It’s Summer time and the fishing is easy

Marty Wells
The difficulty (or easiness) of a fishery is relative and changing, a waterway may yield good results one day but for reasons unknown, completely shut down the next. There are however, a number of waters that consistently give up their fishy inhabitants more readily. One thing these waters have in common is a huge population of trout. Most trout fishers are aware of the fact that the bigger the fish population in any given water, the smaller the individual fish size. This is due to the finite amount of trout tucker available in any given waterway. Unfortunately, unless larger fish have been stocked into a lake these easier waters usually hold fish averaging closer to one pound than two. Having said that, big fish can turn up anywhere at any time.

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.
