LESLIE Dam continues to fish well this week, while Moogerah Dam remains a little quiet.

 

LESLIE DAM

 Leslie Dam continues to fish well, with several reports of golden perch being landed on bait in the latter part of the weekend.

One angler reported on landing his bag limit on Saturday afternoon on shrimp.

There were also quite a few golden perch landed on lures, with most landed in 6m-9m of water.

Blades and Jackall TN60s are working well on the fish in the deeper water.

Anglers fishing in the main basin are still seeing the best results.

 

COOLMUNDA DAM

Coolmunda remains fairly consistent, with one Inglewood angler landing some nice fish while trolling Little Rippers along the creek bed.

We received reports of some nice golden perch and silver perch being landed in the deeper water.

MOOGERAH DAM / MAROON DAM

Moogerah remains a little quiet, with only a few reports coming in.

One angler managed to land nice bass on Friday morning on plastics.

Anglers trolling tight through the timber are also landing a few nice fish in the deeper water (approximately 5 to 7 metres).

A local angler reported landing a few nice bass in the gorge while using spinnerbaits.

He was casting the spinnerbaits hard on the rock edge and letting them sink.

 

RIVERS AND CREEKS

The Condamine River has been a little slower than previous weeks, with not too many reports coming in from anglers.

There were a few golden perch landed at Murrays Bridge on a mixture of lures and bait.

We also received reports of a few smaller golden perch being landed near the Lyndhurst Ln bridge.

Water clarity remains an issue, particularly around Pratten. However, one local angler managed three golden perch on Sunday afternoon from his kayak on a purple Southern Cross hard body.

There was a massive 60cm golden perch landed in the Ballandean area on a Jackall TN60.
