Yellow Belly: The park was certainly quieter this weekend following the fishing comp the week before and the Grabine Clasic at Wyangala on the weekend just gone. The wind on Saturday was certainly chilly. Most fisherman reported 2 or 3 fish in the boat for the day with most of these opting to troll lures. With the dam rising another 6% this week the yellows should be in the shallows over the drowned foreshore or patrolling in the many inflowing creeks. A cast lure or bait into these areas should produce fish. A local, that fished in last weekend’s comp & won the biggest Yellow Belly prize, was fishing with small yabbies or shrimp, tight in against rock walls, on the sunny side & was catching their fish 10 to 11 metres down. The guys that took out the biggest cod landed a lot of yellows in the shallows casting both mask vibes and spinner baits. Most fish were down the bottom end of the Bidgee below Scrubby. The fish were not holding on the trees out deep.

Redfin: Not too many reported on the weekend. The odd one is taking bait particularly worms. It is usually November before we start to hear about big numbers being caught.

Silver Perch: No reports

Brown Trout: encouraging signs. I had a couple of pictures sent to me recently of a 4 lb Brown trout caught opposite the village. The trout took a trolled Oar Gee lure. Bright orange coloured. Diving around 20feet. I also spoke to some other fisherman on the weekend, they swear they saw a Brown trout swim under the boat in the shallows. Might be worth a trip to the dam with some trout gear or the scrub worm and float rig. The last 4 years of stockings into the dam have only been Rainbows with no real increase in the catch rates as yet.

Park News: Park visitors may notice a bit of machinery about over the next couple of months. The new water treatment plant is starting construction this week followed by sewer upgrade works next week. The power upgrade works commenced several weeks ago and are due for completion in mid-September.
The cabins, 76 – 80, now have a 27” satellite TV & new beds to accompany the air conditioning that was added late 2014. Sorry, still no bathroom.
The lodge is also receiving some love, you will be surprised.

Around 11am we were trawling a favourite Oar Gee lure. Bright orange coloured. Diving around 20ft. AND WHAM! 4LB pound Brown Trout.
