Terrific trout

Trout season for the local rivers is getting towards the pointy end – and the fishing has been excellent. With plenty of rain this Autumn the rivers are running at great levels and the fish have been active. The Eildon region has been hard to beat, with the Goulburn and joining rivers fishing productively.

Customer Angelo fished the Goulburn with mate Tony just recently. The boys fished the river below Thornton where they landed a couple of fish. Fishing powerbait on small spring hooks in conjunction with a pellet mix berley was the key to catching.

Customer David went for a fish up around the Eildon region last week and jumped in one of the rivers to spin for trout. David waded the section of the Acheron river around Buxton where he caught a few trout. David caught both brown and rainbow trout on small sinking hardbodies, with a surprize capture of a tiger trout included in the mix also.
