Murray Cod: We had a couple of fishing clubs in over the weekend. Steve from the WWAI club managed to take home the trophy with an 86cm cod trolled up on a boomerang hard body. That was Steve’s high. He had a couple of lows, punching a hole in the side wall of his new 2 day old tyre, breaking the shaft on his electric motor & then had to get the NRMA out to take the Amarok back to Yass for repairs. The Wagga Family Fishing Club managed 8 cod between them the biggest being 57cm all on lures. Tim Mathieson from Wagga caught by far the biggest fish at 120 cm. Tim puts in the hard yards fishing through the night on the full moon. Tim caught the 120cm fish while casting a 150mm King Hit Lure in the Bidgee Arm around midnight. He also landed an 80 cm fish during the day on a Cod Lolly spinner bait. The full moon was the 13th so there is still a couple of days left to sneak in a moonlight fishing trip.

Yellow Belly: The fishing remains patchy however there are some good sized fish being caught. The WWAI club recorded their biggest fish of 59cm. John B picked up 5 fish on shrimp around Macey’s Bay with the bigger fish measuring in at 50, 57 & 58 cm. There was another yellow at 58cm taken on a Lure at Wade Island. McGoo and the boys from Wagga (with a broken leg) managed to land 11 yellows off 1 tree and dropped another ½ dozen fish while fishing with live shrimp around Narran Gullen island. The boys fished trees in around 11metres of water but found the fish sitting only 4 metres down. Shrimp remain tough to find this year so it might be worth bringing your own or other bait.

Redfin: Plenty being picked up on the troll or bait fishing around the trees.

Park News: The Park Fire ban remains in place for this weekend.
The Pirtek challenge is on again this weekend Sunday 19th March, info and entry at :

Photos: a 120cm Murray Cod caught by Tim Mathieson from Wagga. The smaller fish measured 80cm.
