The pondage at Eildon has been fishing well this week, with a bit of cooler weather keeping the trout active. The most productive methods have been coarse fishing with dough style baits, with specialist trout dough and 'rainbow' Powerbait the 2 standouts this week. Customer Zoran has been catching some nice rainbows around the football oval with a fine pellet trail a key to creating some activity. The fish may take half an hour or so respond to the berley but it is really half the battle.
Customer Jozef also fished the pondage with his wife Margaret earlier in the week where they landed 7 trout between them. most of the fish were smaller
rainbows averaging around 600g, with one larger brown trout in the mix also. Jozef tried bladed spinners and lures while baitfishing but the powerbait
was by far the most productive, with only one smaller fish caught on the lure. The weather for the rest of the week is staying a bit cooler for the
most part and should see the trout feeding activity quite high in the pondage and surrounding rivers.
