Murray Cod: A 110 cm fish caught, by Scott, on the full moon last week. The fish fell to a large trolled Oargee about 9pm on Tuesday night. There was also a 95cm fish, a 78cm and several fish around 75cm. The Lindsay brothers managed 3 good cod on one morning casting spinner baits around timber and rock walls, the biggest was 75cm. Plenty of smaller cod were also on the catch sheet over the weekend. The Main basin, lower end of the Bidgee from Macey’s down and around Wade Island were the areas most mentioned. We also had 2 cod caught while fishing for carp with corn.

Yellow Belly: A great weekends fishing was had by most, I often spoke to fisherman with catches in the teens each day. Trees were producing 8 or 10 fish at a time rather than 1 or 2 at a time. There were some big fish caught and hopefully most of these were returned to the water. Bait fisherman had the better rub of the green with shrimp being the best bait. Shrimp remain a bit tough to get at the moment from most reports. Brownie was in for a few nights (Yellow Belly Championships Fame) fishing with his gulp grubs. He may be foxing but he said they were working hard for maybe 5 fish a day. Trees in the deeper water with fish holding mid water were the better producing target. McPhersons creek & Scrubby well worth a try. Lure guys did OK also but not the big numbers of fish that the bait guys were getting. This is more to do with where the fish are holding.

Redfin: There were plenty being caught from the park foreshore particularly in the late afternoon. Worms and shrimp were the best bait.

Park News: I would like to thank all the visitors to the park over the Easter period. We had no trouble at all with any guests and hopefully everyone enjoyed the activities and the great weather.
