Eildon pondage is doing quite well this week, especially after fisheries released 150 ex brood rainbow trout between 1 and 2.5 kg, and as you would expect the old favorites have come out and are doing well. That’s the local dough, rainbow, pink and chartreuse power bait, pink Tassie devils and gold Kroc and pegron lures.

The water level is up and down regularly at the moment with 5000 Meg being released into the Goulburn River, part of which is environmental allocations.

Lake Eildon is still producing good numbers of Murray cod on the stump jumper and spinner bait type lures, however scrub worms and yabbies are working well also. With one being reported 105cm but most have been between 40 and 60 cm.

Delatite arm and bonnie doon are still the hot spots for red fin and yellow belly using scrubbies and yabbies amongst the trees, Taylor bay has had a couple of Yellow belly around the 36cm mark taken as well.

The Goulburn and Big River are still producing good size rainbow and brown trout on spotted dog Rapalas, soft plastics, and celtas and scrub worms.

Catch you next week
