Curries River Reservoir 19/8/2012
I met up with Dale "Unit" Howard and his son Trevor at their house around 8.30ish this morning and had my son Jacob with me and after Dale picked Bailey Zanetto up on the way, we headed for Curries River Reservoir.
Upon arrival around 9.30, we observed that fellow President Warwick Medwin and his mate were already on the water fishing. We spoke to a couple of guys just getting off the water, they had a small rainbow of around a pound and a couple of browns that were a bit “underdone weight- wise”, but would still weigh in around three and a half pounds.
Working the southern shore Jacob and I managed a couple of browns around 1.5 pounds and lost a couple of others.
Dale’s boat did much better with 5 coming to the net and from memory I think Wally's boat landed seven for the day, with many others lost.
A BBQ Lunch cooked by “The Unit” and a cup of coffee back at the ramp around 2.30 capped off an enjoyable little session.
Would I go back?... Absolutely!
No doubt there are big fish in there and despite it being a while since it was last stocked, there are obviously quite a few fish left in its depths for those that go in search of them.
I was surprised at the amount of fisher- people there today, (shore based and in boats).
Remember, this is an electric motor only water, if you do take a boat.
The bag limit is 5 with only two over 600 mm allowed.
