Johnny Dekkers and myself fished Lake Leake today. Leaving home at 5am hopes were high that we may get some early morning wind lane action...it wasn't to be. Although a bit chilly, conditions seemed almost perfect with an overcast sky and light winds. No insect life at all, just a light smattering of midge..not enough to get them looking to the surface though.
Connor and I went for a fish down the lake; we had a few casts down off the boat ramp but we had no luck. So we decided to move up around to the Big Timber Shore, and still had no luck… We went back to the boat ramp, and I ended up getting this nice little rainbow! It measured in at 32cm. I caught it on a Loftys green & gold spinner.
This is my 3rd trout for the season, and I hope to get a few more!!!

We went back down to the lake once the rain eased off, I was fishing at the boat ramp with a “YEP Black and gold flapper” (Thanks Dale!!) And I had a small rainbow have a go at it, but it didn’t take it, I have about 4 more casts, let it sink, and felt a few hits, then it took the soft plastic! It put up a good fight. When I got it to the bank, the hook was not going anywhere, it was in deep! It’s my 2nd trout for the 2012/2013 season. And it’s not a bad size at, 47cm & 1.8pounds!

Connor and I went for a fish at the lake, we went up around the bay a bit and I flicked a “Yep” Rainbow Ripper minnow around. While Connor was using a squidgy bug, but no luck. We decided to head back to the Kalangadoo Bay Boat ramp, and changed my lure to a metal rainbow lure. I had around about 5 casts, casted let it sink, and I hooked this nice little rainbow! It was my first trout for the season, it wasn’t a monster, but still, I can’t complain!! Was in good condition and nice and fat! It was 31cm and around about 1lb.

My brother and I went for a fish down the lake, I was fishing off a log and I landed these 2 rainbow trout, the 1st one was 31cm & the 2nd one was 34cm. The trout were in good condition. They were my 1st trout for the season. I hope to catch a few more! (But just a bit bigger)
