Catch of the week:
John Hunter took full advantage of the multi bait access on the north shore to take a double limit from the edge of the spillway on ledger.

Memorable Moment of the week:
Kenny Lee braved storm Callum to net five rainbows in three hours while float fishing in the south corner of the Dam.
  • Best areas and flies: Fish have been rising in the early evening along the north shore when the water has gone flat and large sedges and daddies are present sheltering in bank side vegetation. Muddlers or a Sedgehog pulled through the waves and olive or orange blobs on an intermediate have attracted fish
  • Best areas and baits / lures:Ledgered Powerbait in various colours with the north spillway, southside stream and Hunter House the most consistent areas. Spinning remains an excellent back up method.
  • Special message for the new week: All banks open to any method and two more tagged fish added last week yet to be caught.
