G'day Raiders, This is a fairly late report, my apologies as I've been flat out. Me and the young fella went for a look up at Barrington Tops a couple of Sundays ago. I decided to try a spot I hadn't been to called Junction pools. For anyone who knows the Tops, you take a right just past Polblue camp grounds and follow Barrington trail for about 12 km's. We finally got there (1st and second gear all the way) and the scenery was amazing and it definitely looked fishy. We used lures, plastics and bait. We had a few missed chances, then the young bloke hooked up to a small fish on the Trout Powerbait. I dropped another small fish on a tassie devil lure. We tried hard but the fish were really shy. I dug up some worms from the river bank. I was getting bites every time with these but I couldn't hook up. We were just about to leave when I finally hooked up. Another small fish but still fun. Seen heaps of wildlife, kangaroos, wallabies, possums, a wombat, wild goats, different birds etc. Not a bad day for someone who's a pretty hopeless Trout fisho. Cheers Dave
Just noticed the below on a big fishing magazine website....fingers crossed it helps Pejar to recover in years to come. It seems to have struggled according to Raider reports in recent years... Bass released into Pejar 04 Oct 2013 PEJAR Dam has gained an additional two thousand Australian bass as part of the NSW Government’s fish stocking program, NSW Minister for Primary Industries Katrina Hodgkinson said last Friday. The Minister was on hand to help release the fingerlings at the dam, north of Goulburn, just a week after releasing large ready-to-catch rainbow trout into the water. “Pejar Dam is already a popular spot for trout anglers because of its reputation for producing trophy sized trout,” Ms Hodgkinson said. “It is anticipated the release of bass will lure more fishers over coming years and provide a boost to the local community. “It also is pleasing to announce that over summer a further 10,000 rainbow trout fingerlings and 5,000 brown trout fingerlings will be stocked into Pejar Dam. “The total number of fish stocked at Pejar Dam is now over 185,000 within ten years,” Ms Hodgkinson said. Pejar Dam has received: 140,000 rainbow trout; 35,000 brown trout; and almost 10,000 Australian bass. “The Australian bass fingerlings were bred at the NSW Government’s Port Stephens Fisheries Hatchery and transported here to be released today,” Ms Hodgkinson said. “The fish stocking program is supported with funds from the NSW recreational fishing licence fee which are placed into the NSW Recreational Fishing Trust. “This is another great example of the NSW Government using funds from the Trust to continue to enhance fishing opportunities for our recreational anglers,” Ms Hodgkinson said. This year the State Government’s fish hatcheries will produce and stock more than one million native fish and close to three million trout and salmon into impoundments and streams throughout regional NSW.
