Fishing Report

Eildon pondage will have been restocked with 550 ex brood stock rainbow and brown trout between 4 and 5kilo, as well as 420 ready to catch rainbows averaging 220gm over the last 3 weeks and ready for the Easter break.

Anglers have been dealing with high water levels of a morning and targeting the shallows of the lower pondage in areas such as nursery corner, Bourke st and the floating jetty have been picking up a few of these guys of a morning. Power bait, local dough, spider mudeye under float, krocs, pink Tassie, small jointed hard bodies and the woolly worm fly have all worked recently.

Up on the lake a couple of nice Murray cod have been caught one of which went over the meter mark, several smaller fellas are being caught as well, the main arm, Coller bay, Jerusalem creek and woolshed inlet are the areas to target at the moment. Deep diving hard bodies in the purple, bib less crank baits and a mixture of colours in spinner baits are the way to go lure wise.

You have work a little harder for the reddies and yellas but they are about. Brown trout up to the 2lb mark have started to fire up again near Taylor bay and you guessed it Pink Tassie are the go to lure.

Down the Goulburn near the Breakaway caravan park, pink power bait has been working, while scrubbies, soft plastics and various flies have been working between Eildon and Alexandra. Small bladed lures and jointed hard bodies are working in the Rubicon, Acheron and big rivers as well as Snobs creek.

Catch you next week
