BEST BAITS AND LURES

If you plan on fishing with bait from the banks then Scrub worms, maggots, mudeye and Power bait and great options. Especially with small size hooks which increase catch rates.

Shallow diving hard body lures such as bullet lures, Daiwa double clutch, Rapala Countdown series and Savage gear minnows are also excellent choices. Soft plastics and spinners are also fantastic options.

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

Most freshwater species have a tendency to feed more aggressively at Dawn and Dusk. My personal favorite is fishing the sundown particularity in the warmer months

FAMILY FRIENDLY

This is a scenic area with nice walking trials and playgrounds for the kids. A quiet location nice for bird watching, picnics and fishing. Bring the kids along for a fish during school holiday trout stocking.
