Fishing the King

KW browns are wild and fit.

The recent warm weather has made for some fantastic sight fishing at Lake King William. Blue sky days have resulted in the ability to polaroid fish working along the shore. The ever reliable red tag is accepted more often than not when cast to cruising fish or just cast along the drop off into deeper water.

A boat with an electric motor is ideal for this style of fishing as it keeps you moving on these calm days but drifting or fishing from the shore, in likely spots where food is building up, can be as successful.

While concentrating along the shore it pays to keep an eye out a bit deeper as fish can be seen rising to gum beetles a little further out. Any shores with a drop off are good with those having bushes and trees close to the water being ideal. Trolling and spinning with bright Tassie Devil style lures and bibbed minnows also works well.

The lake is still quite full for this time of year at about 1 metre below full supply. Now is the time to have a look at Lake King William.
