Coolmunda Dam / Lake Coolmunda - Inglewood. Qld

Situated 13 Km east of Inglewood on the Cunningham Highway lies Coolmunda Dam. Constructed in 1968 for irrigation & town water, the lake holds 75 000 ML of water at 100% capacity at an average depth of 4.3 m and has a surface area of 1 740 ha.

Thanks to the tireless efforts of the local fish stocking group, Coolmunda is stocked with Murray Cod, Yellowbelly and Silver Perch. There are naturally occuring populations of Tandans (eel tailed catfish) and Spangled Perch. The recent dicovery of European carp in Coolmunda is a concern. One carp was found with a hook through it's back so there is not much doubt about how they arrived.
There is an annual fishing competition here, see the Events Calendar for details.

There are no boating restrictions here but caution is advised when travelling around the lake by boat due to the standing timber.

A Stocked Impoundment Permit (SIP) is required to fish at Coolmunda Dam.
