THE Boondooma Dam Fish Stocking and Management Association is confident that the weather will be great for this year’s Yellowbelly Fishing Competition.
The water quality is good and the dam is fishing at its best since recent record flood events. Boondooma is at 71%.
The 2015 competition is scheduled for February 7 and 8 and the camping area managers have done a great job to ensure the camping area and facilities are ready for the expected big crowd.
Prizes and lucky draws are available for competitors.
