Murray cod haunts!

At some creeks and rivers, it may seem like there are no fish lurking beneath the water’s surface, when in fact there is! May be small or there may be abundance of brush growing on the banks. Murray cod can usually be found in pools and riffles near undercuts bank, fallen trees, overhanging tree branches, shrubbery and bush evergreens.
Native fish tend to rest at these areas and deep pools throughout the day. They venture out from these favourite havens in early morning and at dusk when there is very little light; or when they feel safe in there surrounds. These are key fishing spots can be found in the foothills, cliff faces and rocky points in or running through public access, reserves and private property. Just remember to use proper fishing etiquette if you wish to fly fish on private property. The best advice I can offer, is to never pass by any small creek or river system if it has shallow water. And if it looks too difficult to cast at, that’s the spot to have a shot at as you may be amazed at the size of the fish living beneath the water! However, there are many small creeks and rivers and lakes where you can fly fish from the water’s edge for Murray cod or Golden perch locally.
