Fish on the bite great news for all

FRESHWATER anglers heading to the 2016 Yellowbelly Fishing Tournament will be pleased to know that the Boondooma Dam venue is fishing better than it has for years.

The catches in the past months have been so good competition spokesman Terry Allwood is predicting that next year's event will set new records in both the long standing gilled and gutted section, as well as in the catch and release.

The competition is one of the richest in Australia with $25,000 in prizes and cash up for grabs.

Profits from the event are used to supplement fishing permit funds from the Queensland Government and to assist in stocking the dam.

So far more than 4.5 million fingerlings have been released into Lake Boondooma.

The annual competition will be held on February 13-14 with entry costs for the event $20 for adults and $5 for juniors aged 16 years and under.

The cost of camping fees and details of accommodation options at the lake can be found by phoning the Lake Boondooma Kiosk on (07) 4168 9694.

Additional information on the local area and past fishing competitions can be found on the Proston Online website prostononline.info
