A recent excersion alowed me to wet a line in the dawson river at taroom with a great time had with saratoga on the bite, we fish here regulary and always get a fish (Toga's for fun and yellows for eating) The water reserve has no facilities but camping is allowed along the river(1.5 k's), a great overnight stop or a destination for the w/end, ok for vans and campers unless wet.

Hi Paul

The creek has plenty of greasyback prawns which can be caught with a net or opera house trap. If there's been a bit of rain, there's usually a few worms around as well. We usually use 20 - 25lb line with a float(2-4ft drop) and lures also work well.

Cheers

Hi Paul

Meat offcuts work alright if you have nothing else. These days we mostly use a small can of cat food with holes punched in it. This works really well and it lasts a lot longer than loose bait.

We have used packaged bait prawns but they're generally too salty & there's not enough movement for the saratogas. Hope this helps.

Cheers
