Lake Hume: 49.80%
Fishing: 7.5/10
Hume is still producing some good Yellas, trout and Redfin. It's slightly dropped in volume but the water is warm. Trolling 50mm ac invaders and halco's are catching everything. The trout have been smacking more Yella and Redfin designed lures. Casting the points has been good with a few nice Redfin and Yellas being caught. Using strike pro blades, lipless crankbaits and plastics is getting the job done. Tassies early in the morning on the flatline and 2-4 colours of lead core. Silver and pink tassies he go.

Lake Nillahcootie: 56.10%
Fishing: 6/10.
Nillah is starting to produce more and more fish. Most bait fishos are landing a few in a session. It's been better around the top end of the lake bobbing worms amongst the trees. Land based has been good in the 2-3 meters of water. Wind your rod in a meter every 5 min as some fish just sit there and watch your bait. You do get snagged a bit more but you do entice the fish to bite. Trollers are surprisingly catching Yellas a bit deeper(7-9m of water) they haven't moved up into the shallows yet. Troll halco's crazy deeps, 30ft 50mm invaders and codgers.

Broken river: dropping
Fishing: 6/10.
The water has dropped a bit this week but the Yellas are still smacking worms and shrimp(if you can catch them). Small stumpys in gold have been landing a few.

Lake Eildon: 60.68%
Fishing: 7/10.
The trout action has been good as further big hatches have happened. You can now start to troll closer to the bank and target the wind blown side. Make sure you let out a bit more line when your trolling. White, pink and orange tassies and white/silver rapalas catching the fish. Yellow belly action is on the verge, most anglers getting one or two at this stage(trolling). Bait anglers have caught Yellas off the bank and amongst the trees using either small yabbies or worms. A few by catch cod have been caught while targeting Redfin and Yellas. Make sure you quickly release these fish.

Lake Dartmouth: 66.24%
Fishing: 8/10.
Darts still pumping out fish! Leadcoring and paravaning have produces a lot of fish with silver or natural coloured tassies in tow. Cowbells and worms have been good as the morning goes on. The gudgeon fishing amongst the trees is getting better and better with some large browns being caught. Also if you can get onto some mud eyes they are working well too.
