Fresh water

Murray Cod - season closure and Trolling ban started 1st August until 31st December.

Callop – Try Cadell, Morgan, Blanchetown, Swan Reach, Mannum and Murray Bridge. With the warmer weather coming soon, the freshwater species should become more prominent. We are still receiving reports of some good fishing at most Murray River regions.

Redfin – Warren Reservoir. (A fishing permit is required.)

Help clean out the carp they make great bait for snapper, mulloway and crabs. Shrimps are hard to find in the cooler weather so try frozen prawns or worms.
