This site was updated in November, so I don't know whether things have changed, but it looks like there are not many family fishing lakes being stock over the April school holidays and Lilydale lake is not one of them. https://vfa.vic.gov.au/recreational-fishing/fish-stocking/school-holiday-trout-st...
I think the saddest thing (and thankfully I didn't see any the other day) is when people leave great bundles of tangled fishing line on the shore. I was watching a pair of Kangaroos coming down to the water to drink the other day and mess of fishing line would led to a nasty situation.

I use size 10 or even smaller and I've rarely had a problem; and when I have it has been because I've put too much bait on the hook and the barb has not got enough purchase.
At least initially, the bait determines the size of the hook I use. If I'm using corn or maggots, I use size 10 or 12 (even 14); Mudeyes or small worms, I use 8 or 10; Scrub worms, I use 6 or 4 (2 for the really big ones); for a big old yabby I'll use a 2 or a 1.

Nice report. I'm going to hit the Upper Coliban tomorrow. It's good to see that some of those Rainbow Trout that were stocked a while back are now at catchable size.
There use to be a guy that use to fly fish for bream in the Maribyrnong river in the Ascot Vale area, he use to use a fly with a shrimp pattern. I never saw him catch anything though.
