Looking to the diagram you can see the hotel river and at around 400 m directly out is the sunken island. There is currently around 5 meters of water over the island and as the lake fills up during the winter many of these areas will become to far from the bank to fish. But for now its an exciting swim with many opportunities and some excellent features.
The river bends round to the right and runs parallel to the bank at around 250m, from the right bend until the river bed becomes one with the lake bottom is around 150m.
I think the best swim to fish to the sunken island is from the right side of the river, its around 350m to the front and this is where most of the fish have come from in depths of 12-18 m rather than rods fished ontop or on the sides of the island.
The right hand side of this 3 man swim, towards the French boat ramp offers opportunities to fish to the river gulley and long range beyond the river on the slope running from the sunken island along gradually getting deeper as the river bed fades out.
Henrik from Catch it baits in Denmark and his fishing buddy Peter are fishing the swim as I write so watch the blog for the latest catch reports.
