Have a 'Google' for access along the river. You should be able to pick up some catties in the river given enough time soaking bait. Be careful of their spines (one at the start of the dorsal fin and one either side in the pectoral fins) as they are pretty painful of you get stuck.

I've spotted a couple of areas, marked in blue below, that I'd try if I was in the area.

Good luck. Hope you get a few. Let us know how you get on.

Mate if you have a car a short drive to Colleges Crossing (20mins) is a good place to start soak servo prawns, garden worms or some soft plastics in worm or crawfish shape. Mt Crosby Weir is about 5 min drive from here also the Junction and Kookaburra park are all good spots catties everywhere!

@natang @ellicat g'day  guys i ended up taking my nephew out to the boat ramp at first but it was a bit too chockers with some rougher people so we moved to colleges crossing where the nephew caught a 24cm bream that for its size was a chonker, we let him go and moved to kookaburra park as the young one was desperate to catch a real live catfish. we caught three catties (biggest was maybe 30cm max) which he went bonkers over and an eel which he was terrified of. The heat of the day and all the adventure caught up to him at this point and he was nodding off holding his rod so i took him home, this was my first time really spending time with him by myself and i'm beyond grateful you guys put me onto some good spots for him to have fun at. so thanks guys i really appreciate the help.

ps. he is already bugging his father ( a very indoors type of man) to take him fishing next weekend

Well done, glad to hear you got on to some! The catties in the river up there cat huge and a load of fun on light gear... Used to catch them at the second weir at Mt Crosby on Gar strips. Gets hot up there though with no breeze and little shade.
