The pondage is still producing large brown trout on gold krocs, pink Tassie devils and Peica lures with the bridge between the upper and low pondage the main area to target. But as of now the pondage is at 82% well above the 38% we have seen all week so these fish will be wide spread.

My suggestion would be to target the tail race areas, burke st and riverside drive towards the gates to the Goulburn. Rainbow trout are taking powerbait and local dough and are wide spread throughout the pondage with bag limit catches reported at burke st, river side drive, the footy oval and johns hole.

Brown trout are back on the chew in the lake taking slowly trolled lures with and without ford fenders/cow bells, f11 and f9 Rapalas, clown pattern Tassie devils and stump jumpers size1 yes size 1(they are hungry) and big trout in really great condition. Cod are still about with more reports of them taking hard bodied lures trolled and cast along the banks in the shallows; Jamison and Howqua inlet are the main areas. Yellow belly and redfin are still taking worms and yabbies in Goughs bay, Delatite arm, Woolshed inlet, 8-13 metres is the depth to target around the timber.

Until next week
Fish Hard and Stay Safe
