft plastic in front of him and seen him turn and chase it.He was swiping at the tail of the plastic all the way in until i seen him chase one last time and open his massive mouth  and take my lure, he would have been no more than four metres from me when he took it and charged away. My reel was screaming with line pouring off it the quickest I've ever seen i go before, after about 20 minutes of heart racing action I finally had him on the bank. Trout was caught with 4lbs line and 3"berkley pearl/olive minnow.
 Cheers Adam
