Fishing Report 12/9/2017

LESLIE DAM: Anglers at Leslie Dam are landing some quality Golden Perch, with a few fish being landed up to 47cm in length.  Numbers haven’t been great but this should improve with the warmer weather on its way.  Afternoons are fishing the best, with most fish being landed just on dark.  Frozen shrimps and saltwater yabbies continue to see results for the bait fishermen.  Anglers reported on several smaller Murray Cod on the move, with these fish falling to both lures and bait.

CONNOLLY DAM: Connolly Dam hasn’t seen much change from previous weeks.  Anglers reported on some Golden and Silver Perch being landed a long the eastern bank on bait.  Anglers reported on a few fish also being landed on lures.  Spinnerbiats, TN Jackalls and smaller hard body divers all landed fish.  Angler also reported on some big Catfish being landed on worms.

RIVERS AND CREEKS: The Condamine River saw some solid Golden Perch landed on the western side of Warwick.  Spinnerbaits continue to work the best for the lure anglers.  Anglers fishing with bait also had success downstream of Scots Weir and around the Mill Hole.  Anglers fishing in the Pratten area also trolled up a few better sized Golden Perch over the weekend.


The Vibe is a vibration style lure which is available in three sizes in the Semi-Hardz range. Perfectly balanced, the Semi-Hardz Vibe will sink horizontally, meaning any movement of the rod tip will have it swimming instantly. Designed for offshore, impoundment and estuary use, the lure has been tested extensively on species such as snapper, bass and bream. Barra will also find it irresistible. The lure is designed to be cast and allowed to sink and fished with long and purposeful lifts of the rod tips which will see it swim with a tight wobble attracting a variety of species. The lure sinks slowly and is capable of being fished in a wide range of situations and is built extra tough with a heavy duty wire running through the lure, insuring you stay connected with your prey, while the life-like feel of the Semi-Hardz will keep fish coming back again and again.

New size now available: 110mm.

LESLIE DAM: There was a slight increase on fish numbers from last week, with a few better quality fish being landed.  There was a lovely 75cm Murray Cod landed midweek from the bank on a saltwater yabby.  Anglers targeting Golden Perch landed a few nice fish in the main basin on blades and saltwater yabbies.  We also received reports of a Golden and Silver Perch being landed from the bank on worms, between the Ski Club and the concrete boat ramps.
CONNOLLY DAM: Anglers at Connolly Dam are reporting on things remaining fairly consistent, with a few Golden and Silver Perch being landed from the bank on crays, saltwater yabbies and shrimps.  Spinnerbaits seem to be working the best for the lure anglers, with the bigger fish being landed on

RIVERS AND CREEKS: Anglers fishing the Condamine River commented on a few more smaller Golden Perch being landed in the town area on both bait and lures.  Spinnerbaits are seeing the best results for the lure anglers.  We received reports of some nice Golden Perch being landed in the Mill Hole, Scots Weir and Lyndhurst Lane Bridge.  We received reports of a few legal sized Golden Perch and an undersized Murray Cod to the east of Warwick.  Don’t forget to release your Murray Cod unharmed as it is now CLOSED SEASON.
