Fishing | Cray season off to a good start

Where are the fish biting further afield?

TOP CATCH: John Moncrief with the good-sized brown trout he caught below the Hume Weir wall. It was landed on a spawning brown, five-centiemtre bullet lure.

Cray season seems to have kicked off pretty well.

Just about everyone I’ve spoken to has had a good feed and a great time, and that’s what it’s all about isn’t it?

Blowering: still has some decent reddies with most coming in on worms and yabbies, but don’t be afraid to also have a crack at the trout up there at the minute.

The top end of the lake seems to be going best with mainly rainbows around the one kilogram mark and an occasional 2.5 to three kilogram model caught flat-lining King Cobras.

Cod are still slow at the moment

Eucumbene: has picked up a bit with some reasonable reports coming in.

These mainly revolve around trolling, and while quite a few of the fish are of decent length they are in pretty poor nick which I suppose you’d expect with a lot of them in spawning mode.

Wherever you’re heading this weekend, have a great one.

BEAUTY: Ethan Rahaley shows off a nice trout he caught just below the weir wall and judging by the photo, this one ended up on the dinner table.
