The water temps have been slowly dropping over the past few weeks in the South Burnett as winter well and truly moves in
It’s been an interesting month of fishing in the two South Burnett dams … with the slight influx of water and the cooler weather setting in, there’s been a lack of consistent fishing as the water and season settles.
The South Burnett Regional Council has assured visitors they will continue to enjoy “wonderful experiences” at Bjelke-Petersen and Boondooma dams, despite the upcoming departure of the current managers.
Boondooma and Lake Barambah have seen a small influx of water from some great rain recently.
Our two dams have seen some much-needed water flows over the past month, and while it wasn’t a huge amount, it’s still been enough to lift the water levels and keep the fish active.
The Christmas and New Year holiday crowds have come and gone but the fishing has remained consistent, with both South Burnett dams fishing well despite the low water levels.
Summer is a great time of year to be outdoors with family and friends and it’s also the best time of year to be on the water.
Authorities are urging visitors to dams and lakes to play it safe this summer in the wake of a number of recent incidents.
The hot weather and afternoon storm build-ups are creating some awesome opportunities for big Bass and Yellowbelly
Last year’s record roll-up of 1003 anglers to the Boondooma Dam Yellowbelly Fishing Competition could be beaten in 2018.
It’s a good feeling to know that summer is finally on its way. The water temperatures in both dams are rising considerably during the day, which makes for some pretty intense fishing at times.
Another cracking month of fishing has gone by since my last report … the lake edges and deeper flats have really come alive with some cracking fish caught at BP and Boondooma.
The State Government has launched an advertising campaign to warn anglers not to use supermarket prawns as bait in an effort to prevent the spread of white spot and other foreign diseases
Yallakool/Lake Boondooma manager Corey Goldie and fishing columnist Matthew Langford were placed equal fifth in the Bass Nation Australian Team Championships at the weekend
Spring is finally here and it’s a time of year I always look forward to, because it’s a great time for anglers to be on the water.
The fishing hasn’t changed considerably in the South Burnett region since the onset of winter, with some cracking catches of our native fish being recorded.
The winter weather is now in full swing and it’s about time too! It’s been unseasonably warm this year and the fish have been sitting deeper than usual.
With the unseasonably warm weather hanging around for quite some time the cold weather gear hadn’t had to make much of an appearance until lately.
It’s been an interesting month of fishing in the impoundments of the South Burnett.
Boondooma and Lake Barambah have had an influx of water from Tropical Cyclone Debbie.
Levels are getting quite low in our two dams, but that’s not stopping the fish from biting and the anglers leaving with smiles on their faces.
While February temperature records were being smashed all around the South Burnett over the weekend, the Boondooma Dam Fish Stocking Association was breaking a record of its own.
