LAKE Hume: It has been wet and cold but that didn’t stop some of the fishermen who brought home fish. Some caught trout — what size? 900 grams to 3.6 kilograms — all sizes were caught, and nice fish at that. Trout were not the only fish caught, with cod, redfin and yellowbelly all reported. A nice one was caught by a Wodonga fireman who went out in the cold.

So if you like fishing, put on some warm clothes, get out and get a feed. Fish are being caught all over the lake.

Lake Eildon and Pondage: In the lake the fishos are getting nice trout, redfin and cod — one went 101 centimetres. The yellowbelly are biting on worms and lures. As for the trout in the pondage, up to two-kilogram rainbows are liking the powerbaits and three-kilogram browns are being caught on tassies.

Lake Dartmouth: It’s cold and wet up there too, but the trout don’t care. A lot of them — browns and rainbows — will be looking for a feed, so if you put in your baits and lures and get around the lake, most of the trout are liking anything in pink (tassies) baits, worms and mudeyes.

If you get a good photo (larger than 1MB) of your fish, you know what to do — send it in.
