    Thanks for the replies fellas, but had to shelve all plans due to the bushfires. The whole of the Dargo high plains area was closed and still is. We instead headed north of Omeo and did the limestone Rd, Tom Groggin, Mt Pinitabo and Davies High Plain track, which was good fun in a lifted BT50. All the creeks were low, so didnt get a fish in. A great 4wd trip nonetheless, the scenery was fantastic with wild brumbies, roos, black snakes, black cockatoos, gang gang cockatoos, echinda and hordes of kookaburras. Was going to come back via Barry Rd into Jindabyne, but did an alternator belt on Limestone Rd. Getting someone out in that remote area to fix is another story! Cheers Terry

  3. Gday all, am new to site after several years absence due to ill health and non fishing. However we intend to spend approximately 10 days 4wdrivng and fishing in the high country from next Sunday and was wondering if anyone knows of any spots where we could spin a lure or bait fish. The spots would need easy access as I have limited mobility at present, would be happy to just catch and release!
