Report 19/9/14

Post by subeditor » Fri Sep 19, 2014 10:02 am

Current discharge: 1984 ML per day.
Water level current: 84.8 %
Current inflow: 3944 ML per day.
Water level: 10/09/14 82.4 %
Water visibility: Up to 1m
Rain last 7 days: 2 mm
Forecast Weather: Mostly sunny for the weekend. Temperatures between 1-19°C with light breeze Saturday and up to 13km Sunday afternoon.
New Moon = 24 September, Full Moon = 8 October
Water Temperature: 14 -18.5°C

Murray Cod: Closed Season. The DPI have released the details on rule changes which will come into force on 3 November 2014. The main change concerning Murray cod is the reduction in the size of the fish you will be allowed to keep. The minimum size remains at 60 cm. The maximum size you will be allowed to keep is now 80cm. Maximum 2 per day and 4 in possession. Trophy-sized cod can still be targeted but must be released immediately. This will effect some fishing competitions. You can find more info at the DPI Web site.

Yellow Belly: Some better news this week. We had a few cracking yellas, up to 57cm, caught by bait fishers from the bank in the park. The bait being used has been mainly worms with the big one being taken on a yabby.
Finally some joy for the lure fisherman further up river as I predicted last week. The water down stream of Good Hope resort and above Shaws was giving up good numbers of yellas for those in the know. Trolling Crank Baits and small hardbodies did the trick. Look for the higher water temperatures without going right up into shallow bays were the carp tend to congregate. I gave this area a go on Monday and found warmer water around 16.5°C which rose to 18.5°C in the afternoon. I located schools of fish out in 18m+ of water hanging over the tops of submerged trees holding at between 3-6m. The fish are still not overly active. I managed to entice one nice 45 cm fish out of a tree with a cast spinnerbait bumping through the limbs. Another was taken on a trolled no. 2 purple Stump Jumper, again from the top of the trees and a 3rd hit was recorded on a cast mask vibe. I worked the same area for several hours to get those 3 hits. Trusting what I was seeing on my structure scan sounder kept me interested.
Redfin: Reddies remain very quiet. No reports this week at all.
Carp: Another rule change will be a strictly regulated pilot program to allow bow fishing for carp. I’m not sure if Burrinjuck is to be included in the pilot program. This would certainly be a great initiative that could spawn into bow fishing only comps.
Trout: No reports. Another rule change effecting trout fisherman is the halving of daily bag limits to 5 fish and 10 in possession.
