because the place has never been b

quite a bit of shore line, to find floa
our fish. We utilised a range of lure

lures to help us cover the shallow
margins and caught some superb brow ve
trout to two point two kilos. The hi
verdict is that this lake, will be som
high on a trout angles radar, for excelle
some time. especially, if the excellent stocking program, can be oce
