Fishing Report 20th February 2020

Maggots, mudeyes are the go to bait for trout in the rivers and pondage with some really good reports from Twin rivers caravan park where fishos are getting their bag limit of rainbows and browns. The Goulbourn river has slowed down and some really nice fish are actively feeding on mudeye which seem to be hatching at this present stage. Burley up with some maggots and float a mudeye or maggots through your berley trail for the best results. Lures are still working in all the rivers and streams as well as dry flies and wet flies in a mudeye pattern or similar.
The Pondage has some nice full tailed and finned rainbows and browns feeding up in the high water that has been consistent of late, power bait, mudeyes, maggots and even power bait worm cocktail have produced fish. Areas to target are burke st the floating pontoon and riverside drv.
The lake has been quiet of late with the low barometer, but as of late yesterday it has started to rise which should (fingers crossed) bring the fish on. Redfin should be starting to school up, so the standing timber all over the lake are great places to start, worms, yabbies and bobbers should produce the goods.Yellowbelly and cod have been quiet with one good report of a 93cm caught in wilsons inlet and the odd yella around taylors and goughs bay.

Until next week
Fish Hard
Cheers Craig
