    I used corn kernals as bait, 1.0 long shank chemically sharpened Mustard Hook, 4Lb line, no sinker and simply dropped the line in 2 meters from the bank.

    Re: The Milky Condamine

    Hi All,
    well back from tyhe bush, trying to get back into work and stuff. I have not done a full report yet but here are some pics of the wier and river. Water was clearing slowly but still murky, temp on surface was high between 22 -24c so fishing was slow. We did manage a feed with a dozen or so yellows and one good cod 75cm. Two carp for the week plus 2 catties and one very stupid turtle. The river was still flowing only just but heaps of small fry in the river, give it a couple of seasons and the place will be rock'n.
    Cheers

    Anyone catching yellas or cos in the Condy. Love to see some pics.

    Going out to the Barcoo and Coopers Creek next weekend to fish for yellas. 4 - 5 days relaxing by those grand old streams . The camping will be great fun in itself.

    Cheers

    Re: The Milky Condamine

    Interested to know if there's any fishing in the river near Warwick? Up there the other day and the river through town has some nice looking spots but muddy water. Then some other parts that looked almost stagnant. Anyone tossed a line in near town or towards Killarney. Am going to retire there and am reasonably familiar with the dams but not the river.

    Re: The Milky Condamine

    Sorry cant help there Grumpah seems like not much fishing happening or not many fishos on ausfish at present to report their catches. Im off to the Coopers and the Barcoo on Sunday to experience yellowbelly fishing in those real inland rivers

    Cheers

    Re: The Milky Condamine

    Dont let the stagnet water fool you. Quite a few years back, we went down to the condermine delow Cecil plains. The water was green as and only ponds around 50 meters long. When we threw the lure across and you could see the yellas push a bow wave to the splash of the lure. We caught around half a dozen or so before they went off the bite. I wouldnt eat them as they were full of sores and were in poor condition. It also proves that the more noise you make, the sooner they go off the bite.
    We would walk up to the next hole and same again. We had a great time and caught about 20 yellas. And this was done in the middle of the day in the middle of summer. 40 degrees and a carton of stubbies later, we went home after a big day pouring concrete earlier in the day.

    Re: The Milky Condamine

    My brother John and I went out to the Coopers last wek and the water there was pretty muddy too, although I think these waters are pretty much like this all year round. We caught heaps of small yellas, Barcoo grunter and a catfish that some guys were calling butter jew, very small eyes and little mouth right underneath, not like the catfish or jew further east. No sign of big yellas, not one over 32cm.

    But we had a great camp etc and enough fish to eat while there.
    So not too sure why the bigger fish were absent, we were visted by the local cop one evening and he told us he has confiscated 30 nets in 5 years since he had been there, all of them out of the water. Also told us he investigated one camp too late and found 200 yella frames on the bank in one spot. Unbelievable!

    So the milky western rivers get a hammering no matter which way you look at it. And now people are pushing to plant cotton in the channel country....heaven help us!
