Greetings forumites,

I am meeting friends (hi D & D) around the Albury area for the weekend of the 19/20 March. I am trying to determine places and things to do. One spot that caught my interest was Lake Mulwala.

Anyone been there? What is the camping/fishing like?

Are there other places you would recommend?

We are hoping to find somewhere that will not be too crowded.

Thanks for your time.

Hi Earvin, can't help with some where to go, but any where there is water (in Victoria that is) just remember Duck seasons opens in Victoria that weekend.

Cheers

Am heading for Yarrawonga tomorrow for a few days. I know the camping along the banks of the Murray east of Yarrawonga is great, but few facilities. A couple of pit toilets here and there and mostly bush camping. Father in-law caught a 43CM Yellow Belly during the week, but I don't know the exact location. At least I don't yet! Will try and post more up to date info during the week if I can get onto the net. Looking at power options for the computer.

Hey Hacksaw,

Not real concerned about lack of facilities, bush camping is definitely our preference.

Was the Yellowbelly caught from the bank or boat? If you do find out anymore info I would love to hear about it.

Cheers

Camping will certainly be to your liking then. From memory fires are permitted weather permitting of course and dogs are allowed. The Yellow Belly was caught from the bank.

EJ,

There are several camp spots around Lake Mulwala an ideal spot is a place called "Kiffins" it's on the NSW side of the lake about 8-10 k's from the bridge at Yarrawonga,ask any local where kiffins is and you'll be right. Maps are available of the lake from numerous places, Caravan parks,tackle shops etc.

Mulwala is the Murray Cod Capital of Australia as far as numbers would go, more MC would be caught there than anywhere else. There are strict size limits on MC 50cm is your minimum also please remember that MC numbers arn't what the use to be so any big fish (75cm plus) are the breeders so good calmer would be to release any big fish, just take a picture. imo.......... :-)

If you do camp at Kiffins, grab yourself some surface lures (available in town) and cast them onto the lake after sundown, slowly retrieve and hold ya breath, a surface strike from a MC on a quiet night will give the old ticker a test.

Happy Days..............Browny

Thanks Browny,

I will ensure I pack some surface lures. I have yet to fish for Murray Cod so I am looking forward to it.

We are on the same wave length re: catch and release, especially when the numbers are down. All of my bass fishing is catch and release.

Cheers

Hey,
Hope it's not too late, but I just checked out a camp site today. It's a few Km west of Yarrawonga toward Cobraham. Turn right into Bruces Rd and follow it down to the park entrance. Not far through the entrance there is a sign to Zinettis Beach 1 or 2. Both offer ample bush camping for a large set up or vans. My pick would be #2 as it seems a little quieter. GPS coords would be S35 58.194/E145 56.122. Only fish on the bite this afternoon were Carp though.

Whatever you decide, hope you have a great trip.

Hacksaw.

PS: Camp fires are allowed on the Vic side of the river, not on the NSW side and a NSW fishing licence is required for the river.
