Fishing & Lake Report: 29/03/2017
Current discharge: 1000 ML per day.
Water level 29/03/17: 68 %
Current inflow: 2607 ML per day.
Water level 22/03/17: 67.4 %
Water visibility: 1 metres

Forecast Weather: It is looking fine for the weekend however the temperature is starting to look more like autumn with a minimum of 9 & max 23 degrees C. Winds will be mild up to a max of 15kmh. The fire ban has been lifted.
New Moon = 28th March Full Moon = 11th April Water Temperature: 24 deg C

Murray Cod: Small cod are being caught, mainly on the troll. Bait fishing around the timber with bobbed Yabbies has also accounted for a few smaller fish during the past week. The new moon is now with us which I believe brings with it better day time fishing results. The water is still warm at 24 C despite the couple of good downpours this week. I would still be looking to the shaded banks for a troll or cast and look to twilight periods to have a cast with some big surface lures or you’re other favourite big lure or spinner bait along the banks and around the snags.

Yellow Belly: Certainly came on the bite over the weekend with plenty of fisherman getting their bag and more. Shrimp remain the best bait choice however the shrimp are still tough to catch in the traps at Burrinjuck. The guys bringing their shrimp with them are catching fish. Small yabbies are also OK. Tony & crew from Junee managed 35 yellows mainly off trees in the lower end of the Bidgee arm below Macey’s Bay. The guys trolling also did OK. Sunday was a magnificent warm, calm day let’s hope we get a few more of these before the winter chill sets in

Redfin: Seems to be redfin around most trees. I managed a couple of good size fish around 30 cm on Tuesday while casting a mask vibe, Most of the bait fisherman are catching more redfin than Yellows and are moving trees to get away from them. My theory is that the redfin have been playing havoc with the shrimp population. Remember the redfin have to be removed if caught in NSW. A small plastic or mask vibe or Jackall will work just fine on the reddies and will save your bait to use on the Yellow belly.

Park News: The Park Fire ban has now been lifted, the fire buckets and fire pits have been rolled out this week. A reminder that chainsaws are not permitted in the park. You may bring in cut up wood or purchase a bag from the general store. You may also clean up leaves, bark and sticks from the ground just don’t snap or saw off branches or start chopping up wood with axes.

A reminder also that any motorized vehicle ridden or driven in the park must be registered and operated by a person with a license to do so. The speed limits 15kmh and all NSW road rules apply.

We have been having mobile phone reception issues at the park for the past couple of weeks. Hopefully this will be resolved before Easter.

The NV Getaway will also be available for daytime cruises and taxi service to Wee Jasper, details available from the office. Max 12 persons per trip.
