EWEN MADDOCK DAM (Sunshine Coast Qld)

FISHING
Ewen Maddock Dam is stocked with Australian Bass, Golden Perch, Silver Perch, Mary River Cod and Saratoga. There are naturally breeding populations of Tandans (Eel Tailed Catfish), Spangled Perch and Eels.
 
CAMPING
There is no public camping area at Ewen Maddock Dam. However there is camping facilities with Wildeco Adventure Camp for groups, corporate and sporting events. Bookings are essential.

BOATING
Fishing is restricted to bank angling or paddle/wind powered canoes, kayaks or boats. No combustion or electric motors are permitted on Ewen Maddock Dam.
There is a gravel launching area between the water intake tower and the spillway.
Other access points are provided at the western end of the saddle dam and to the north west along Mooloolah Connection Rd.
No propeller driven vessels should be used here due to the noxious weed, Cabomba. Propellers cause the weed to break up and spread rapidly.

FACILITIES
A childrenís play ground, toilets, picnic tables, walking, horse and bike trails and gravel launching areas are provided with future planned construction work set to enhance current facilities which are under coinstruction.

HISTORY
Ewen Maddock Dam was built in 1973 across the Addlington Creek, a tributary of the Mooloolah River to supply town water for the fast growing community of the region. It is one of the smaller dams on the Sunshine Coast with a surface area of 370 hectares and holds approximately 16 500 megalitres and has an average depth of about four and a half metres. The damís proximity is about 5 kilometres east of the country town of Mooloolah. The dam consists of weed beds, lilypads and sedge weed on the outer perimeters of the dam with the many Melaleuca trees also lining the outskirts of the somewhat clear tanned water.

STOCKING GROUP
Ewen Maddock Fish Management Inc. is a newly formed fish management group of like minded sport fishing people whose principal goals are to see the Ewen Maddock Dam become a prominent sport fishing impoundment on the Sunshine Coast and a destination for anglers to catch large native fish as well as promoting recreational fishing.
