Current discharge: 450 ML per day.
Water level 18/05/16: 32.9%
Current inflow: 680 ML per day.
Water level 11/5/16: 32.4%
Water visibility: up to 2 metres
Rain past 7 days: 28 mm
Forecast Weather: The weekend is looking mostly sunny with temps ranging between 5 & 21 deg C , Winds light.
Full Moon = May 22nd New Moon = June 5th Water Temperature: 18-20 deg

Murray Cod: The dam level only rose around 1% following last week’s big wet. A few fish were caught over the weekend with most fisherman commenting “ It was tough going” The coming weekend is looking much better with a rising barometer, full moon on Sunday and waters temps still holding around 20 degrees. The biggest fish on the catch sheet from the weekend was 75cm caught by Paul from Marulan. There were a few other fish caught between 60 & 70 cm. most fisherman are opting to troll hard bodies or spinnerbaits but casting lures or spinner baits around structure in the shallower water is well worth a try. Surface lures are also worth a go in low light periods and after dark. Bait fishing with good size yabbies, after dark, also worth a try. The bottom end of the Dam or Main Basin is where most of the big fish have been caught over the past couple of years with Macey’s Bay also giving up a couple of fish over the magic Metre.

Yellow Belly: Once again most reported tough going on the weekend, Arron from Yass picked up 5 fish off trees in the Goodradigbee River on Saturday, He used Black Gulp Grubs, The fish were smaller between 35 & 40 cm. There was the odd fish caught on shrimp and on the troll. The shrimp remain a bit tough to find & catch so might be worth bringing some small yabbies if you are planning a trip.

Redfin: There are still schools of fish around and a few catches being reported. Not the big numbers we get during the summer months. Carrolls creek worth a try if you are looking for a feed. Worms may be the better option they seem to have gone off the plastics. I have caught a few on a trolled Stuckey lure.

Park News: The 2nd Greg Whitehead Fishing Challenge will be held at Burrinjuck Waters Holiday Park, Burrinjuck Dam on the 19-21 August 2016. This year we have decided to add a team’s category (The Greg Whitehead Memorial Trophy) as well as the same individual categories as last year. More information will be available soon. Cabin bookings are filling fast for the weekend.
