With restrictions easing for country Victoria the local rivers and lake were a buzz with families getting out for day trips and overnight stays, and the fishing was unbelievable.

Trout are being caught in the big river arm, main arm and towards the Delatite arm trolling the old faithful Tassie devils in pink and white, while the yellas are starting to show up taking lures casting into the shallows of the bays, coves and inlets.

Bait fishing with yabbies and worms or the grubbing method is also working well. Small to 65cm Murry cod and the odd metre fish are out and about taking large hard bodies slowly trolled in 6 to 10mtrs of water.
Eildon pondage has had the school holiday stocking of small 300-400 gram rainbows which has seen some kids catching, but the larger rainbows and browns are still there, power bait, local dough, maggots and Mudeyes are the go for the bait fishos as the old trusty gold kroc is doing damage.

The rivers are fishing well for small to some larger browns taking scrub worms and Mudeyes , spinners and small shallow divers also while the rainbows are taking scrub worms, power bait ,Tassie devils, divers and fly’s, woolly buggers, weighted nymphs, duns and royal wolfe.

Until next week
Fish Hard
Cheers Craig
