Yellows liking the shrimp

Yellow belly: the shrimp are on the move as is the small bait fish around the margins of the dam. There is a heap of fish being caught on shrimp. Some fishermen managed to bag out on one tree but the majority were picking up one or two fish off a tree before moving on to the next. Fish are holding around 20 to 25 feet during the day.

Reports of captures are widespread from the wall to Devils Pass and around Narren Gullen Island. Trolling small lures is also producing fish. Troll in the shaded areas or go for the deeper water.

Biggest yellow belly for the week: 60 centimetres.

Murray cod (closed season): good reports from all over the dam. A lot of cod are being caught while bait fishing on shrimp and also while trolling the small yellow-belly lures.

Redfin: not big numbers but bait fishing with worms from the bank is the best option for land-based fisherman.

Carp: a lot of carp are being caught. Worms, corn and bread from the bank is best. It is a great time for the kids to catch a few fish.

Park news: the roofed accommodation is rather full for November and Christmas period, but there is still some available for mid December.
