    Little help with winter Bassin'

    Hi all,
    My boy wants to chase some Bass next weekend. I usually go to the upper Brissie River above twin bridges (now not part of the closed season I understand?) but have never gone in this area during winter. I'm not sure whether the river or Maroon Dam would be best this time of year.
    Would the river Bass be holding in the upper river or would they have moved down to the weir trying to get to their spawning spot? Reports indicate Maroon has some schooling Bass in the timber so is it worth the extra drive?
    Thanks in advance.

    You'll still get bass in the river. Maroon is ok too but stay away from Moogerah, a bass comp there on that weekend plus 1/2 the dam is closed off for water ski racing......should be interesting.

    Thanks Mike that's good to hear. We really enjoy fishing the snags along the river bank.

    Bugger! Weather looks ordinary for Saturday as well. Maybe a rethink is required. Thanks for the heads up G2
