Easter for many means getting away on a camping and fishing trip, and what better place to do both than at the Muddy Water Classic fishing competition at Moura from April 7-9, 2023.
Always a great weekend of fun, fishing and mixing with friends.
Run by the Moura Fish Stocking Group that, with the support of district and community, holds this awesome event at the Apex Park on the Dawson River, on the western side of Moura.
Camp in the shaded grassy camp area and enjoy dollar-coin operated hot and cold showers at the facilities block.
Activities kick off on Thursday 7 April with an outdoor movie, which is as popular with adults as it is with kids – so bring your chair, sit back and relax.
Nominate to fish or to be in the running for one of the two lots of major senior and junior lucky draws.
Nominations are $20 for seniors and $10 for juniors.
There are meals – breakfast, lunch and snacks – and refreshments available, and everyone’s favourite… the ice cream truck!
Joining us is the barefoot fisho Dave ‘Hodgie’ Hodge, who will entertain and amaze you with his casting skills, plus share and chat with you about his fishing tips and techniques.
From a fishing perspective, while the river has had its ups and downs with water flow, it has settled to a good level now – not far under the weir – and you can navigate a long way upstream.
Remember, there is a lot of timber about and care is required for submerged stumps.
The water clarity is quite clear for the Dawson River, and saratoga and yellowbelly have been very active.
Last year we introduced the catching of a tagged saratoga worth $1000.
This year, there are two tagged saratoga worth $1000 each when caught.
Happy fishing and we can’t wait to see you there.
