Bass at Broughton mill creek

Recommended Posts

G'day Raiders,

Had a quick bass bash this morning on Broughton mill creek. 

Have been itching for a bass fish and they didn't disappoint with 4 fish in the first 4 casts. 

Almost every cast had a hook up, hit or follow for the first 30 mins. 

Targeted the best looking snags first and after pulling a few fish from each it died off a bit. Ventured further up the creek and landed the biggest of the morning at approx 37cm

Well over 10 bass landed and countless hits in the 1.5 hours or so. 

Love how even a smaller bass can pull like a freight train. 

Fishing from a crappy yellow yak that is in no way set up for fishing was a bit of a challenge and with the rain setting in I was soaked in no time.

Will be back to try the other end of the creek hopefully later in the week hopefully with one of my yaks. 

Most bass caught on soft shell cicada and a couple on a hard cicada (can't remember the type but can find out of anyone wants to know) 2500 diawa reel and a 2-4 rod. 

 

Cheers

Rah

Nice work Rah! It’s a blast, fishing for bass from a yak. Something I’ve always enjoyed doing and should do it more often! Good luck next week!

Sounds like a great session and worth getting wet for.

Its such a nice area around there. Always cool fishing in around dairy country for wild bass.

How good is it down there. Always so quiet and peaceful until there is a boof on the surface! 

Lucky for me, my folks property runs along the creek. 😀😀

Top job Tara. Looks like that water is fishing very well. Been much rain over that way? I suspect a lot more than here where the fishing can only be described as "dreadful", for December. Still, we keep trying and I'll be hitting the Murrumbidgee again after Christmas in Canberra. Cheers, bn

Thanks Neil.

Yes there has been a fair amount of rain over the last month or so. 

This is a skinny creek before it joins up to Broughton creek a couple of k's further down. The water was up a good couple of meters and raging through a couple of weeks ago and is still moving through enough to be pushing the yak around when usually you can just sit still and cast away. 

It needs a good flush out every now and then, gets a bit stagnant and there are a lot of cows that use it for drinking water so can get a bit stinky. So it's good at the moment and plenty of vegetation. 

Kids will be keen for a paddle and fish over the Xmas break. The Bass love garden worms and the girls love hunting for them. 

 

Hopefully you will get onto some fish near Canberra. Good luck mate and merry Christmas. :)

When do the Bass and Ep's normally move down the system to the mouth of Broughton Creek

Spawning season I would assume. Winter months.
