Anyone Been Freshwater Fishing Lately?

Has anyone caught anything freshwater lately?

Caught 4 tiny redfin at harvey dam the other w.e, thinking of heading to either Warren or Murray river for a spot of camping and fishing this anzac long w.e.

Also on a more general note, whats the accepted wisdom regarding freshwater fishing and seasons? I've heard Autumn is meant to be pretty good as water levels are low so fish get more concentrated and are hungry too...Any truth to that?

Also time of day... morning and evening seem to be best for lures, but for some reason bait is the only thing that'll work during the day, if at all... penny for ur thoughts :D

 Picked up a couple of redfin  using hard lures  at easter in the warren   . live bait is the go.  worms or minnoes.or even yabbies from the tackelshak . I usually go late afternoon.  normaly do all rite.The locals recon the best time is after the first good rains  cos it washes all the bugs and little fish down stream . does make sence.BUZ from this site cleaned up on minnoes the other day  for his pet redfin  im shure heel be able to tell you where to get some.

I prefer catching redfin to trout actually. If theyre around they tend to chomp any lure u throw at them. I still remember, my very first cast EVER in the Warren, wind wind wind... wtf? snag? fish!! little redfin!! they taste better too :D
