Great fishing at Lake Crescent

Lake Crescent producing the goods, but remember the bag and size limits

Anglers have been reaping the rewards of great fishing conditions at Lake Crescent this season. Inland Fisheries staff and social media posts have reported fantastic condition fish being caught. Fish in the 4-5kg range have been common with reports of bigger fish being caught. Shallow trolling and spinning large with dark hardbodies / soft plastics are getting the best results. Fly fishing along the rocky shores and fronts of the wetlands with a wet fly has also seen some exciting fishing.

Disappointingly, reports of some anglers not complying with bag and size limits have been confirmed by Fisheries Officers on patrol.

Lake Crescent is a brown trout season water open from 6/8/2022 - 30/4/2023, from 1 hour before sunrise to 3 hours after sunset. Fishing method is artificial lure / fly only, bag limit is 2 fish, with a size limit 400mm and only 1 fish allowed over 500mm. 

Please comply with the size and bag limits to ensure the fishery is sustainable for everybody who chooses to enjoy this productive location. Anglers found with non-compliant catches can be liable for a penalty of $181 and a special penalty of $181 per fish, along with confiscation of gear and/or fish.
