The Isisford Barcoo Recreational Fishing Club invites you to their annual fishing competition on 28-30 July – this month!
This fantastic event happens each year on the banks of the Barcoo River at the good old Oma Waterhole. It’s the place to be, so plan a trip for the last full weekend of July. Bring your family, friends or whoever wants to come along, join in on the fun and try and catch the longest yellowbelly, or just lay back and enjoy the scenery.
It’s a two day competition, starting at 10am Saturday and finishing 11am Sunday. You can fish all day and all night until your heart’s content. You can fish through the Saturday night, as long as you bring the fish up to be measured alive. The club encourages competitors to catch and release, so fish numbers can replenish after the competition.
If you arrive early before the competition, nominations are taken on Friday afternoon at the control point from 1pm to 6pm and then they start again on Saturday morning around 7.30am. Friday night is a meet and greet; the bar will be opened and NRL football televised on the big screen at the Yellowbelly Bar.
