Golden Perch biting well on the Southern Downs

GOLDEN Perch and Murray Cod have been abundant in Southern Downs dams and rivers over the past week.

LESLIE DAM

There were a few legal-sized Murray cod landed over the weekend, with reports coming in from several anglers.

These fish were landed on both bait and lures. We received reports of some quality golden perch being landed also.

The bait anglers are having good results on live and frozen shrimps.

Anglers trolling hard body lures had more success than previous weeks, with one local family landing 10 golden perch and one legal Murray cod on Sunday afternoon.

There were plenty legal-sized catfish landed from the bank on worms.

RIVERS AND CREEKS:

The Condamine River continues to fish well, with several anglers reporting on legal sized golden perch being landed during the week.

We received numerous reports of golden perch being landed in the town area again this week, on both lures and bait.

Anglers fishing between Murray's Bridge and Killarney had good results on spinnerbaits.

We also received reports from one angler trolling downstream of the Scots Weir.

He managed to land two golden perch and a small Murray cod on a purple Southern Cross lure.
