Most of Victoria's Western lakes fish exceptionally well for trout during the colder months of the years. Some of these lakes are relatively shallow which means that during the summer months they warm up easily, and trout don't like this too much. Wet, windy days are often the best times to fish these lakes, as the cold conditions keep the trout happily feeding along the edges where they can be fished for.
Jeremy Gadea had a fish recently over at Upper Coliban Reservoir, which is north-west of Melbourne. Jermey walked the edges fishing lures and managed some nice brown trout to around 2lb using a variety of lures. His most effective lure was the smallest size Waxwing jig from Shimano.
Frank Gadea also fished the 'Colli' as well as Lauriston Reservoir with the fly gear where he caught some nice browns along the edges. Frank noticed that the fish were chasing baitfish around the shallows and his smelt patterns worked a treat.
