Great Lake August 22nd 2011

I fished Great Lake today with Bailey, Dale and Trev Howard.
We got to Cramps Bay at around 10am to a calm lake, fished the shoreline  north of the Cramps bay ramp and then moved up to Sandbanks bay.
All up, we caught 21 brownies between us, releasing quite a few.
Fish averaged around the 1kg mark, some only in average nick.
They had been feeding heavily on worms, stick caddis and snail.

Great Lakes Easter 2011

We decided to go up to the Great Lake on Easter Saturday.  We went out on the same evening but to no prevail.
Woke up nice and early on Sunday morning about 4-30 am, we were down at the ramp by 4-45am but was too dark to launch the boat straight away so Matthew decided to go and have a spin off the end of the ramp, three casts later he had nailed a nice three pound brown.  Started fishing about 5-15am, we ended up with three for the morning.  A very well conditioned rainbow weighing about three and three quarter pounds and a nice triploid brown four pounds.

Great Lake and Lake King William Report 2011-02

Went up to Great Lake on Friday afternoon with Glen, young Jack and Bailey. Fished in Canal Bay and we managed three nice browns, I managed two on emergers and young Jack got one trolling. He lost three as well. South westerly breeze and quite cool, we saw a few taking gum beetles off the top, but things generally a bit tough.

Report from Mick Emmett - 28 August

Well, the first month of the fishing season is nearly over, but I
finally got a couple of hours to sneak up and have a look at what’s
going on up top...Not much is the short answer...

G'day all ,
Selwyn and myself took a quick run to Great lake this on the 14th, this fish must of committed suicide as it was the only bite we had .
Tthe day was fine. We travelled about 10km for it , up the eastern corner above the intake only saw one or two duns  and three other  boats. It was a pleasant trip out
cheers Tom

Happy Days on Great Lake - Fly Fishing in the Waves

Jim Allen
It is now well over a decade since Peter Wilson of the Great Lake Hotel, now the Central Highlands Lodge discovered the ‘glowing sharks’ in the late afternoon on the Great Lake while he took some time off from pub duties. Today a dedicated band of fly fishers watch the sky carefully every morning in the highlands hoping for a stiff northerly breeze and a cobalt blue sky.  

Midging trout – Great Lake

Craig Rist
Great Lake MidgingJim Schofield is a good friend of mine. His first impression of Great Lake used to be of a large barren unattractive lake that had no appeal to him at all. That was, until he was shown the view from out in the middle of the lake in the early hours of the morning.
