Monduran Dam

Lake Monduran, the body of water behind the Fred Haigh Dam on the Kolan River is no doubt the most reliable southern barramundi impoundment in Queensland. It also boasts the most northerly dam stocked with Australian Bass. Over the past few years it has grown to be a popular spot, both with locals and vistitors alike. It has all amenities, good boat ramps and even kayaks to housebout hire available from the kiosk.

Monduran was stocked for a few years in the mid 1980s with yellowbelly, silver perch and a few thousand barra fingerlings before falling quiet until the mid 1990s when a small dedicated group of locals set out to change the dam into a major fishery. That little group formed MASA (Monduran Anglers and Stocking Association), and thanks to their efforts, many anglers from all over Australia and the world have caught their dream fish right here.
