Trout still going great

If you’re a trout fisho – the Goulburn river has been very hard to go past as a red hot location! Surplus numbers of trout are being caught by anglers fishing the banks of the river, with both bait and lure options getting results.

Customer Alen has been fishing the river a bit recently and has been catching plenty of nice trout. Alen has been fishing below Thornton most of the time and he has been having fun with hardbodied lures around the edge of most of the runs. The best performing lures have been double clutch 75 and 60, along with SFT jerkbaits. Alen has also tried his hand at flyfishing for the trout around the slow edges with good results too.

Customer Chris has just started fishing the Goulburn river over the past few weeks, and he has been having heaps of fun testing some of his new gear out. Chris has been wading the edges while spinning lures to catch his trout. Chris has found lures like double clutch 60 and Rapala countdown elite have been the most effective for him.

Customer Waz and mates all fished the river last weekend. The boys fished the river around Gilmore’s Bridge where they walked both up and downstream. The boys caught 7 rainbow trout and 1 redfin, with the most effective lures being small bladed spinners like the Mapso number 1, especially in brown trout and black colour schemes.

Back closer to home customer Nick took his family up to Macclesfield trout farm for something different. His young daughter Lucy loved seeing the big rainbow trout being caught, and Nick now has a potential budding trout angler in the ranks. Fishing powerbait in the farm is very effective, as it is when fishing the Goulburn.
