Toolondo continues to fish well for both brown and rainbow trout with the odd Redfin being taken as well.Most lures are working well with pink,white and lumo blue being my preferred colors.I have also had success on the stumpjumper finesse in pink or the orange/brown color. The holographic tassie is also a standout. Water level is starting to drop but with a little luck there will be water run into it from Rocklands in the near future. Browns are up to 2.3 kg and rainbows have been up to 3kg.

Tooliorook at Lismore is still producing beaut rainbows and some nice browns too. Trolling tassie devils in pink or white are getting results. Bait fishing live minnows or gudgeon either under a float or on the bottom works well here too. Power bait also accounts for many fish here, pink or orange the preferred colors.

A lot of other lakes are also fishing well including Bullen Merri and Purrembete for browns, rainbows. Many of the new release chinook salmon are being caught and released too. What an exciting time we have ahead in these 2 lakes when they mature. Purrembete is always a good all rounder with many Redfin available by drop shotting minnow imitations or using live bait.

Lake Bolac is producing rainbows of basically 2 sizes...1kg and 2 kg and above.

Lakes Fyans and Wartook near Halls Gap are starting to fire again after getting a lot of fishing pressure due to the past drought. Wartook being the pick of these lakes with lures and bait getting the results.

Rocklands is a bit of a hit or miss lake at the moment but will improve in the near future. Carp are a major problem here and will take any bait presented with fish of 9 or 10 kg not un-common.
