Some video from Wappa Dam, Yandina. No fish stocked in this lake to date, but definately worth considering if there's enough local support.

There's that too.  Can go there & cast a line from the shore during daylight hours. Was there until 6pm last night. A nice security gurard came for a friendly chat & gave me some tips about other areas to explore creeks in the region, a nice fella.  :tick

What level of access is most desirable mate? I wonder if anyone has formally (or informally) spoken with SEQWater regarding anything more than the current status quo which was adopted from previous operators?

Sometimes it's as easy as asking, other times not so.

Good place to stock Hutcho's JPs once he gets em sussed... :popcorn)  Apparently the reaches of the Maroochy below were once a known haunt of Junglies targeted by those in the know back in the 70s

Spillway is not very fish friendly though.
Saw a pic of a JP from an urban maroochy tributary caught in 2009 Jim.

A good idea Jim. Haven't spoken with Hutcho for a bit, not sure where he's up to.... probably looking for more funding I'm guessing.  :-X

There's still the odd Junglie in the area if you put in the hardies to find them. I'm normally open with locations, but in this case these unicorns need to be protected.
