[quote:2i0p8oem]The fish population is mostly brown trout weighing between 1 – 1.5 kilograms. Big fish weighing above this are rare
Just read this on the homepage, 2-3lbs would the norm maybe up to 4lb in any year. But talking to a few old timers Brunner has exceptional years this year being one. Im just thinking the best 3 hour period we had, we caught a total of 27.5lb of trout. between 3 of us. And we still lost a couple in the period could easily have been another 10lb on that amount.10/02/2011 at 11:12 am #17546
Just back home from night fish at Lyndon with two friends,both of which caught fish,two keepers around late 2,s early3lbs and three smaller released.
No joy for me, tried the fly and a float method with fly, but i am but anovice, so to be exspected.
Bloody cold up there tonight,but good to be out, cheers Hipp11/02/2011 at 5:12 am #17551

Only pic from brunner i took, fish always look better if photo taken as soon as they outta the water17/02/2011 at 9:16 pm #17680
Fished Lyndon late afternoon till 5pm, not the most ideal time, but there was activity,
I had one take, which I was happy with as I have no idea what im doing with the fly rod, but a fish had ago at something I had chosen out of my box ,and my presentation ,if you could call it that.
So maybe theres some promise or maybe it just landed on his head and gave him a fright…time will tell.
my cobber who has had a fish each visit this year didnt have so much as a lookin this time.

Nice fish baitman,
We fished Lake Lyndon again last night dusk untill 2am, I landed 2 smaller fish on wet fly and broke a hook on a bigger hit on a dry fly I chose to imitate the small mothy looking things. My freiends landed 5 each and lost as many, with one fish kept for the night as it had swallowed the hook way deep.
An awsome night, warm and small wind, great stuff, bit naffed at work today though.

well done mate ur on the way. do you fish the other lakes in the area? I like coleridge best when it’s not blowing nuts out.
big population of fish. And my brother inlaw never misses on lake selfe. A damsel nymph is a sure bet at this time of year.03/03/2011 at 9:40 pm #17873
Lyndon is close to home for me in Darfield so I guess thats why Ive been there so often,and the only place Ive ever fished with a fly.
I have done well on spin gear in Benmore and Coleridge mainly trolling or driftfishing around the river mouths of the lakes and have fished many ohter rivers and lakes with some, but not a lot of succees over the years, its along learning curve .
Thanks for the tip re a damsel nymph Ill give it ago,once i find out if I have one in my box of handme down tricks or buy some to try.
I really dont know what im doing lol, all my wet flys were floating!!! and some of my dry ones were sinking! yesterday.
Ill let you know how i go next time maybe tonight, new moon it should be good the next few days.

what are good flys for lyndon?07/03/2011 at 4:58 am #17917
Now thats a question i wish i could awnser….I really dont know what they were, both drys I used were what i thought looked like small moths on the water at a distace, at night a wet and anything shiney seems to work, baitman sugested a damsel nymph which im yet to try.
plenty of fish there anyway thats for sure and they seem to be takeing avariety of flys wet and dry both of which out fish the spin gear which is why im learning to fly:)
good luck and lut us know how you go. hipp07/03/2011 at 8:07 pm #17919mulletmanParticipant
