Eildon pondage has seen heaps of small rainbows taking power bait, local dough and Mudeyes if you can get some, spinners and small divers are also working well, especially first and last light along with nymph’s ad woolly buggers for the fly fishos. The odd larger brown trout around the 3-4kg mark are taking gold krocs, Tassie devils in pink and local dough under a float with the help of berley.
The cold snap has seen some captures of trout in the lake slowly trolling the KG Tassie devil past the power lines in the main arm, big river is also starting to produce trout. Red fin are been taken in the Delatite arm on vibes and jigs, with scrub worms being bobbed around the trees also working. You need to sound around to find the schools and be prepared to keep moving once the bight time stops.
The odd yella and Murry cod are being taken around woolshed inlet to Maintongoon inlet from the bank on yabbies and scrub worms. The main wall and Jerusalem creek area seem to be the better places to target cod with lures.

The Goulburn River is producing some larger rainbow trout on power bait with cat food in the berley feeder for attractant; the deeper water is the go with 2500 Megs flowing. Casting divers into the water at the end of the rapids have seen some 40cm browns with the odd rainbow amongst them.
Until next week
Fish Hard
Cheers Craig
