Fishing

The trout in this lake never usually grow to a great size, so keep this in mind when fishing a selecting flies. This water offers good fishing all year round, over summer there is plenty of insect activity and finding rising fish normally common, targeting these fish with dries, nymphs of small wets usually gets the job done. The fish a typically quite active during spring and autumn, fishing a combination of small streamers, wets and nymphs work very well if there are no moving fish to be seen. Winter can be tough at times as the fish can shut down, but they are still catchable on streamers and wet flies. This lake also has very good midge hatches in calm conditions, taking these mooching fish with nymphs is usually the best way to catch them, although dries can still work well

Access

Access to the lake is via the Wombat Dam Road that will take you to the dam wall and parking area. There are small tracks that will allow you to walk around the entire lake if you wish. The fishing is typically good in the two main bays where there is weed and gradually sloping shoreline.
