I went along to Snobs Creek this morning; they had quite a good crowd there.

I visited the pondage afterwards, the only thing that was interested was a spiny crayfish on dough. I put it back as I wasn't sure (until afterwards) that they were a legal take from the pondage.
Cheers,
Neil

Nice pics nmgar, I went then hit up the pondage after. Fished for a few hours using different powerbait for only 1 touch. People I spoke to seemed to be having the same luck. There was a huge amount of water changeover while I was there. In the spot I was at, about 2 meters of bank got exposed with the drop, then on the fill it came back higher than where it was when I started

I was there from about noon to 2p.m. and the pondage was full all the time I was there. I was by the oval and there was quite a flow going but input was equal to output.

I put one rod out trying worms, powerbait and dough, the dough was the only thing that was touched and no rod movement so I suspect that crays were the culprit. I should have put a drop net in the car.

I also tried a brown trout pattern Tassie devil which gave me nothing.
Cheers,
Neil
