While the warm weather isn't normally the best for trout fishing the fish have still been quite active around the Eildon and Yarra valley regions. Many of the streams around Eildon are still quite cold, which keep the trout happy. At Eildon itself, the pondage has been fishing well.
Customer Greg fished the pondage at Eildon during the week were he had a very successful session. Greg fished the lower pondage around Bourke street where
the trout just kept coming! Water conditions were quite low with more water expected to be let through during the week, so conditions should improve
yet again. Greg caught and released over 30 school sized fish, along with this nice brown on a mixture of baits. Gulp 'salmon eggs' were the most successful,
in both chartreuse and pink and small worms even got a few fish. On multiple occasions both rods would go off at the same time, so the trout are hungry
at the moment! Fishing around dusk produced the better quality fish.
Customer Mohd has been doing well with his fly fishing recently. Mohd has found the small streams around Eildon and south towards the Yarra valley very
productive on fly lately, with stacks of pocket water browns and rainbows to be caught. Mohd has been catching on both dry and nymph patterns recently.
Plenty of lures have been working for other anglers fishing these small streams, with new colours in the Strike Tiger nymphs going really well.
