Burrinjuck Dam spilled again this week rising from 93.7% to overflowing in 24hrs. State water have again been dropping over 30000 MG per day in preparation for the upcoming wet weather.

Murray Cod: Closed season

Yellow Belly: Fishing around the dam foreshore with worms or small yabbies has been the most consistent option over the past month. The rapidly dropping water may shut the fishing down somewhat however the yellows seem to still bite at Burrinjuck on falling water levels. I have also had a few good reports from around Narran Gullen Island. Bait fishing again the best option. Fishing this weekend will be tough if the forecast weather conditions eventuate. There will be plenty of inflowing creeks and waterfalls and I would expect that the dam may reach 100% again.

Redfin; Bait fishing with worms off the bank remains a great option. However with the fluctuating water levels could work either way with the bite.

Park News:
If you do decide to come camping this weekend at Burrinjuck. We have a few unpowered and powered areas roped off. Please stay off these areas as they will become very wet once again. These areas will be great once the sunshine comes but will be torn to pieces if 4 wheel drives start driving all over them.
