FISH SPECIES TO TARGET

brown trout, rainbow trout, and redfin

BEST BAITS AND LURES

When bait fishing try scrub worms, power bait, yabbies, and mudeye on a float. You will also do well here with a wide range of soft plastics & lures. Click here to see our best lures and plastics when targeting Redfin.

I have had great success targeting trout with long casting lures such as Nories Wasaby, Pontoon 21 Paco spoons, Savage Gear soft vibes, Bob n Spoon.

ROD SETUP

When targeting Trout and Redfin fish as light as possible which will make the experience more fun and improve your chances. Redfin will actively take many baits or lures. To maximize your chances fish with a 2-4  or 1-3 kilo rod. The main line spooled with 4 pound braid finished with a good quality leader.

MOST PRODUCTIVE TIMES

Any time of day, though some fish will be more active at Dawn and Dusk

FAMILY FRIENDLY

Moorabool is a lovely spot to take the family, the main entrance of spargo creek road has bbq facilities, picnic grounds and nicely maintained charming gardens. Be careful when walking around with kids in long grass and rock areas as I have seen several snakes on recent outings.

KNOWN HAZARDS

As with all country rural areas always be mindful of snakes.
