Fishing

It is a particularly good lake for streamer and wet fly fishing in the first few months of the season. Late spring to early summer you will see mayfly hatching, and targeting mayfly feeders with dries or unweighted nymphs is the way to go. Fishing from a drifting boat or wading the margins are both good options and give you plenty of opportunities at the quality brown trout in this waterway.

Access

There is good access to Lake Leake via Lake Road which takes you to near the dam wall and also Kalangadoo Road. From both of these areas you can find good fishing by foot, or launch a boat at the ramp.
