or are there any other spots close by worth trying.

Hi Ben, storm king is a stocked dam so you will need your sip, I like this dam as I have gotten the elusive blackfish here. The water is usually dark, trolling boomerangs at the right depth is a certain. Now that it's warming up you'll probably get alot of skiers for a small dam. Other places to fish is in stanthorpe itself(quart pot creek I think it's called) or the Severn river(queensland one not the NSW) that sort of follows the new england hwy out of stanthorpe, there is plenty of little weirs that back up water that hold cod, yellas and blackfish if your lucky, those ausspins big natives are the go here as well as surface lures as there is alot of timber to play around in. There is only one place that is a no fishing zone in this area of the servern towards ballendean, (something hole, I'll find the name and add it). Beautiful country down that way
