Forecast Weather: This weekend is looking a lot like winter with temps ranging between 4 & 12 deg C. Winds up to 19 km on Saturday. 5-10 mm of rain is predicted for Wednesday, Thursday & Friday with a possible shower on Saturday.
Full Moon = May 22nd New Moon = June 5th Water Temperature: 16-18 deg

Murray Cod: The weather was glorious over the weekend with a hat and sunscreen required. The fishing was not quite as good as the weather. There was a rumour of a big 1 metre plus Cod caught on Friday night however this was a second hand report. A few fishermen did land some legal sized Cod over the weekend mostly on trolled lures. I managed a nice 65cm on Sunday afternoon, I cast a lot of spinnerbaits around Cave Island and some other rocky points and eventually landed the one fish on a Jackall Transam 95. Mark from Galston managed 6 Cod, between 50 & 60 cm, on Sunday morning while trolling a black & silver hard body in the lower Bidgee Arm.

Yellow Belly: There are a few about but getting harder to find. The bait fisherman are doing better than the lure guys. Gundagai Anglers had a few guys in over the weekend and finished with around 15 fish between them. A few of these took trolled lures but most were bait. The shrimp are also a bit scarce but if you can source from elsewhere and bring in you stand a good chance of picking up a few fish off the trees. As the water cools, which no doubt it will after this week’s weather, look at the shallower warmer water or the north facing rock walls. We may even see a bigger rise in water levels this week if the predicted 30 + mm falls in the catchment. The fish were caught at Scrubby, Macey’s Bay & McPhersons Creek.

Redfin: Getting tougher to find also. The odd fish being caught on bait or troll but we won’t see any big numbers till summer rolls around again.

Park News:
