Gogley’s Lagoon and Lake Cathie

Flies for Wilson River, Telegraph Point

Flies for Wilson River, Telegraph Point

Peter Glasson’s picks for effective flies to use when fishing on the Wilson River, Telegraph Point. Target fish: bass, bream, mullet. Surface flies: Vince’s Loud Mouth Popper and the JOS Gurgler (try some black ones in size 4). Intermediate flies: Vince’s Diving Gurgler and the Polar Fibre Minnow. Deep water: The Bass Vampire and Clouser Deep minnow. I think 2 surface flies, 2 flies for just under the surface or a few feet down and 2 deeper diving flies would be more than adequate. The water in most areas is kinda shallow – around 4 to 10 feet with some pools around 20 to 40 foot. So firing in some flies into structure and in the shadows to around 6 feet seems the go.
