Murrindindi Report

Postby BrynnF » Sun Feb 16, 2014 9:38 am

Went to Murrindindi yesterday arvo for a fish at about 5pm and had a great session. Using a size 14 Parachute i managed 12 fish before dark. More rainbows than browns. Biggest fish was a rainbow about 33cm and really fat. Very good fish for where i was fishing and biggest fish i have pulled out of the dindi. Most of the time i was fishing it was raining so i would have thought that would put them off taking the dry fly but maybe because we have not had much rain lately it might have turned them on. Even though i my head and shoulders were soaking wet at the end of the session i still had a great time.

Yeah it is pretty low but still very fishable.

Where I fished, I prefer not to say just because I doubt many people on this forum use barbless hooks (not saying none of you do) and they can do a lot of damage on a small fishery like this, especially if i tell on person and they tell another and it keeps going. In my fly fishing club I only know of 1 or 2 people that use barbless hooks which is why i try and keep my spots a bit quiet.
ratbag, had another fish of it a week or so ago and tried a small dry but did not get much action so I changed to a larger bulky fly and had better luck on that, so i would say there are some around.
