Our freshwater native fish have been active lately with water temperatures rising. Fish like yellowbelly, Murray cod, silver perch and Australian bass are all more active in warmer water. Areas like Lake Eildon are worth a red hot go for yellas and cod at the moment, as are some of the other dams and rivers north of Melbourne. Customer Jordan caught a few native species over the weekend fishing some stocked lakes in the states' north. Amongst a few redfin, Jordan also caught silver perch and yellowbelly on small hardbodied lures. Jordan has found small Atomic hardbodies effective in natural colours.
