Yellow belly are going bananas in the lake, shore based fishos using worms and yabbies at the main wall, Jerusalem creek camp grounds, lake side and devils cove camp grounds, Goughs bay the list goes on. While boats working the trees, submerged timber and rocky edges using bibbless cranks, soft plastic grubs, spinner baits and divers, yabbies and worms are really having a great time catching these fish that are schooling up. Murry cod are taking surface lures at first and last light, divers ,bibles cranks, spinner baits and chatter baits and are being a by catch for those who are chasing the yellow belly. Redfin are about and should really start to fire up as the water warms up, try the heavy timbered areas of woolshed inlet ,Goughs bay, Taylor bay and big river.

The pondage is slowly clearing up and there are some monster brown trout taking Mudeyes, local dough and lures. Rainbow trout around the 2kg size are taking power bait, local dough and maggots, berleying up is the main key and stay in the one spot and the fish will eventually show up.
The Goulburn River is still producing some cracking fish taking power bait, bright coloured spinners, shallow divers, orange bead headed woolly buggers, duns, nymphs, white Cahill.

Rubicon, Snobs and the Acheron rivers are slowing down in flow and some nice size browns and rainbows can be had using scrub worms, spinners, soft plastics and dry flies.

Until next week
Fish Hard
Cheers Craig
