Murray Cod: The outflows have begun to slow and we have had some rain, Autumn has arrived & the full moon is approaching. This typically signals the big fish to feed up before winter arrives. A 105 cm fish caught by Ben from Yass on a trolled spinner bait was the last big fish caught. A 66 cm & a 63 cm were the next biggest on the office catch sheet. Still the odd story of the big fish that got away usually with a lure and a heap of line. Smaller cod around 50cm are regularly being caught.

Yellow Belly: The fishing has been better in patches over the past 2 weeks. The guys trolling have been doing a lot better with Predatek, Stuckeys, Ac invaders & Oargee’s all being mentioned. A few guys have also been picking up fish on the black plastic grubs around the many more trees that have started to appear. The trees in the main basin to the east of cave Island are well worth a try as are the ones at Scrubby and around Wade Island. Trolling the Eastern shoreline of the Main Basin also has been producing good numbers. Bait fishing with shrimp will produce fish however the shrimp are a bit scarce from all reports.

Redfin: There are still a lot of small fish about. Bait, small plastics or blades will do the job.

Park News: The Pirtek fishing challenge is on this Sunday 20th March. Details and entry

The fire ban in the park has now been lifted. You may have a campfire in a drum or fire pit from this weekend. Wood will be available from the shop. Small wood may be collected from around the park. No chainsaws.
