Weekly Report 18 Aug 11

With the frosty weather at our back, we are set for a bumper summer. Most impoundment dams in Queensland are at full capacity and all the rivers are running well. Anglers won’t know where to try first. However, at the moment things are a little slow. Leslie is still experiencing an algae bloom, which will make for a dirty boat. There have been a few good Silver and Golden Perch landed on live worms near the concrete boat ramps. The lure anglers are still doing it tough. There have been a few fish landed on small bodied suspending lures. Make sure not to retrieve too fast as the fish aren’t very active at present. The Border rivers are still fishing well with some good quality Cod being caught in the southern rivers around Texas and Stanthorpe. Dark spinnerbaits and surface frogs are certainly worth a try.

Coolmunda Dam is still fishing well as it has done over the cooler months. Live or frozen shrimps seem to be working the best. Try trolling the old creek bed towards camp greenup. You might just land yourself a big Cod. The local Bass dams, Moogerah and Maroon, are still fishing ok. Most anglers are landing between 3 and 5 fish in a few hours at Moogerah. Most fish are falling to blades. The best places to try are a bit wide of the points. Small crankbaits paused between the weed beds is a good place to start at Maroon. Weedless rigged paddle tail plastics are also worth a try. If you are in the local area, make sure you call in to Warwick Outdoors and Sports and say g’day to John and Wayne - for expert advice on all your fishing (from kids combo to tournament rigs), boating, hunting and camping requirements.
