Dams provide perfect fishing spots as weather warms up

THE weather is warming up and some of our dams in central parts provide beautiful locations and plenty of fun fishing.

The Callide, Fairbairn and Theresa Creek dams in the Fitzroy and a little further south in the Burnett, Cania Dam and Lake Monduran provide plenty of options.

Our Lake Awoonga has a reputation for big barra.

The Australian bass open season starts at the end of the month. It could be worth a trip before it gets too hot.

Last month the Queensland Government pledged almost $700,000 to restock Queensland dams with fingerlings.

Fisheries Minister John McVeigh said the funding would be distributed through the Stocked Impoundment Permit Scheme.

"Species stocked include barramundi, golden perch, silver perch, Australian bass, Mary River cod, Murray River cod and saratoga," he said.

The Queensland Government have announced funding to purchase more fingerlings for CQ dams.
