When we hooked a baby platypus whilst fishing one night at the river, we decided to stop fishing at our riverfront. We had also caught a lungfish just a few days earlier. Fortunately, these protected river creatures were fine, and lived to tell another day. If you are a keen fisherman, there are a few spots along the river with deep holes. We have caught bream from this part of the river (freshwater) but mostly you will pull up a catfish - native or introduced. (eel-tail & fork-tail).
