A few warm days have been had, now we will see a change and back to 20-25 degree days.

Lake Eildon: 52.95%
Fishing: 8.5/10.
The Yellas are in full swing. They have been amongst the trees the last few weeks but now they seem to be schooling off the points ready to spawn. Trollers will find patches of these fish. Use 50mm, 30ft ac invaders in silver, rainbow, Redfin and red/black colours. Halco crazy deeps are also a good option in 8-12m of water. A well known rig of a plastic above your trolling lure has been working well for Redfin. The reddies are sometimes not keen to hit a diving lure so a plastic above the hardbody could be there downfall. There are still a few Yellas amongst the trees and small yabbies, saltwater nippers and shrimp are the best baits. Also don't be afraid to slow roll plastics up the trees(gulping).

Lake Nillahcootie: 52.72%
Fishing: 6.5/10.
Bank fishing is going off! Heaps of Yellas and Redfin are getting caught on worm and shrimp. Target 2-3 meters of water for best results. Some anglers are casting plastics and blades off the bank and also landing some better sized Redfin. Trollers are getting a few Yellas but a lot of by catch cod. Bait fishers amongst the trees have gone ok on shrimp but are finding they will go nuts for 20 min then nothing for a while. In that time cast some blades, plastics and lipless crankbaits.

Lake William hovell: 98.46%
Fishing: 7/10.
Hovell is producing some large Redfin of recent. In the boat, drift with worms or shrimp with one rod and run a blade or plastic and hold on. Trollers have been catching some nice trout trolling cowbells and worms. Bank fishers are catching a few smaller reddies on worms with the occasional trout in the early mornings or late arvo.

Broken river: steady
The shrimp are really becoming abundant and so are the Yellas. Micro spinnerbaits and size 3 stumpys are going well on the lure casting side of things. Bait fishers with a worm/shrimp cocktail is by far the best bait.

Lake Hume: 46.52%
Hume is still slowly rising and the Yellas and reddies are turning on again. Any hard body that gets down to 15ft and 40-60mm will get you a fish. Silver, red or green/orange are the preferred colours. Bait fishers using worms in 20-30ft are getting some better reddies.

Have a great weekend fishos
