FISH SPECIES TO TARGET

Rainbow Trout & Redfin, Carp

BEST BAITS AND LURES

If bait fishing start with Scrub worms, Power bait, Yabbies, and Mudeye under a float or with a small running sinker rig. We also suggest using small soft plastics, spinners and shallow diving hard body lures. Click here to see our best lures and plastics when targeting Redfin.

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 which presents a nice walk. It doesn’t have playgrounds but can be a nice place for kids. There are plenty of ducks ready for a feed.

KNOWN HAZARDS

As with all areas that have water and high grass just always be cautious of snakes in the area.
