CHANGE TO OPENING HOURS FOR TOOWOOMBA DAMS
Our local Toowoomba dams have a change to their opening hours from 1st September to 30th April. The hours are, 7am to 8pm at Cooby and 6am to 8pm at Cressbrook, water based activities are not permitted on the dams outside of these times. For more information regarding the dams and all other recreational facilities go to the TRC website, which is; www.toowoombarc.qld.gov.au

BASS
Bass fishing has continued to improve this week, with Cressbrook Dam again producing some fish out from the boat ramp, there’s still some decent schools showing up from there through to the Eagles Nest, live shrimp, soft plastics, vibes and tailspinners have worked the best. The fish are starting to show up in a few more areas at Somerset as well, with Pelican Point through to Kirkleigh being the best area of the dam to target, soft plastics, tailspinners and soft vibes have been the pick of the lures. Boondooma has again seen good numbers of Bass taken on ice jigs, soft vibes and tailspinners around Pelican Point and The Junction, trolled hard bodies have also picked up a few through the narrows, trolling deep diving lures in the old creek beds has been effective at Bjelke Peterson and Maroon Dam has seen some quality Bass up to 48cm landed over the past week, targeting the weed edges with soft plastics, fly and live shrimp has given the best results.

YELLOWBELLY AND COD
Cooby Dam has produced decent numbers of Yellowbelly, the fish seem to be hanging just out from the weed edges and trolling shallow diving hard bodies or casting spinnerbaits in tight to the weed has been effective, while using bait in the deeper parts has produced a few fish as well. Glenlyon is a bit quiet at the moment, but there have been a few Yellowbelly taken on live shrimp, frozen saltwater yabbies and hard bodies in about 12-15ft of water, Cod have proven to be little bit harder to catch, although this should improve over the coming weeks, providing the weather stays kind to us. Bait has again been a good option at Coolmunda , with some nice Yellowbelly and a couple of Cod taken through the old creek bed, but as the water temperature rises, lures will start to become more effective. Leslie Dam saw a slight increase in activity over the past week, with a few Yellowbelly and Silver perch landed on trolled hard body lures, in approximately 10 foot of water, in front of the Washpool, there have also been some nice Yellowbelly caught, working the banks with Jackals, while opposite the dam wall in about 30 foot of water, has been a pretty good spot for the bait anglers. As for the rivers, the Macintyre at Goondiwindi has produced good sized Yellowbelly on bait and hard bodies, the Balonne at St.George is fishing well for Yellowbelly on brighter coloured lures, the Dumeresq has picked up a bit, with Yellowbelly biting well on bait, and the Condamine River continues to fish well for Yellowbelly and Cod, with most of the weirs and popular holes, throughout the system proving to be quite productive.

GOLD COAST
Offshore fishing has been a bit quiet, but the36’s and 50’s have produced some quality Pearl Perch, Kingies and Amberjack, while the close artificial reefs have been good for Snapper. Inshore fishing has seen Jew, Tailor and Trevally in the Seaway on the run in tide, good numbers of Flathead on soft plastics and trolled lures throughout the Broadwater and also at the Pin, quality Whiting at the Council Chambers in the Nerang River, Tailor off the beaches and a few Sand Crabs have started to show up in the southern end of the Broadwater.

SUNSHINE COAST
Offshore fishing has again been pretty quiet, with only low numbers of Snapper and Parrot Fish taken on 8 and 12 Mile reefs and Caloundra wide has produced Snapper and Kingfish. Inshore fishing has seen plenty of big Whiting around the Power Boat Club, quality Flathead on soft plastics at the bar entrance, small Trevally in the Pelican Waters canals, some decent Bass in the upper reaches of the Mooloolah River and in the Noosa River, Tailor are hitting surface poppers in Woods Bay, big Flathead and Whiting throughout, some nice Jewies to 80cm in the deeper holes and the upper reaches have seen some nice Mangrove Jack getting about.

FRASER ISLAND
Good numbers of Tailor, Whiting and Dart getting about the exposed beaches, with some really good quality Tailor starting to show up.
