Does anyone know if there are any carp in that creek?  Its quite lovely surrounded by parkland.  I checked it out today but didn't see any.  That doesn't mean they're not there.  Thanks!

A quick google search produced this

 

Six native fish species live in the freshwater section of Wolli Creek and can sometimes be seen above the Henderson Street weir. These are: Empire Gudgeon (Hypseleotris compressa), Flathead Gudgeon (Philypnodon grandiceps), Striped Gudgeon (Gobiomorphus australis), Firetail Gudgeon (Hypseleotris galii), Common Galaxia (Galaxis maculatus) and Long-Finned Eel (Anguilla reinhardtii).

Not really relevant but there is a decent carp spot in Milperra in Newland Reserve. It has carp, eels and the like good luck!

Thank you Rah.  Of course carp is not a native species so it was not mentioned in the species list you put up.  There's also another Australian native fish that has not been mentioned to be in Wolli Ck. 😘

So I haven't tried it there yet.  I managed to find a cupla carp elsewhere in the Southern/Eastern suburbs but I will try Bardwell at some stage.

That's true mate. I didn't see any reference to carp when I had a look. 

When you give it a crack let me know what you come across. 😁
