101 Places to Visit and Fish

Eucumbene River Spawning Run

It was autumn 2016 and Nathan, with his CCI under his belt and tuck cast well and truly mastered, was after a double digit fish.  You’ll have to click the link below and read the article to learn whether he did or not.

Suffice to say, this article is exciting stuff with lots of good tips on how to go about it – avoiding the shoulder to shoulder crowds we’ve been seeing.


Burrill Lake – Location Report

Burrill Lake is just south of Ulladulla, and has lots of fishing options nearby. In the immediate vicinity is the lake itself, with some access on the East of the highway to the beach. Ulladulla is just north to access coastal fishing for those with larger boats. Durras and some other options are not too far away for other alternatives.

Our March 2016 outing stayed at the Big4 Bungalow Park in cottages (several members having access to special discounts) which offered comfortable accommodation (no bunks in our case) and private access to boat ramp and some section of lake shore.  There’s even a 24 hour bait dispensing machine!

Ray A undertook a recce for the March event and provided some notes.  Burrill Lake – CAA article

Christmas Island presentation and Location Report

At our March 2016 meeting, Phil (assisted by his wife Kerryn) gave an entertaining and very comprehensive talk on their visit to Christmas Island chasing bonefish last year.  The talk not only provided a view of the nature and results of the fishing, but Phil gave a lot of advice on costs etc.  It is a valuable addition to our “Places to Fish” blog and is essential reading for anyone contemplating.  The links are below:
