During the harsh wind and rain of winter many fishing options can end up out the window. A trip up to Eildon can be a good option to catch some fish. If you're a boat fisherman the lake has been producing pelagic trout to around 500g throughout the main arm. Flatline trolling tassie devils and small spoons has been the most productive method to snare a fish or two, with brighter coloured tassies like number '55' or 'FLP' solid performers time and time again.
The pondage has also been seeing some nice fish come out, with the odd lure caught fish but predominately ruled by artificial baits. Customer Gordon has
been seeing some really solid fish caught from his last few visits so it is still a very worthwhile drive up through the ranges.
Customers Zoran and Jim are normally very successful in fishing the pondage. During recent trips the guys have been catching fish to around 1.5kg on dough
baits and powerbait. Fishing in conjunction with a crushed pellet berley has been the key to attracting the fish and keeping them nearby, while having
two different baits out maximizes your options. The steep bank area along Riverside Drive has been one of the more productive parts of the pondage
over the last week or, with many fish sitting in the old river channel waiting for a feed.
