We have had some amazing session on Lake Awonga prior to it spilling in December 2010 / January 2011 - with it continuing to spill up to 2015. Since it’s last minor spill in March 2016, the GAWB have stocked 1.2 million Barramundi Fingerlings. Last Spring was some of the best Barra fishing the Lake has produced in a long time so we knew we had to pay Awonga a visit this summer.
We have been following our mates Facebook page - Justin Nye @ https://www.facebook.com/gl...
... who has been guiding on the lake and around the Gladstone Region since starting his guiding business in October 2016. I will always try and book the main local guide in any area we have not fished in a while or been to before for at least a day or two at the start of our trips. The cost of hiring a guide will be paid back tenfold when you consider the investment we make in getting to an area, time off work, travel, accommodation, meals and tackle. Justin will happily show you around the lake and point out key areas and techniques that have been fishing well around the time of your visit so you can fish these again from your own rig for the remainder of your stay Or take all the hard work out and simply book a trip with him and his crew who will take care of everything from picking you up at the airport to putting you onto the fish.
