Lake Leake 27/1/2014

With mainland guests (Kevin and Jules) over for the Australia day weekend, we hatched a plan to head to Lake Leake this morning and to be back at the Red Bridge Cafe at Campbelltown for a 9am breakfast. I was designated boat driver, Kevin was “bow ballast” and “net boy” and the two ladies (Janet and Jules) would fish.

Arthurs Lake Report 12/1/2014

Hi all had a trip to Arthurs with Derek Poole on Friday after he finished work at 1 pm. We arrived at Jonah Bay about 2pm and up to the cowpaddock by 2.30 pm. We started drifting but there wasn't a lot going on. After about half way through the drift i caught one and boated it. 

Great Lake 1/12/2013

Hi all - I had the long weekend off so decided to go fishing instead of the Devonport show. Arrived at the Great Lake around 3pm hit the water which I must say was not pleasant by 5pm in the Little lake. Got 3 nice Brownies of good condition by 8pm.
Saturday morning things were much more pleasant and got 5 nice Brownies by 9.30, then with a change in the weather coming later in the afternoon decided to hit the water early to be ready at 4.30 and headed to Reynolds neck.

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.

We got a mixture of browns and rainbows, with a few others lost at the boat

Great Lake Report 3/11/2013

Well with all the strong wind, bad weather, and work commitments until this weekend I hadn't been able to wet a line for the season.
But I've kicked it off with a bang. Having a few days off on holidays this week and had a look at Willy Weather on the net decided to give it a bash and go to the Great Lake. Arriving at lunch time on Thursday started fishing at 4pm, by 8;30 had 4 nice Brownies in the boat about 1lbs, 1 Rainbow 1 1/2 lbs, and a 2 1/2 lbs Rainbow, released 2 smaller Brownies, and lost another 2 at the boat.

Lake Leake  Report 3/11/2013

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.

Great Lake Report 2/11/2013

Had a trip up to Great Lake today with a mate from Hobart, Graeme Cox. I met Coxy at Great Lake Lodge at around 10am and headed up the highway to a track down the lake just past Boundary Bay. We put the boat in and we headed over to Elizabeth Bay, very sunny and calm conditions, which made things a bit tough, but we managed five nice fish.

Morass Bay - Arthurs Lake

Before and after shots of the boat launching area at Morass Bay. No parking signs have been installed on the approach to keep the area clear for turning and launching (Stephen and Adam please use obstruction infringement/caution if required). Parking is available on Nielsen Crescent approx 50m walk from the ramp until the lake level drops. No Parking signs will be removed when there is enough space for parking at the ramp.

Lake Leake Report 25/10/2013

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.
