Big Murray Cod caught near Hughes Creek

6 February 2020


We don’t want to make outrageous statements BUT Nagambie is fishing as good as it ever has with most fishos coming away with a cod or two in the bag…and decent cod at that. Here’s the lay of the land for you.

Here are the top spots for the last two weeks fishing the Goulburn River in and around Nagambie.


A lot of Murray Cod between 50 to 65cm are coming in from between Chinamans Bridge and Mitchellstown Bridge. Flick surface lures or spinnerbaits into the lagoons around the lily pads.


Reports coming in that the Mitchellstown side of the lake is doing all the damage at the moment. Chris Galea getting a 92 model of the top with Stump Jumper.

Off the boardwalk, you’re in with a decent chance of Reddies, Yellowbelly and smaller cod in town. Stick to worms and small yabbies.


Kirwans Bridge Yellas have a big appetite at the moment particularly around the reed beds and overhanging willow trees..plenty of yellowbelly schools hiding out waiting.


Below the weir, Murchison East through to Arcadia is fishing really well. The river is looking reasonably clear, nice height and isn’t flowing too quickly. Casting spinnerbaits in around the timber is producing the good. These trees are holding big numbers of shrimp, so the cod are hanging around too.
