G'day guys, has anyone here fished this reservoir between Raywood and Bendigo. I'm wondering if and what fish it holds, cheers davo

Headed over to visit some family yesterday and have a go at this resevoir. It was a shocking day, hot, windy as most of you would be aware of.

after tea we went up for a look at the res and throw a lure or two around but the wind had other ideas and our efforts were shot to sh*t,

While walking around the edge of the res we did notice a fair few turtles in the weedbeds but no fish, cheers davo

Looks pretty shallow.

Maybe you're better off with a yabby net?

yes it was quite shallow but when I waded out there seemed to be deeper channels around in parts. It also seemed to have dropped close to 1mt of late. I've had 3 different reports of good reddies in there, cheers davo

We had a fish here today, caught a reddie on a lure and seen plenty of carp but didn't bring the appropriate bait to catch more, beautiful place!
