Lake Nillahcootie: 43.77%
Fishing: 7.5/10.
Nillah is holding up with the amount of pressure it's receiving. Most trollers are getting onto the fish. Most 40-70mm lures in red/ black or pink/purple are getting nailed. Bait fishers are pulling a few better yellowbelly off the trees on worms and shrimp. Bank fishos are continuing to catch Yellas, small cod and Redfin on the same bait.

Lake Eildon: 46.47%
Fishing:7/10.
Eildon is starting to produce some big cod. Casting spinnerbaits & chatter baits down rock walls and lay downs around goughs to big river. Trolling bushrangers, stumpys and ac's have all accounted for fish. Redfin action is on the verge I'd say. A few anglers are picking them up while trolling for Yellas. Bait fishos have also found a few small schools of better fish, live shrimp and worms doing the job.

Broken river: dropping
Fishing:7/10.
Lures casters are having some fun in the river at the moment. Surface or sinking the cod are having a crack. A few nicer fish have been caught on spinner baits. Colour doesn't overly matter by the reports. Mantis is still smashing cod on top. Bardis are by far the best bait at the moment, fishing top ends of pool and letting the smell of the bait drift through the water is a great way to keep your rod bells ringing.

Lake Dartmouth: 50.44%
Fishing: 6/10.
The trout fishing has been ok of recent. Some days you clean up some days you don't. Gold, orange and silver have all been great tassie colours. Lead coring and down rigging has been the best method. A few of the fish are in great condition but a lot are slabby at the moment. Cowbells and worms have also caught a few fish.

Everything is consistent at the moment so all you have to do is wet a line!
