Lake Gregory (Isis Balancing Storage) - Childers / Bundaberg. Qld

LAKE Gregory, also known as the Isis Balancing Storage or simply as the "Duckpond" is a small impoundment between Bundaberg & Childers. It is a mere 200 ha in area with an average depth of 3.1 meters & holds just over 6000 ML of water at full capacity. Access is via the Isis Highway turning into Voss Road and finally turning right into the dirt track when you seen the small pump shed.

Officially stocked with only Bass & Silver Perch, several captures of Saratoga & Tarpon have been reported. Being a shallow lake, weed beds dominate the fringes and can be a menace to anglers although there are some deeper sections up to 30 feet, namely across from the gravel boat ramp.
