  • Maguires Creek (Images)

    Hello all,
    This is part 2 of my series of creek expeditions I plan on doing over the next few months.
    This one is Maguires creek in Teven NSW and stretches a good 4km, most of it being on public land and parts on private land.
    The following pictures are of every accessible part I could locate without going for a snorkel.
    I had no nets or bags as it was purely adventure and 7am so I was very unprepared. Sorry its a bit rushed. I hope you enjoy the pictures

    The love of my life getting busy with the fishies

    This is the better side of me looking at some Splendida's.

    A large Vallis bed

    More Vallis beds

    Most of the bottom was covered in Vallisneria babies.

    Not the clearest picture but we found this plant.

    Same plant but the root system.

    For the most part, we spent 3 hours all up just looking for fish and plants including an hour in the last spot pictured.
    It was nice and cool and shallow enough to walk through. We found Rhads, Melanotaenia splendida splendida, Mullet, Bass, Eels,
    Catfish, Paratya shrimp and Gambusia.
    Good evening.

          Thanks for the post Pelvis_3.... I've been scrounging around our locals creeks the last couple of months, including some around the teven/bangalow area but not found a whole lot other than gambusia. Anyway I tried maguires creek and was pleasantly suprised. I got a heap of Melanotaenia duboulayi and a few gudgeon. Some really big rainbows in that creek. I didn't see any blue eyes but saw a turtle and catfish. Heres a pic of some Maguires Creek rainbows

            Peet, these Dubs look very similar to the Cooper Creek ones.
            Probably little surprise, given the close proximity

            That Aromatica seems to be going gangbusters in your tank !

              Hey Chris, some nice shots there. I was down that way a few weeks ago looking around the area for Rainbows. Find some Smelt in some creeks but nothing much else.

              I was looking around the water ways of Bullwinkle park, pearces creek and another creek which i think runs along Howard Rd.

              Below is a map of where i found some Melanotaenia duboulayi and smelt

                I hope your rainbows colour up OK for you.

                    It's nice countryside round there. I have looked in the creeks in the area myself (I spend half my time in the Northern Rivers). I have recently been looking at properties along Teven Road.
