Golden Perch

Golden Perch, also known as yellowbelly, callop, perch, Murray Perch or white perch, naturally inhabit the Murray-Darling river system (except at high elevations) and exist in the internal drainage systems of Lake Eyre and the Bulloo River. Recent evidence suggests that there may be a genetic difference between populations resulting in the existence of a separate species. They have been translocated into other rivers of NSW, Queensland and the Northern Territory.

They prefer warm, slow moving, turbid streams.

Windamere Dam, located in the  NSW Central Tablelands and situated along the Cudgegong River about 30km south-east of Mudgee is considered to be the premier Golden Perch fishery of this Country.

Our go to fly pattern is the Donny Brasco.
