    Wyaralong Dam Natives

    Hi all, we're going out to Wyaralong dam tomorrow and I was wondering if anyone knows what native fish can be found in the region? ie: Rainbow fish/Gudgeons. I do know that they have released 50 000 Bass and soon to stock with Mary River Cod as well.

    Yeah Matt, all the usual natives for this region will be there, but the dam is pretty new so you will probably find one or two species will dominate, probably grudge own of the Hypseleotris genera. They stocked bass this season son will still be too small to keep. Keep your eye out for the noxious carp and tilapia and kill and dispose of any you catch. Let us know how you go.

    Took the family out for a look, great facilities and awesome location, couldn't see much in the dam yet, but went down for a look at the creek at the bottom, plenty of fish in good clear water, too far to identify as we were only on the bridge. Will definitely be making more time to come back here, plenty of great kayak fishing spots here too!

    Don't know much about the Dam but ANGFA members have been down to Teviot Brook for field trips and come back with good reports about rainbows, gudgeons, hardyheads, smelt etc. Adrian did a write up for In-Stream a few years back.

    Hey that's some great info and the photos look awesome, that photo of the valley is now where the dam is. And just a bit of info the dam wall was finished only 25 days before the Jan 2011 floods which apparently filled instantly and saved Logan. There is a time lapse video of it but ya will have to google it.

    The whole catchment is chokas with carp and tilapia
    But saying that there are some pristine pockets left
    If you have an important point to make, don't try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time - a tremendous whack.
