Murray Cod
Large cod have remained the target species over the winter months. The biggest, a 127cm fish was landed by Mark from Sydney back on the 27th July. He again checked out this morning claiming he landed fish measuring 113, 110, 106, 94, 89, 75 & 55 cm. Mark arriving early Tuesday morning and left Wednesday morning. Col Sibraa from West Wyalong also broke the 1 Metre mark last month landing a 100 cm & 75 cm fish during his trip. Graham from the ACT caught 3 cod on the 12th & 13th Aug a 110, 91 & 67 cm fish all were caught casting in the Bidgee Arm. There have also been a lot of fish caught in the at 80- 90 cm range. The pictured fish is Graham’s 110cm fish from the weekend. Mark was a bit more secretive however I did manage to find a picture of the 127cm on social media. Casting to the shallow rocky edges and drop offs with large lures has been the common thread with the majority of these fish. The lures have varied from swimbaits, surface lures, spinner baits and cast hard bodies.

Yellow Belly
There have been no yellows recorded on the sheet over the past few weeks, however most of the guys fishing were here for the big green fish. The environmental flows commenced on the 24th July followed shortly after by 8 days of showers and wind with a little sunshine in between. The falling water levels should have got the yellows moving. I will be able to gage a little better what the fish are doing following this weekend’s fishing comp.

The reports have also dried up on the redfin. They are a target species this weekend so once again I will let you know next week if there are any Reddies about.
