hi all, thank you for all the info on catching yabbies!! Will certainly give our opera houses another go -the dry dog food sounds like a good idea! (and check re licenses etc.)
Just have to find the little buggas!!!

Thanks Tim&jan - we are heading towards Innaminka from the south, so are hoping it will be warmer than here (south of Adelaide)!!

Might try a bit of wild animal for bait!!

Don't know about other states, but yabby traps of any sort are illegal in NSW freshwater waterways

Fisheries Port Stephens 02 4982 1311

We were going camping at Gloucester Tops (Barrington Tops NP) and wanted to know if there were any regulations on catching the spiney crayfish in the Gloucester River - rang NPs and surprise surprise they didn't even know the yabbies lived there - so we rang Fisheries.

No yabby traps of any sort in NSW freshwater - not to protect yabby numbers, rather, to protect platypus.

We got a couple of yabbies, but I reckon the plain old smooth shelled yabbies taste twice as good.
