Lake Eildon is on fire with brown trout, flat lining Tassie devils is the preferred method with most fish around the 40cm mark. Mansfield guru Dieter however managed to catch this 70cm beast at Big River on Sunday along with a bag of redfin all taken trolling. Hot spots for trout are Big River, Howqua inlet, Goulburn inlet and the Main arm of the lake. Murry Cod have been quiet with only a few small fish being taken on bait. Yellow belly were on the chew before lock down taking scrub worms, yabbies and lures in amongst the timber along the edges of the entrance to big river and of the bank at the Jerusalem creek, with water temperatures holding firm at the moment these fish should still be active in these areas.
Eildon pondage has rainbow trout taking powerbait, local dough and worms with the odd brown taking gold kroc lures. Some of the rainbow trout are small but there are some nice 500 gram fish amongst these.
Goulburn River is at the perfect flow and there is plenty of fish moving up the rivers and creeks doing their spawning run. Lures are your best bet as the females are hungry and the males are striking out of aggression. Rubicon has some huge Brooke trout taking shallow divers along with some medium size browns.
Murry Cray season has started and they are on the move, popular spots are along the main arm and along the wall in the lake with the pondage also having a good supply.
Until next week
Fish Hard
