Burrendong Fishing Classic on this Easter weekend!

THE Inland Waterways Rejuvenation Association (IWRA) is staging the 2012 Lake Burrendong Fishing Classic over the Easter long weekend.

The comp is one of the biggest freshwater C&R events around. Given Lake Burrendong’s reputation for big yellowbelly, these natives are the No.1 target species, along with cod, redfin, silver perch and catfish.

The Central Western community of NSW has gotten right behind the comp, with close to $40,000 in cash and prizes for the 2012 comp to be handed out. Feature prizes include a 4X4 Skamper Camper off road trailer, a Quintrex boat and motor and a holiday accommodation package.

The not-for-profit event attracts competitors from around NSW. Organisers expected about 1000 entrants for the 2012 event, which will run from April 6-8. Proceeds from the Classic assist the IWRA in providing ongoing fingerling stocking and native fish release programs; rejuvenation of riverbank habitats and waterways; educational programs to promote sustainable best fishing practices with community groups and local schools; works in conjunction with government authorities and fishing club organisations to provide constructive results; promoting the region; and providing improvements to local waterways and resources. Sounds like a bloody great comp!
