    Was about ready to book two cabins to get away with some friends late November for a few days.

    Thought we'd do the wineries and some fishing.

    Until the email said that there at 3% water.... OUCH!

    Yeah I remember posting a while back when someone asked about Wartook... a lot of lakes around that area have EXTREME dry spells. But not nessecarily all of them to the same extent at the same time, if you still wanna look into it, try and find some water level info on Wartook and possibly Lake Bellfield or even the MacKenzie river. If fishing isn't nessecarily TOP of the agenda, look into it. The region is impressive, even find out water levels MacKenzies falls if your up for a painstakingly hard yet rewarding hike, although I've heard the steps down to the bottom have improved immensly since my last visit.

    G,day marc,
    Forget about fishing at fyans.
    Lake fyans is now unfishable. If you walk anywhere near the water you will be knee deep in black mud getting your blood drained by a thousand leaches.
    Also,, And this is the most important bit,,
    Apart from being a rip off, There is nothing to do there and to put it bluntly the managment are not very nice (think of a few names and you will get it right).
    You are better off staying in halls gap.
    Bellfield is still very low but there is still a chance of a decent trout. Not sure if you have any kids or if you do how old they are but if its nice and you have already been to seppelt at great western. See if you can get a hold of a good map of the grampians and go for a drive around the back of mount william. All dirt roats but very good for two wheel drive. You have every chance of seeing a deer in the wild or an emu or two, Stumpy tailed lizards and a million roos.
    The wild life park between pomonal and halls gap isnt too bad either.
