Year of change for iconic Moondarra Fishing Classic

2 May 2014 • Media Release   
The Lake Moondarra Fishing Classic; one of Outback Queensland’s most iconic annual events is undergoing somewhat of an overhaul in 2014; holding true to its reputation for diversity.

In its sixteenth year the much loved event will see organisers the Mount Isa Fish Stocking Group face adversity head on in the form of drought and forecast low water levels for Lake Moondarra which the event calls home.

Having never been cancelled in its long running history, organisers decided to take a positive spin on the forecast; living up to their community driven reputation and to reformat the event to allow for any water level.

Speaking on the exciting new format for 2014 and the man tasked with driving the event to success was new Event Manager and ‘Master’ of the Classic, Mr Steve Farnsworth.

“I have been involved with the Fishing Classic since its inception in 1999 as the competition Weigh Master and with the Fish Stocking Group longer than I care to admit.

The Classic is a hugely important event for Mount Isa and the North West and to simply cancel it due to forecasted low water levels just wasn’t something we (Mount Isa Fish Stocking Group) were willing to do”.

“A major fundraising platform for the Group and many community organisations and a major event on the annual tourism and recreational calendar we simply just had to get creative with our program”.

With further details to be released over the coming weeks Steve went on to reveal that the 2014 Lake Moondarra Fishing Classic would be hosted over a revised 2 day format; 6pm Friday October 24 through to 5pm Saturday October 25, with Saturday evening when fishing concludes to include the presentations, live entertainment and all going well the much loved fireworks spectacular.

Still boasting aspects such as camping, beach volleyball, bars, food and of course fishing with thousands of dollars in prizes up for grabs Steve also hinted that with records showing majority of fish traditionally being weighed in between Friday night and Saturday morning 2014 could just be a record year no matter what the fishing format.

More details on the 2014 Lake Moondarra Fishing Classic is available on the events website and social media pages with competitors, spectators and fans encouraged to stay tuned for more news as it unveils.
