Lake Leake continues to give up some nice fish although the time put in to achieve these results is often long and arduous .Pictured is Noel Washington of Hobart with a couple of quality fish (out of his bag of four) landed in a recent early morning session .
I decided to head to Lake Leake today with the mad Hungarian George Papp. We arrived around 10.30am, the lake was fairly calm and mostly sunny conditions throughout the afternoon. We mostly fished the Snowy and big timber shoreline, casting Dale Howard's Yep Red Nuts towards shore. The lake is full, water spilling over dam wall. I managed my third bag limit in a row - having a purple patch on this water at the moment. George bagged four nice fish as well. We got a mixture of browns and rainbows, with a few others lost at the boat
We went to Lake Leake early yesterday morning after a few wind lane feeders and found a few rising but they were often only ”oncers". We managed a nice rainbow, broke on the strike on another (which looked like a very good fish) and also caught a smallish rainbow. The fish very hard to catch as there is an abundance of stick caddis in the water and they are gorged full of them.
Well, with a few calm days on our hands. We were hoping we might have stirred up a few fish. We stirred them up alright, just not enough to jump on to our lures! With follow after follows, no such luck.
