Current discharge: 457 ML per day.
Water level 29/11/17: 62 %
Current inflow: 3027 ML per day.
Water level 22/11/17: 61.5 %
Water visibility: 2 metres

Forecast Weather: Weekend temps between 15 & 23deg C. Rain predicted on Friday and Saturday with up to 40mm of rain forecast each day. Winds from the north up to 15 kmh
New Moon = Nov 18th Full Moon = Dec 4th Water Temperature: 24 deg C

Murray Cod: Are back on the catch sheet from midnight on Thursday. The accommodation is all booked up and the weather is not looking to good. Last December saw over a dozen 1 metre plus fish landed prior to Christmas. The Murray Cod will still be quite active for a few weeks yet. Try trolling the deeper water (15m plus) through the heat of the day with large spinner baits and deep diving hard bodies, look to the shaded water when possible. A lot of fisherman will target the fish at night when they move into the shallower water or swim closer to the surface. Casting swim baits, surface lures or even big hard bodies & spinner baits around the dam margins and shallower bays will be the go. Trolling also works well at night, no need to go as deep as through the middle of the day. Hopefully I will have some pictures for next week’s report.

Yellow belly: Have gone a little quieter over the past week. The numbers being caught have dropped back. There was still a 55cm fish recorded. The bait fishermen have been faring better than the guys trolling, mainly because of the depth the fish are holding at during the day. The good news is that shrimp are being caught in good numbers. There will be increased water inflows over the coming week if we get the sort of rain predicted. This should fire the yellows up.

Redfin: Reports of 10 to 20 fish being landed. The general size remains up on previous years. I have checked out a few of my usual spots but had no luck in the past couple of weeks. Bait fisherman have done ok usually chasing yellows and end up landing redfin.
