Large dam near Donnybrook ??

Someone I spoke to mentioned there was a large dam near Donnybrook with trout in it! I have google earthed the area & the only one of any significance is in Upper Capel & it appears to be on private property. Maybe redfin 4 life has had a look or anyone who likes to go off the beaten track.??? yeh I saw Grimwade, its bigger than I imagined.

Glen Mervyn? Closest large dam near donnybrook with public access that I can think of. Have heard of marron, redfin, and rainbows in there but lots of water skiing goes on. Is part of the Preston River which goes through Donnybrook.

There is a larger than your average size dam bout 5ks out off donnybrook and have seen the flyboys doing their stuff Id say it would be stocked.

There are some big trout in Glen Mervyn Dam along with heaps of redfin, fish along the main wall at the south end of the dam its the deepest part. Any lure that looks like a baby marron works a treat. The ski boats dont seem to bother the fish much but the jetski's seem to send them deep. Fished there heaps when I was living in Collie 18mths ago.
