Current discharge: 2400 ML per day.
Water level 14/12/16: 94.9 %
Current inflow: 600 ML per day.
Water level 05/12/16: 95.9 %
Water visibility: 100 cm

Forecast Weather: Rain predicted most days this week with up to 20 mm on Friday. The weekend is looking mostly fine with temperatures ranging between 11 & 28 Degrees C.
Full Moon = 14th December New Moon = Dec 29th Water Temperature: 22 -24 C
Murray Cod: The great start to December & the Murray Cod season continued with another 3 fish over the magic metre recorded on the office catch sheet this past week. Mark Brett from Leeton kicked things off on Friday night when he landed a 101cm fish on a 190mm White Crow hard body. Jared Greme landed a 110cm fish on a spinnerbait in the Bidgee River Arm & Mathew Brett also from Leeton landed a nice 106 cm cod on a 120mm AC Invader around Wade Island. Plenty of other smaller fish also on the sheet with Pat Brennan recording 14 Cod over the weekend between 57 & 86 cm, mainly caught in the Goodradigbee River Arm, using both hard bodies and spinnerbaits. Jarrod from Albury landed 7 Cod between 75 & 85 cm all while casting spinnerbaits in the Bidgee River Arm. These are only the fish we hear about as many fisherman leave the park keeping their catches secret. We have a bit of rain on the way this week to stir things up and the full moon is tonight 14/12/16 so I expect to see a few of the regulars out chasing a big one through the night.

Yellow Belly: Not surprised to see everyone was chasing cod on the weekend. There was not a single Yellow Belly recorded on the office catch sheet, However the Yellows are still about, there just aren’t too many trees for the bait fisherman to tie to at the moment. Some popular spots over the past couple of weeks have been, a troll along the tea tree opposite Macey’s Bay, McPhersons Creek & the run from Carroll’s Creek to the mouth of the Bidgee as well as Cave Island.

Redfin: The reddies have taken a back seat during December while the Cod fishing has been so good. Trolling small lures is a good way to locate a school of redies then try some small plastics on light gear or drop out a worm if you can zoom in on the school. I usually find them in around 5 to 7 metres of water holding close to the bottom at this time of year & they don’t seem to need structure such as rocks and logs but seem to be happy with hollows or ridges in the lake bed. They still can be found in the trees & show up on the sounder like a ball around the tree.
Park News: A Blue Green Algae Warning was issued on Friday the 25th November for Burrinjuck. Most people when asked about the water condition over the weekend replied “What Algae” I have been laid up with a super bug this week but hope to get out for a look before the weekend.Wishing everyone a safe & Happy Christmas & New Year period and safe traveling. From all the staff at Burrinjuck Waters.
