Murray Cod: The closed season begins next Monday the 1st of September leaving only this weekend to try and land the big one. There were quite a few fish landed across the weekend with most being above the legal size of 60 cm. 74 cm being the biggest reported. Macey’s Bay area continues to be a popular area. As is the lower end of the dam between the wall and our park. Most fisherman are trolling large hard bodies and spinner baits. No reports from the bait fisherman this week although big yabbies or grubs on dusk is worth a go.

Yellow Belly: Are continuing to move. A couple of big ones over 50 cm were landed by the shore based fishermen using worms. Trolling is also starting to account for a few good fish. Shane sent in a great report earlier in the week after the rain had cleared. 12 yellows for the day all taken casting lures. The boys concentrated on the areas of inflowing water. All the yellows were small males, nothing over 40 cm. All on jackal black red belly, mazzy vib black orange belly or black gulp. Just slowly hoping the lures on the bottom in 7 to 13 meters of water. Most takes were on the drop. Nothing on the trees

Redfin: Are quite with only the occasional fish grabbing a trolled lure or drowned worm.

Trout: No reports

Park News: We have started to replace some floor coverings. The carpets are being replaced with vinyl in the lounge areas of cottages 20, 22 and 23. The carpets are also being replaced in the bedrooms. Cottage 8 and 16 have been repainted on the inside after their renovations. They now have TV & air conditioning. Cottage 16 is having the lounge area carpeted and the bedroom carpets replaced. Cottage 8 is also getting all new floor coverings. Painting to the outsides will soon commence once we get some sunshine.
