Forecast Weather: It is looking fine for the weekend with a minimum of 7 & max 24 degrees C. Winds will be mild up to a max of 15kmh. A high pressure system has moved across the state with a barometer reading 1025 HP today. The fire ban has been lifted.
Full Moon = 11th April New Moon = 26th April Water Temperature: 21 deg C

Murray Cod: The reports have been sparse over the past couple of weeks with only some smaller fish being recorded on the catch sheet mostly under 50 cm. The weather conditions and moon this week are perfect for catching some Autumn Cod. The full moon was on the 11th. A stable high pressure system has followed last weekend’s cold front across the state, the sun is shining. The water temps are slowly starting to drop. Casting lures amongst the rocks and snags along the water edge, particularly early morning and into the evening, is well worth the effort. Surface lures, large hard bodies and spinner baits fluttering down amongst the structure are all worth a good go. Bait fisherman can’t go past a large yabbie.
Yellow Belly: Have been biting reasonably well with the bait fisherman having the better results, Fresh or frozen shrimp is the better bait, bobbed amongst the trees, small yabbies will also suffice. Redfin stealing the bait before the yellows can take it is still the main comment. Better results have been coming from scrubby back up the Murrumbidgee River to Narran Gullen Island. Lure fisherman on the troll have been having a quiet time of it. Lure casting in close to the structure, rocky points or dropping plastic grubs amongst the timber is well worth a try.

Redfin: Are still everywhere with a few bigger fish amongst them. If you do pick up a school around trees it is worth swapping to a small plastic or even the old Baltic Minnow. You don’t want to lose a shrimp or yabbie on a 15cm redfin.

Park News: Easter activities are on again this weekend for the family and kids. Pick up the program from the office on the way in. The NV Getaway will be running over the weekend with the addition of a bus on the Wee Jasper side to access the many attractions on the other side of the dam. Camp fires are now permitted in a drum or fire pit. May be worth bringing your own drum. Firewood can be purchased from the general store or you can bring in your own pre- cut wood. No chainsaws. Also remember we are stopping access over Easter between 10 pm & 6am without a prior booking.
