Are there trout or coarse fish in there, cause sure was good habitat for some sort of fish when I dived in there 30 yrs ago.

Hi Owenpeli, Ive always wondered the same thing.
  I have asked a couple of people the question of whether there are fish in there and if so what species etc.

  But they didn't know.

There used to be the full range of coarse fish species in that lake.
However, I was told that seawater flooded into the lake on a very high tide when the overflow drain was deepened. It was said that the raised salinity wiped out everything except perch.
That's how the story went anyway.

Do you know when the lake flooded, because we saw a variety of small fish six months ago, including Perch, Shortfin eels,tench,gambusia(aka minnows)and possibly Rudd. We also saw a few fish which looked like grass carp but could have been Rudd.Also just wondering what to use.

OK, sounds like the fish are building up stocks again.
Live worms under a float are good for perch and rudd. Fish the worms on the bottom for tench.

There is no freshwater fish in New Zealand that won't eat a worm, so good advice above. Groundbait (burley) will help to get things fired up, but fishing will get harder as water temperatures drop.

You will eventually come across ferocious mosquitoes, no-see-ums, black flies, or other biting insects while fishing in rivers, streams, lakes, or the ocean.
To avoid mosquito bites, follow a few basic principles.
Wear light pants or waders, a long-sleeved shirt, a wide-brimmed hat, and/or a hood even in hot weather. Consider wearing a neckerchief under your hat to cover as much skin as possible around your neck and ears. This also shields your skin from UV rays emitted by both direct sunshine and light reflected off water.
Because topography influences wind, one location may be dead calm while another not far away has a lovely breeze to keep the bugs at bay. You can harness the strength of the wind (or even a light breeze) at places such as a valley or canyon bend, a point of land protruding into a lake or sea, or by taking a boat out on the water.
Obtain a spray. Repellent can be sprayed straight onto garments, but make sure to read the label first. More information can be found here. If you are on land, the spray frequently kills the mosquitos with which it comes into contact and then dries, leaving a repellent residue on the leaves and trees.
Mosquitoes breed in standing water, so lake fishers may not be able to avoid them, but if you're fishing in a river or stream, look for an area where the water is moving quickly (but where the river still has pools where fish might congregate). That's normally when the terrain gets a bit steeper, and it's also where you'll get a little more wind.
