Murray Cod: Closed season

Yellow belly: Once again the wind this week has kept the fishermen quiet. Most of the fishing captures have been coming from the Goodradigbee River. This may be because it is closer to the park, the river valleys provide some shelter form the wind, or my report last week. Chasing the warmer water should produce fish further up the dam towards Tait’s Straight and the islands as the Yellows have typically come on the bite earlier in these areas each year then they have in the lower reaches of the dam. Trolling was doing the trick last report. This week has seen a few fish caught on both yabbies and worms. Shrimp are still tough to find so it may be worth bringing some with you if you can, otherwise most bait suppliers should have small yabbies by now.

Redfin: Have remained the constant catch over the cooler months. Redfin will jump all over a trolled lure usually trying to eat a lure much bigger than they should. No big numbers are being caught, however you should land a feed over the weekend either trolling, casting or on bait.
Brown Trout: None this week however it may be worth trolling a few smaller trout lures out in the deep during low light periods.
Park News: Fires are still permitted this weekend, the park is still looking green and hopefully we get the few mm of rain forecast before the weekend. Firewood will be available at the general store or bring it with you. All fires need to be in a fire drum, wood BBQ or fire place. You may also bring your own drum.

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 //
