New Trout Dam opening in the Mornington Peninsula


Recommended Posts

Hi guys

Ro Paxevanos recently 'reviewed' the DevilBend Reserve dam (near Mornington Peninsula) that will be opened to the public in Mid December 2012! It is a 'decommissioned' water dam & after lobbying by local anglers to open it to the public, I bet the opening day will be well attended! It will be opened at night as well - tho fishing will be restricted to a 5hectare area (from an availability of 250ha water in the lake.) Hopefully, more areas will be opened as time progresses - and who knows, eventually it may even be opened to Yak fishing, if lobbied by local yakkers!!

It has been well stocked with brown & rainbow trout & supposedly has some cod as well!

Cheers - good to see local govt working well with anglers!!

Hi Royce

All is good!! Been pretty busy in the last couple of months ....... and it won't get any easier in the lead up to Xmas!! I will be hunting some of the big blackies that lurk around the leases tho, soon! biggrin2.gif

Yes, they sure are lucky to have such a productive waterway made available to them!! 24/7 access if you are prepared to walk in. thumbup.gif

From memory, there is a big pond up the back of Pittwater somewhere that they could do that to!!! Big BASS would be a bonus tho!! wink.gif
