Angling Notes Bronte Lagoon is reserved for the use of artificial lures and fly-fishing. Trolling and spin fishing with cobra style lures is very popular. There are good opportunities for polaroiding, with tailing fish both early in the morning and in the evening a highlight at Bronte Lagoon. Good hatches of duns and beetles provide sport for the fly fisher during the summer months.
