Timber Lake is a picturesque 40 acre bushland lake situated in the Otway ranges hinterland in Victoria. The lake is some 1-1.5 km in length, of which 2/3 is dominated by stands of drowned timber stumps and logs. This has proven to be a haven for the powerful native fish that reside there.
Timber lake is home to lure and fly munching cod in excess of one meter in length and golden perch breaking the seventy five centimeter barrier. In addition to the cod and golden perch, the stealthy and hard fighting silver perch have established a targetable population and have been landed up to sixty cetimeters..
