Rory’s top catch

Southern Riverina news - - BULLETIN BOARD -

A sunny morn­ing was the perfect back­drop for 62 keen young an­glers who turned out to the Jer­ilderie Kids Fish­ing Day on Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 15.

A to­tal of 13 fish were caught from Jer­ilderie Lake in­clud­ing four carp, four yel­low belly and five cat­fish.

Jer­ilderie Fish­ing Club pres­i­dent An­drew Bell said they were blessed with kind weather.

‘‘It was a nice day for a fish and the kids had a great time. Usu­ally we have a lower num­ber of en­trants so to have as many as we did, we’re very happy about that.

‘‘No-one re­ally knew there were cat­fish in the lake, so I was quite sur­prised that five were caught.’’

The over­all win­ner on the day was Rory Knight, who man­aged to land a 48cm yel­low belly.

The next major Jer­ilderie Fish­ing Club event will be the re­lease of 8000 cod in the Bil­l­abong Creek in De­cem­ber.

Zara and Stella Wil­liams with a 61cm carp caught dur­ing the com­pe­ti­tion.
