For all of the crazed fishing fanatics out there, we are happy to report that the fish are biting in the Belubula and Lachlan Rivers. Murray Cod season is officially open from December to August and the legal size is 60cm.
Mitchell Skeers, a local from Eugowra caught a fantastic catch yesterday afternoon (photo above). He caught a 12 pound, 73cm Murray Cod on cheese bait. Now we would love to release where he caught this beautiful fish, but we all know a great fisherman never gives away his hot fishing spot.
Mitchell was also using spinner baits and lures but the Cod went straight for the cheese. In total he caught 6 Murray Cod, in duration of 3 hours at about 12pm and was extremely happy with his catch, even though it wasn’t the 1 metre long Cod he had hoped for.
The rivers are flowing with fresh water from Wyangula Dam and the fish are swarming, so if you’re looking for something to do on the weekend, head out to your local river and throw a line in.
