Lake Belmore has provided Croydon with a resource more precious than the gold once mined throughout the area – water.
Lake Belmore is the aquatic jewel of the Gulf Savannah. It is the largest body of fresh water in the region providing locals and tourists with a cool, clean, quiet place to swim, fish, ski, canoe and socialise.
The lake is stocked with Red Claw, Barramundi and Sooty Grunter with Black Bream occurring naturally. Barramundi and Sooty Grunter fingerlings are purchased and released into the lake every year to ensure that the seasonally unrestricted fishing is always fantastic. Note: To fish in Lake Belmore you must have a current Stocked Impoundment Permit (SIP). For information and to purchase a SIP please use the following link:http://www.qld.gov.au/recreation/activities/boating-fishing/rec-fishing/dams/
