Just to show that there is more than carp for fishing around Canberra.

What’s Your opinion?

I see they are doing a bit of work on the bidgee between Bredbo and NSW with ACTEW and DII and a few others

that is, Bredbo and Casuarina sands

So where does a person go these days in and around Canberra for a relaxing day fishing? I used to drive up to Eaucumbene and Adaminiby but am at a point now where I think I just need something close to wet a line.

Suggestions please

@RatsNest
the reason why Ginninderra is so bad because tams doesnt clean the Giralang storm water drain catchment enuff or the other ones!
The water in the catchment for giralang pond is like oil black and smells really bad.
its been blocked up for many months the water from that pond pretty much floods the main lake everytime it rains alot.

Agreed. The smell of the local lakes alone should tell you that. Ginninderra seems to smell worse and worse every time I go there. Shudder at the thought of anyone eating anything from it.

Biggest we caught in the early 90’s was a 60 pound Murray cod in the Murrumbidgee only 5 mins or so drive from Hall. Have caught heaps of trout in the Brindies and surrounds and plenty of natives in the Lakes. Would be really good if they open up the new cotter dam to fishing instead of locking it up like Corin and the others. There is a good stock of trout in Corin Dam you only have to drive up there and look at the amount of fish rising at sunset.

He wants everyone to know all native fish were returned to the water without having “carked it when he saw a bloke wearing those white sunnies”

fantastic swag of fish and shows there are good fish to be had around the canberra region. Cant wait to get into them myself 🙂

Saying that, if you intend to be humane and eat it, that’s how it is too.

Hells_Bells74 10:15 am 18 Nov 09

Oh Buzz, sorry the fish probably carked it when he saw a bloke wearing those white sunnies 😉

I too hope it went back and was I supposed to watch the video box to see what type of fish that was? I have no idea anymore, my man caught one at the Cotter in Autumn when we were camping and it looked impressive like a trout (prob 25/30cms), that’s what we called it anyhow. We of course put it back in the water, but not before fishy collided with a light-steel camping chair first, seemed to still swim away quickly though and I made him kiss it better first (after he wouldn’t kiss it initially, Go Rexxy & my ex hub) hehe.

And the smell after fishing for the day around LBG – two shower material.

Up the ‘bidgee a little further between Canberra and Burrinjuck is much nicer although black mountain peninsula is normally closer and cheaper by cab if (like me) you’re a drinking man without a DD.

Did you kiss it & put it back? It was probably the last of its species around here.
