Works are continuing on upgrades to cottages and six additional powered sites are being added. We will also be upgrading the existing powered sites and camping grounds progressively over the winter months.
Murray cod: are still quiet. We had a couple of groups chasing the big fish over the weekend with no success. The couple of small cod captures were a result of trolling spinner baits. The Colorado blades in gold or copper are being used the most. The big fish caught a few weeks back were trolled up in seven metres or more using big fluro hard bodies. The water temperature continues to cool which should see the big fish coming up into the shallower water.
Yellow belly: not much has changed from last week. Trolling spinner baits with gold Colorado blades is working well, red and black skirts as well as the fluro colours. The bait fishing remains the most productive option with worms, shrimp and frozen prawns still doing the job. Steve picked up 13 yellow belly on the weekend, between 0.5 and two kilograms, fishing in the main basin and Murrumbidgee arm. The fish can be found holding around structure in deeper water at around three metres down, as well as in the shallows along the edges.
Redfin: have quietened off but a few are being picked up on worms around the park.
