Waroona Dam Trout
Western Australia isn't the first place you'd think of for Trout, but in the South West of WA, is Waroona Dam, which is stocked with both Brown and Rainbow Trout providing an interesting change from the saltwater fishing. Nick starts by trolling along a tree lined bank and soon gets into a couple of small yearling Rainbow Trout. Moving up to the dam area he then finds a good sized Rainbow on a Rapala lure which looks very similar to a small trout. After taking a break to show us the various lures he favours for these trout he continues fishing. Trolling around 3.5kph seems to bring consistent results throughout the day, despite the bright weather. The following day, Nick makes an early start and is soon into the fish again rounding off the trip with a succession of hard fighting Rainbows.
