Isisford Fishing Competition 2024

The Isisford Barcoo Recreational Fishing Club invites you to its annual fishing competition on the banks of the Barcoo River at the Oma Waterhole.

This year’s Isisford Fishing Competition will be held on the weekend of July 26-28, 2024.

The event starts at 10am on Saturday and finishes 11am on Sunday, and competitors can fish all day and all night if they wish.

The only requirement is that the fish be measured alive.

Nominations are taken on Friday afternoon at the control point from 1pm to 6pm and start again on Saturday morning at about 7.30am.

The Friday night entertainment will include football televised on the big screen at the control point, raffles and the bar will be open.

Categories are adult and junior, and eligible species are yellowbelly, black bream, and catfish.

Nomination fees are $30 for adults and $10 for juniors.

The Isisford Fishing Competition is on July 26-28, 2024 and competitors can fish all day and all night if they wish.

 

And you don’t have to catch a fish to be in the running – your name goes into the draw automatically for both major and smaller prizes.

This year features a new category, the Lake Eyre Basin rangers environmental award ‘Most invasive species caught’, sponsored exclusively by Longreach Tourist Park.

The award will be given to the person who catches the most of these invasive species – sleepy cod, red claw and gambusia (also known as mosquitofish) – the most can include either all of one species or a combination of these.

And the Barcoo River Rats have included a team competition for teams of five.

The team must be registered, with each team member registering their chosen fish.

Once measured, that team member cannot enter any other fish.

The winning team will be determined by the total length of the five fish measured.

It all starts on Saturday, with nominations, displays, raffles and merchandise, and food vans and the bar will be available over the whole weekend.
