Eildon pondage has just had a release of 210 exbrood stock just in time for the long weekend, 120 rainbows and 90 browns. Gold krocs and rattle snacks along with fluro coloured powerbait are the choice for these newly released fish, Mudeyes are working well under a float or on the bottom with burke st and the nursery corner the main areas, powerbait in rainbow and sherbet around the footy oval and bridge area.

The Goulbourn has slowed down with only 2500 meg a day so floating baits like gents (maggots), mudeyes and worms along with bibbed lures around the snags are the way to go.

Snobs creek has small but fun brown and rainbow taking Para Dunns, Royal wolf and Nymphs for the fly fishos. Small spinners are also worth using.

Rubicon and the Archeron will be swollen due to the recent rain so worms drifting down through the deeper holes would be my choice, if it clears up go to the lure box and grab your small divers or spinners.

Tree 13 is back in action again with redfin around 1 ½ pound or 1.5kg taking yabbies and scrub worms , Goughs bay has seen yellow belly and redfin taking lures and bait around the trees and along the steep banks.Taylor bay through to Bonnie doon has yellow belly and redfin again taking bait, spinner baits, bibbed lures , bibless cranks and soft plastics, Cod are still taking surface lures first light and into dark around big river and jerusalem creek , trolling bibbed lure in the same area and around the main arm are also producing cod.

Until next week fish hard
Cheers Craig
