Fishing Report 21st November 2019

Warm water temperature and the yellas are on the chew. Cod from 45cm to the magic metre mark are very active in the main arm on the northern side of the lake, big river, Goulburn arm , goughs bay, Delatite, bolte bay.

The yellas are schooling up again and spread throughout the lake , bibbed lures like stump jumpers, rpm, miller, arashi and primal spinner baits are doing the job. Yabbies and scrub worms fished around the drop offs and trees along with soft plastic grubs in black work a treat. Best way to find them is to troll around with the sounder until you find the school, if you don’t have a sounder do the same until you hook up or spend 30 minutes moving from tree to tree until you find them, same for finding the redfin which are biting quiet well on soft plastic in the Delatite area down to taylors bay.

The Goulburn river is flowing at 2500meg so lures and plastics are working well for some nice rainbows around the 10lb mark on wonder krocs in black bar , pieca lures in blackfish and redbelly are also working. The Rubicon river has slowed down and brown trout to 2lb are taking subsurface lures and spinners, scrub worms, mudeyes and maggots under a float or piece of cork.

The Archeron river has some nice redfin being caught on celta spinners small browns around 1lb. The pondage has been slow at best , with some small rainbows and larger browns being caught on powerbait , scrubworms, maggots, mudeyes, rattle snacks and wonder krocs. The large rainbows have been belly waking the surface trying to get rid of their eggs, once they finish this the will start biting again.

Until next week Fish Hard
Cheers Craig
