Lake Eildon is producing Redfin around 30cm to some bigger specimens on worms, yabbies and vibes in 6 to 11 metres of water in the trees that are starting to appear with the slow falling water levels. Spend 15 minutes per tree slowly bobbing your baits up and down or just let the water traffic do the work for you. Yellow belly are still about and bank fishos fishing off the banks near the Jerusalem creek camp grounds, the pines and Fraser camp ground at first and last light using scrub worms and small yabbies, if you want to fish all day make sure you have plenty of Bushman’s spray, the flies are intense.

Murry cod are being caught on stump jumpers, spinner baits slowly trolled or cast along the banks. Prime spots have been Big river arm, Goulburn inlet, Howqua inlet and Taylor bay. Bank fishing into the night with scrub worms and yabbies are also working well.

The Goulburn river is running at 2800meg per day and the fishing has been very good around Alexandra bridge, Molesworth, and Thornton to Point hill with fishos slowly trolling bibbed divers in and around the trees and weed beds catching some 60cm plus rainbows and 40cm browns, if you don’t have a boat then you will need to do some walking to fish the slower water.

Eildon pondage has plenty of family fish around 30cm taking powerbait, local dough, maggots and mudeye, with the occasional worm doing the job, there are still some big browns in there along with the stonker rainbows as I’ve had a rainbow brought into the shop that weighed 5.740kg.
Until next week
Fish Hard
