As we enter Autumn the trout fishing around the region will pick up, as many fish will start to feed up and condition themselves for the spawn season ahead in Winter. During this build up the fish can be more aggressive towards other fish, and larger lure offerings can provoke reaction strikes. This applies for all trout water, whether you fish the Latrobe around Noojee or way up the high country.

Customer Anel fished up in the NSW Snowy mountains last week with some of his mates in search of some clear water alpine trout before the crowds start making their way up. Anel and the boys fished a few different rivers after topping up some favourite lures at the shop. The boys didn't get to fish all the waterways that they wouldv'e liked but still got into some nice fish, with plenty of stocky rainbows eager to crunch the lures.


Rod from Compleat Angler Wagga reports that up in the Snowy mountains region the Tumut river is fishing well. The Tumut fishes similar to the Goulburn with higher water levels proving good fishing. The river is producing some lovely rainbow trout at present with the newly released 'trout spoon' from Yakamito proving to be dynamite.


The trout spoons are already proving to be a large river and lake trout killer with their erratic 'injured fish' wobble and flash. Plenty of colour options to keep all happy with natural 'trout' patterns along with bright attractor colours to fire up lethargic fish.
