Lake Dartmouth:
83.98% up 0.48% this week.
Fishing: 8/10.
The Tatong anglers group had a trip up there the weekend just gone. Every angler I have talked to caught fish. The best thing is that the fisho's that casted lures were by far the most successful. These anglers were using rapala cd-5 and 7's, Bullet lures, predateks and plastics. Jess Hazell even had the fly rod out and landed himself a fair few! The trollers had pretty consistent fishing but a lot found that they had to chop and change to figure out what they were wanting. Smashing Pumkin, holographic and phosphorous pearl seemed to be the most successful with pink and silver also picking up an occasional fish. Most flatlined and leadcored. Also reports of a big black beetle hatch, that should get the trout up and about. Well worth having a flick when possible if you get the chance.

Lake Eildon:
72.62% down 0.12% this week
Fishing: 6.5/10.
Still just starting to show signs of what it's capable of this time of year. A lot of anglers ventured over there on the weekend with mixed results. Trout seemed to be the most consistent for anglers specially fishing over he goughs side of the lake. Pink, orange and white all preforming well in he winged lure department. Many anglers had soft taps and visually had the yellas following their lures to no hook up. It can't be far off before they are smashing them. Bait fishing is by far the best way to get onto the yellas at the moment. Small yabbies and worms dropped down the trees has been good. Yellas seem to be quiet small but that will increase. A few yellas and Redfin have been caught in the shallows off the bank using worms also.

Lake Nillahcootie:
91.18% up 0.17% this week.
Fishing: 6/10.
Reports are slowly coming in with a fair few anglers trying their luck out there the last few days. The yellas are slow but a couple have been caught on the trolling size 3 stumpys and codgers. Red/black and green/orange the best colours. Bank fishing has been a little better but the yellas have a bit smaller. Worms are the best bait and casting small hardbodies have been good too. Moving around is the key to finding the fish. Give a spot 15-20min then move to find the warmer water and the fish.

The broken is also going ok with a few small yellas and carp being caught on worms the last week. Haven't heard of anyone picking them up on lures though.

A few anglers have been working hard at Hume trying to catch a yella on the cast. Tanner had a few half hearted bumps for no hook bar one that smoked him in the trees. Fish are being sounded but aren't playing the game from reports. The trout are the most consistent but patience and persistence is required to hook up to a big one. Winged lures in pink and white are a great starting point.
