FISHING REPORT - 18/11/2014

LESLIE DAM: Leslie Dam fished quite well early on Saturday morning before the windy conditions started.  A local angler reported on landing some nice fish while casting Jackalls at the structure.  There were plenty quality Golden Perch landed  late last week, mainly on hard body lures and blades.  Live shrimps and salt water yabbies also worked well for the bait anglers.

MOOGERAH DAM / MAROON DAM: The Bluefin Lake Maroon Fish Classic was held last week.  From all reports it was another successful event with competitors landing some nice fish.  The weather conditions  were a bit harsh at times but everyone seemed to have an enjoyable weekend.  There was a lot of boat traffic at Moogerah due to this fishing competition at Maroon.  Anglers seemed to manage to pick up a few nice Bass up in the more sheltered areas.

RIVER AND CREEKS: Our local rivers and creeks continue to fish well.  However, the windy conditions over the weekend didn't do any favours for the fisherman.  There were still some nice Golden Perch landed in and around the Warwick town area.  The annual Warwick Carp Fishing Competition was held on the Condamine River on Sunday morning.  There were in excess of 100 registrations with approximately nine of these pests being removed from the river.  A big thank you must go to the organisers and supporters of this event.
