Report 8/6/17

For the first time in quite a few years we are going to have a rain free June long weekend,with sunny 16deg days forecast right through the weekend.
The Murray has been slowly rising here at swan hill and Barnsy from the Kyalite pub said that the Wakool was low but boatable.

- Doug Macfarlane put in at the swan hill boat ramp and trolled back up river and picked up a 76cm cod between the "steps" and Goat Island on a purple stumpjumper on monday.
- Had another report of a 63cm cod caught at Murrabit on a black/blue Oargee at the weekend.
- Kyle Adamson sent me a photo of a 65cm cod he caught at Cohuna at the weekend on a lure.
- Rod Mackenzie and Paul Worsteling had a good couple of days near Echuca last week, landing a whopping 123cm on a Koolabung surface lure-you will be able to view the catch on Pauls IFish show.

- Starting to hear of cod getting caught with a 1.15mtr and two at 80cm caught above Pooncarrie on bait by one camp last weekend-they said the water was fairly dirty.
- Another camp picked up a 98 & 93cm also using bait below Pooncarrie

- Barnsy from the pub reported that the Edward river had been fishing well for cod since the Anzac weekend on yabbies,chicken and shrimp-a few good size yellas have been caught on the reserve near the pub on yabbies and scrubworms.
- Had a couple in yesterday heading up to the Wakool reserve for the weekend and they said that they had caught some nice yellas up there a fortnight a go on yabbies.
- Barnsy said the floating pontoon and access ramps at the boat ramp were up and running,which will be great for anglers for years to come.

## A bit of "late mail" from Barnsy- Four mates from Elmore have been camping at the "Exchange" reserve on the Wakool for the past 3 days and have been happy with the fishing,catching a few cod and several legal yellas on worms.

# This weeks photos:
- Doug Macfarlanes 76cm cod caught near the "steps".
- Rod Mackenzies 1.23mtr caught near Echuca.

Make the most of some fine weather and hit the rivers this weekend-Happy Fishing JC.
