Lake Augusta has been an underrated fishery. It has as much to offer as any other water in the Western Lakes region and as Todd Lambert found out recently, given the right conditions, your bag limit can be caught in a matter of minutes should everything fall into place.

We fished Lake Augusta alongside Mark Tapsell today. We finished with four well conditioned browns and missed numerous others, probably each of us should have caught our bag if luck had gone our way. All fish were taken on dun patterns although the real deal was hard to find on the water.
We were both pleasantly surprised at the condition and strength of these fish. There is plenty of water in Augusta at the moment.
The IFS guys were out and about conducting licence checks and said they had been issuing a lot of infringement notices to unlicensed anglers.
