Fishing Report 28th November 2019

Spring is nearly over and bring on summer and hopefully some more regular weather. The yellowbelly are really starting to fire with more regular catches reported throughout the lake.

Bank fishing with worms and yabbies and casting vibes, spinnerbaits and hard bodied lures are doing the job. The wall is working well for this method as is Jerusalem inlet and Coller bay. In the lake working the timber and rock walls either trolling or casting, soft plastics, spinnerbaits, vibes, swimbaits and hard bodied lures are taking Cod from as small as 100mm to the magical metre. The main arm, big river, Jerusalem creek around to the Delatite are good areas to target and there are plenty of yellowbelly as a by catch (not a bad thing).

Redfin are starting to move and some really good reports from Goughs bay and again the Delatite working soft plastics around the trees, sound around for the schools and some lovely fillets should be on offer.

The Goulburn river is at 2500 meg a day but there is still plenty of trout to be caught, unweighted scrub worms floated down stream, dry fly’s and small subsurface divers are still seeing some big rainbows and browns being caught. The pondage has been a little up and down but those who persist reap the rewards as some nice 2kg browns and 4kg rainbows are still on offer, powerbait and local dough with the help of a berley feeder or pellets thrown out over your bait will help attract mainly rainbows.

Scrub worms, maggots, mudeyes and wonder krocs are doing the damage on the browns. The Rubicon has a very healthy population of small to medium browns with the odd larger one on offer taking small spinners like celta and vibrax lures.
Until next week Fish Hard
Cheers Craig
