Fishing locations Roxburgh Park lake is nestled right within the residential area of Roxburgh Park from Melbourne heading towards Craigieburn. Its a small lake that has walking areas and is home to a fair amount of small Redfin. Its also stocked annually with trout fingerlings by Victorian fisheries. This makes it a great spot for kids and beginners to catch a fish.  Scattered around Roxburgh park are also little lakes and dams that too hold good numbers of redfin. Google maps will be your friend here, just do some searching.

FISH SPECIES TO TARGET

Redfin, trout.

BEST BAITS AND LURES

When bait fishing scrub worms is the preferred choice. I would suggest using small soft plastics, shallow diving hard body lures and spinners. Click here to see our best lures and plastics when targeting Redfin.

ROD SETUP

When targeting Redfin fish as light as possible which will make the experience more fun and greatly improve your chances. Redfin when active will take about anything. To maximize your chances you will want a light 1.5 – 3 kilo rod, and a 2000 size reel spooled with 4-6 pound braid and 1 rod length of Fluro carbon leader.

MOST PRODUCTIVE TIMES

Any time of day, though Redfin tend to be more active at Dawn and Dusk

FAMILY FRIENDLY

Its an OK spot for kids, especially during school holidays on trout stocking programs. There are walking tracks around the Lakes but not a lot else to do.
