    Fishing spots near Warwick

    Hi All,

    Over the coming long weekend here in QLD, we're off camping on a farm 20 mins from Warwick.

    While the kids are off feeding the cows, we'd like to get in a bit of fishing. Are there any spots nearby? What fish species could we target?

    We've never been up that way before so any info much appreciated.

    Several dams nearby and the creek that runs through town has a reasonable number of fish to be played with. Google earth will give you lots of options.

    There are old stories about Rainbow trout releases in Spring Creek which is very close to you......I heard from a very reputable source that they still exist in the upper reaches about 8 years ago......I hope they survived the drought back then.

    Thanks Tunaticer, we'll take the fly rods with a bit of a flick around.

    Any idea what other fish species we come across?

    @ tunaticer,

    Rainbow trout? I could be wrong but dont they like colder waters like that of the snowies, lake Jindabyne, I'm aware there is a rainbow trout farm in Tumut, NSW and another possibly in Armidale - New England Region (I think).

    Sorry no trout around Warwick. You might find some around Tenterfield, lived in and around Warwick last 40 years haven't heard of trout being caught.

    I have caught small rainbows at a spot near Warwick although that was about 7 years ago so not too sure if they are still there.

    @ kell66,

    Yep, I'm sure there is down Tenterfield way, its a bit cooler.


    Probably big floods would have washed them away i.e. if there were any remaining.

    @ nathank92,

    Carp everywhere, I reckon there should be more regular carp buster programmes throughout the year for these pests.
