LESLIE DAM: Anglers at Leslie Dam saw plenty of legal sized Golden Perch landed over the Easter holidays on a variety of bait and lures. Frozen shrimps and saltwater yabbies proved to be the most successful forms of bait. Golden and Silver Perch were landed in all of the usual spots. Anglers casting blades and tail spinners landed some nice fish in the deeper water in the main basin. We received reports from several anglers of some quality Golden Perch being landed on trolled hard body lures. There were also reports received of several legal sized Murray Cod landed over the Easter long weekend, with an angler from Pittsworth landing one measuring 92cm on a trolled spinnerbait.

CONNOLLY DAM: Connolly also saw several Golden Perch landed, with anglers fishing with bait seeing the best results, particularly in the afternoon. Anglers landed several legal sized Silver Perch on worms, with the best fish measuring 49cm in length. Anglers trolling the new Jackall Trigon from their kayaks landed some quality Golden Perch, with some of these fish measuring up to 50cm. There were also a few smaller Murray Cod landed over the Easter long weekend.

RIVERS AND CREEKS: The Condamine River saw several large Golden Perch landed, with lure anglers landing more fish than previous weeks. The eastern side of Warwick proved to be one of the more successful areas, with reports coming in from anglers in Killarney landing some nice Golden Perch on spinnerbaits. There were also several smaller Murray Cod landed in this area on diving hard body lures. Campers in the Pratten area also reported on a few Golden Perch being landed on bait. There were also some big Carp removed from the waterways.
