Fishing & Lake Report: 19/9/2017
Current discharge: 444 ML per day.
Water level 18/09/17: 61 %
Current inflow: 1884 ML per day.
Water level 27/08/17: 57.9%
Water visibility: 2 metres

Forecast Weather: The weekend is looking fantastic. Light north westerly winds will deliver day time temps in the mid twenty’s. There is a chance of a shower during the week.
New Moon = Sept 20th Full Moon = Oct 6th Water Temperature: 11-15 deg C

Murray Cod: Closed season has arrived after a fantastic August at Burrinjuck wich saw unprecedented numbers of big metre + cod landed. The biggest for the season measured in at 127cm. Not bad at all. I won’t be reporting on Murray cod now until Cod Opening on 1st December.

Yellow belly: There were some large fish caught towards the end of August which has continued over the past couple of weeks, my guess, females feeding up after their winter slumber. The weather has been very ordinary over the past 2 weeks with strong winds being the predominant feature keeping most boats at home in the shed. The last couple of days have cleared and warmed. The water temperature range of 11 to 15 C covers the area of water from the dam wall to the Junction of the Yass river. The fish recorded on the catch sheet have been caught on the troll, On the cast & on worms. This time of year, the fish will tend to come on the bite at the top end of the Yass & Murrumbidgee arms in the shallower warmer areas of water, that’s not saying you won’t land a decent fish at the bottom end of the dam, you might just have to put in a few more casts or a little more time.

Redfin: Most fisherman are landing a couple of reddies here and there but will struggle to catch any big numbers just yet. The water temps need to reach around 18 degrees C.

Brown Trout: Another brown trout on the sheet over the weekend, might be worth packing some Tassie devils and trolling up the middle over the coming weeks.

Park News: We are fielding a lot of calls in relation to the introduction of the park fire ban. At this stage fires will be permitted up until the 1st of October. It will be then on a week to week basis depending on rainfall and temperature. Firewood will be available from the general store or you may bring your own cut wood in. No chainsaw use will be allowed in the park other than ticketed park employees.

Upcoming Events: The Canberra Fisherman’s Club, 43rd ANSA Convention. Staged at the park on the 3rd, 4th,5th November 2017.
This is a catered event. More information at //
