Burrinjuck Waters State park Fishing & Lake Report 24/04/13
Rain last 7 days: 6.8 mm
Water level current: 37.5 % Water level: 17/04/13 37.6%
Current discharge: 276ML per day. Current inflow: 276ML per day. Water visibility: up to 1.5m
Forecast Weather: mostly sunny for the remainder of the week & weekend with a possible shower on Monday. Temperature down to 4° on Thursday & a max of 24° for the weekend with light winds.
Full Moon April 26, new moon May 10. Water temperature: 20°-22°
Murray cod: Captures have slowed over the last week. The fish closed down last weekend as the low pressure system swept through. There were very few reports during the week but most fishers were chasing the yellows & redfin.
Yellowbelly: Catch rates did drop over the weekend as a result of the weather. However, they have been on the improve through the week with reports of some fish up to 60cm landed. Bobbing shrimp & worms for the bait fishers around the trees is still a great option. I managed a nice 50cm fish bobbing a Mask Vibe on the bottom in 10m on Tuesday & another in a couple of metres of water near the edge while casting during the week. The big trees in the deep water are still producing in the Main Basin and Bidgee Arm. Scrubbies have also been producing good numbers of fish for the bait fisher. The weather looks like warming up again over the next week, which should see a great weekend of fishing.
Redfin: Still on the bite. Best areas are the sandy banks along the Bidgee Arm, off the bank along the park foreshore and the top end of Wade Island. Worms, small soft plastics, crankbaits, Mask Vibes & blades are all working but I have found the lure or bait needs to be on the bottom. Fish around 35cm are common.
Trout: No reports this week.
Silver perch: No reports this week
Carp: As usual, carp are being caught throughout the dam with worms a favourite.
Park news: There are plenty of camping areas available for this weekend with many people making a long weekend out of the Anzac Day break. Sorry, no cabins left. Painting works are to commence after the school holidays with the 4 cedar cottages to receive a new coat of paint, followed by the amenities blocks.
