    Nice photos from you and Roland. I don't remember seeing it this low in years. The dam is full at the moment, about 95%, the trees in your pic are now just twigs sticking out of the water. It looks awesome at the moment, I will dig out some recent photos.

    Well Andre, why dont you start us off. Tell us what flies worked and what retrieves, maybe even what depth and in which areas. Would be much appreciated!

    Hi guys.

    Whats the topography of the dam like. Is there a steady drop to the deepest point or is it shallow and then a sudden drop off. And how deep is the deepest point when the dam is at 100%

    Thank Guys

    Here are some pics from march 2008, fishing was ok. Surface water temp a constant 19 degrees. Made the bigger fish a little bit scarce.....

    The stockies are fat little rugby balls, phenomenal growth rate....


    This is the fastest driftboat on lakies....


    Rafting up for lunch


    Had amazing experience watching two otters feeding. They became very relaxed with my presence and came very close to me..... One caught a crab, rolled over on its back and ate it..... Here are some pics
