Current inflow: 540 ML per day.
Water level 01/03/18: 47 %
Water visibility: 2 metres, main basin

Forecast Weather: Temperatures will climb all week reaching a top of 36 degrees C on Sunday. Cloud increasing however little chance of rain. The park fire ban remains in place.
Full Moon = March 31st New Moon = March 18th Water Temperature: 26 deg C

Murray Cod: It’s been a few weeks since I last penned a report. Not a lot has changed other than decreasing water levels. The big wet in Canberra a few weeks back did not result in any rise in water levels. Things just levelled out for a couple of days before starting to drop again. There have been another couple of 1 metre plus fish caught since the 124 cm Cod featured in the last report. The larger fish have remained reasonably consistent for the night fisherman with a good spread of smaller fish being landed during the day. Plenty of fish above 80cm. Most fish caught on the troll during the day have been in at least 6 metres of water & the lures used have been quite diverse with spinnerbaits, hard bodies, large plastics and yabbies all featuring.

Yellow belly: Have also remained deep on the trees and around structure during the day. The trees are starting to show in the main basin around cave island and they will definitely be worth a look. The Yellows have been hanging around in 10 to 12 metres of water for the past couple of months. As the water starts to cool they will move to warmer water. Trolling has been tough going with most of the catches coming on bait, plastic grubs and cast lures.

Redfin: Heaps of small stuff about. The bigger ones were there late last year up to 40 cm. Alas just small ones all over the dam and jumping on the trolled lures.

Park News: The fire ban is now in place for the park until further notice, usually March/ April.
