Murray Cod
Ben Johnston from Bulli has kept the run going with a 102 cm cod taken on a Codger Hard Body while trolling in the Murrimbidgee Arm. Tim from Wagga also went close to joining the club with 2 fairly good fish measuring 97 & 98 cm, Tim and Anthony picked up 6 cod in total trolling spinner baits & Hard bodies late afternoon until after dark in the main basin. Trolling is the main method being used to target the big fish. The dam gate has been opened this week with over 6000 ML per day going out for the last 5 days. Lets hope the falling levels do not shut down the fishing.

Yellow Belly
The catch rates have increased this week. Gordon from Wollongong reported 20 + fish over the weekend up to 2.2 kg on bait. The fish have also been taking small trolled hard bodies such as AC Invaders. Anthony from Leeton reported 11 yellows in the main basin trolling late evening sizes up to 48 cm. There is a mass of small fish (smelt) in the shallows as well as plenty of shrimp being caught.

No big numbers this week, the odd fish being picked up on the troll.

Trout, Silver Perch
No reports this week.

Heaps being caught, worms corn
