Hi guys,
Was wondering if i could ask those who have been there for some info on trying to catch a bass out of the dam. Never done bass fishing before but was thinking it would be fun early and late evening inbetween 4wding.

Any tips on what to use to try and catch one of these buggers? Also some nice tracks around the area if you would. Im introducing a new 4wd'er with his new hilux, so Im sure he will not want it scratched ...YET !!!!!

Thanks in advanced guys.

Certainly plenty of bass there although they grow to a more modest size that most dams.A good lure for evening fishing is a buggar chug,less that ten bucks at Kmart and a proven bass catcher everywhere. Bait such as shrimps or black crickets is also deadly on bass. Canoes or small boats with an electric motor are also allowed if you can carry it to the water.Flatrock near by also has stocking of bass.

Hi ange, we use a lure called a jitterbug,you will probably have to get these from your local tackle store though.They are about $16 ea approx.They are a surface lure and are the most exciting way to catch bass.
If you have a canoe,paddle along the shoreline early morn ,or just on sunset,and throw in to and around the logs and snags on the bank,retrieve slowly and you will see the bass,come up from underneath the surface and smash your lure to stunn it.To them,it looks like a cicada,sometimes they will hit it with their tail as well.Best fun you can have in an afternoon.If you are heading to nowra call in to Mc Callums sports store and pick up some lures,Gav ,john and the team will gladly help on any fishing info on the dam as well.Cheers and good luck.

When ya get to Nowra Vince,head west along Albatross rd,TR just after Nowra Subaru,and follow the signs to Burrier/Danjera Dam.The road to the dam will turn off to the left just before burrier.Good luck.If you do get hooked on bass fishing ,get someone to drop you off with a canoe at Tallowa dam, and get picked up at Burrier pumping station 3 days later,great scenery and fishing.

Ok ...Thankyou all for the great info. Itis much apreciated indeed. I am looking forward to the trip mainly because im introducing some new people to 4wding and at the same time i figured why not try some bass fishing rather than just climb rocks all weekend. Make it interesting for the them its not all about driving rough tracks.

So thansk again guys...and ladies :-)
