The pondage has also been fishing well for anglers using dough-style baits around the ‘Footbal oval’ and Burke Street. Pink coloured powerbait and the ‘Garlic nymph’ dynamite bait have been the best performers. Just make sure to fish them on a fine gauge treble instead of a standard hook.
Customer Emir has been fishing the pondage at Eildon recently, where there have been some nice trout starting to show. Cooler weather has brought the trout into a more active feeding mood and this has resulted in better fishing. Emir caught a lovely 2kg brown trout in his last session, using Rapala F7 spotted dogs.
Lake Eildon Staff member Ian fished the lake late last week targeting some trout. With some fish showing up deep on the sounder, Ian dropped a few lures into the depths using his downrigger. With some Tassie devils set at around 70ft, he managed some nice trout on a tassie in colour 102.
