Moving On Up

The recent fishing has proved to be consistent in this part of Victoria, especially in Morwell and Tyers rivers.

The Morwell River has been a bit of a go-to stream over the past month as it has had a consistent water flow, which has made it accessible to all kinds of fishing.

The flyfishers are still doing very well with dry flies such as Dads Favourites and red spinners, however I imagine, a wet fly will come in to its own soon once the water flow increases into winter and the trout start to head upstream.

There has already been the odd trout spawning, which is a good sign for the rest of the season.

The trout have been a little bigger this month, as I’ve seen some nice brown trout measuring 35cm.

One angler I spoke to had a great day, landing more than 12 trout, the smallest being 32cm.

Traralgon Creek has been a little slow due to the lower water levels, however, if we get a decent rain, I think it will fish really well.

The Tyers River has been another stream that has been fished pretty hard as it has held a good water level.

Soft plastics seem to be the thing to use in this river these days and something like a 3” Gulp minnow works extremely well.

Most anglers are getting plenty of trout averaging 24cm, however most anglers seem to get at least one bigger fish over 35cm.
