Perch active in Leslie Dam

LESLIE DAM: Golden perch at Leslie Dam are still quite active, with several anglers having success over the past week and into the weekend. Most fish are in the deeper water, with the main basin fishing quite well.

Local anglers trolling hard body lures around Cod Alley and the Black Boys also managed a few nice fish.

One family landed six legal-sized golden perch on Sunday afternoon on a Southern Cross Jackass and a Little Ripper. There are still plenty of catfish being landed on worms and some nice golden perch on frozen shrimps near the ski club.

CONNOLLY DAM: Connolly Dam has also been fishing quite well, with some lovely golden perch being landed on both bait and lures.

One local angler fishing from his kayak managed to land several golden perch on TN60 Jackalls while casting the deeper water on the western side of the dam.

Worms accounted for some silver perch, with reports of smaller cod on the move.

RIVERS AND CREEKS: With the warmer weather sticking around for a bit longer, the golden perch in the Condamine River are still fairly active.

One local angler landed two quality golden perch on Saturday morning upstream of the mill hole on spinnerbaits.

Anglers are reporting of some large carp being removed from the river just below the bacon factory.

Anglers fishing around the Pratten area also landed some nice golden perch.

STORM KING DAM: Storm King Dam is fishing well, with locals landing good numbers of golden perch over the past week or so.

Cray tails are working well and at the end of last week it wasn’t too hard to fill your bag limit.

We also received reports of a few smaller Murray cod being landed on spinnerbaits.
