Lake Nillahcootie:
Fishing alright, everyone seems to be getting a few on the troll. Shrimp have been great off the points and in the timber for Yellas.

Broken river:
With the small flush we have had the fish have been active but not red hot. Bait fishers using bardis have been going the best. Casters have had to put in the hard yards to smack a few. Spinnerbaits are the go and surface fishing has been a bit quiet.

Still fishing superbly at the moment, most anglers smacking 10+ fish a day in the troll. There are no go to lures and it changes from day to day but some of the more successful ones have been smashing pumpkins, corroboree frog, pretty fish, bleeding frog, yellow wing clown, holographic and red nose bomber. As usual 4-7 colours of leadcore, downrigger down 30-50ft.

Surface fishing is really picking up at the moment, a few fish to 120cm have been caught late afternoon in 1-2m of water. Spinnerbaits and shallow diving lures have also been going well in the shallows. Bait fishos using grubs and yabbies have been going well in the flowing water but same thing 1-2m of water.

I haven't had many reports this week due to the weather or that not much has changed since last weeks report.
