Murray Cod: Closed season

Yellow Belly: Due to the flooding rains over the past few weeks the fishing reports have been few and far between. Last weekend we did have some sunshine and the fishermen started to appear. The edge bite with worms & small yabbies or shrimp, if you can find them, is producing the best results. The shallows at Scrubby Flats has started to liven up as has the yass river arm with a few reports filtering in from the Woolgarlo end. A couple of good reports of yellows hitting trolled lures hard is encouraging. The biggest fish this week on the catch sheet was a 52 cm taken on a Yabbie followed by a 49cm on a Viking lure. The yellows would normally be biting well at the top end of Burrinjuck by mid- September however this year’s rainfall and inflows has thrown everything out of whack. Redfin: There are a few fish still being caught around the edges on worms and the odd fish taking a lure. The redfin will also start to school up as the water warms. Late spring we will start to see the big numbers of redfin on the catch sheets

School holidays start this weekend so bring the family down to see the dam at 100% the waterfalls continue to run all around the dam as well as several on the way in on Burrinjuck road.

The new commercial tour boat has finally arrived. The “NV Getaway” will seat 12 passengers and 2 crew for trips across Burrinjuck Dam to the caves, tours of the dam and to ferry the Hume & Hovell walkers across the lake. We have submitted paperwork to NSW maritime and are awaiting a permit to operate before we hit the water. I am also seeking a second skipper with a coxswain certificate and a qualified general purpose hand to operate the vessel on a casual basis, interested persons who live close by can call 02 62278114 with their details.
