Barmah - Fishing Feb 19’

Postby jakeoss123 » Sat Dec 29, 2018 9:39 am

Hey guys,

Not so much a fishing report but more so a question for the locals around the Barmah - Echuca area.

Heading up from Warrnambool in Feb next year and am thinking of settling along the river near Barmah for a few days fishing as I’ve never been along that part of the Murray, normally I go to Murrabit for a bit of fishing.

Just wondering if it’s a good time of year to fish in Feb? and what I might expect to catch? And if there are spots you could recommend for the first time?

Any feedback and advice would be greatly appreciated legends! Cheers. :a_goodjob:

I am not local but I suggest you do as suggested by others...check maps for access. As for what fish, me thinks it would be the standard Murray Darling Basin species. Murray cod, yellowbelly, carp, Silver perch and Trout cod. The last two species are protected so make sure you know how to ID them if you are not experienced with them.

Expect the river to be high and flowing fast!!! Also, welcome to the site.
