Hi all,Had a good fish last week up at the Pond &the river. Survived the deluge but struggled to land a decent fish. Sick of the serenity - need a good fish!!! We caught 2 small rainbows in the Goulburn at the Walnuts but that was it. Gave the pondage a go around Bourke st & Riverside drive but sounds like bjt & the boys had more luck than us. Hope the fishing picks up with better O2 levels. MoggsStatistics: Posted by Moggs — Yesterday, 20:51
