Title: Yellowbelly(Golden Perch)
Post by: rdhiggins on December 30, 2011, 12:11:03 PM
Does anyone know of any good fishing spots to catch Yellowbelly around the Emerald area that could be suitable for camping as well?

I can't remember if you're allowed to camp on the town common at Emerald, if not there is caravan parks there.

There's are a couple of weirs in Emerald, I know you can fish boat on the bottom one, not sure about the top weir; you may need to seek the good graces of a property owner; Pilly (http://www.sweetwaterfishing.com.au/Forum/index.php?action=profile;u=245) will know.

There's yellowbelly throughout the Fitzroy River catchment, including the Nogoa River through Emerald.

I've camped at the Bedford Weir (MacKenzie River) near Blackwater, caught yellowbelly & saratoga there.
