It seems as though the yellowbelly have been coming up into the shallows with numerous reports of fish being caught land-based with scrub worms, which is a little unusual for February.
Hats off to good mate and all around champion of a bloke Trevor Holmes for putting in the time and effort for his clients and getting some great results. He has put his clients onto some cracker fish in recent months, and doesn’t look like slowing down!
Lots of reports are coming in from the top of the lake, with good sizes of cod and some great yellowbelly to boot, and it also seems that the redfin schools are up the top as well and looking good for the future.
On a recent trip, Jan Bast, a great angler who spends quite a bit of time on Eildon, unfortunately came across some set lines in the trees. I still can’t quite imagine what goes on in some peoples’ minds to think it’s acceptable in this day and age – it’s got to stop. So keep your eyes peeled and report any of this type of behaviour to fisheries.
It’s great to see plenty of water still up under the bridge in March, and this will more than likely fill over winter and provide plenty of water for the next 3 years or so, which is great for locals and local businesses moving forward.
There have been quite a few sightings of snakes in the water, so be aware and leave them be wherever possible. Stay safe.Reads: 250
