Hi Yakkers

Well trip number 2. Depart 1pm for troll down the Molonglo river, beautiful spot, paddling in for the first time I can see what shore based anglers are missing out on, such a beatiful spot, and not expected! The sounder showed a depth of 7 meters as soon as you entre the mouth of the river, and fish were marked on the sounder at 5 meters.....trolled with a 4.5 depth lure, no luck, dropped spinner baits to the bottom to but no luck. Started to employ the trick of paddling over the air bubbles, sounder would mark fish at 3 meters, but no bite..........

Beautiful day for a paddle, bit windy on the way back, especially coming back into east basin, but topped it off with a beer and thoughts about Googong on the 19th!

Looks like a familar route Ash - I tend to wander around between the bridges a bit too, but haven't managed to catch anything there in the three trips I've had so far. Maybe once it warms up a bit more... those snaggy tree-lined areas scream yellowbelly/cod to me though - not sure why the lures aren't being attacked.

Yeah, like you said, needs to warm up.......I dont think they were on the bite that day......but I will be going there again for sure when it warms up

Nice report, the yak looks great on the water mate but was there much traffic there? ( All to your self? )
there was a guy on a stink boat trying his luck on fly....no fish....two yakers (recreation) came by and some people bait fishing further East, and of course my mate who joined me.
