Re: Tough going on the Yarra at present

I fished Millgrove for a couple of hours yesterday afternoon and managed to land 4 browns and a small redfin on soft plastics. Excellent session - well done.....but there is an old joke about the fishing being better yesterday :-D Mind you I am bait fishing - I have given up on lures and SP's - jus...

Re: Tough going on the Yarra at present

Thanks Truedogz - got some extra time off over ANZAC day, will have to have another look then.
It has been frustrating as for the last few months I have managed at least one fish landed per trip.....to suddenly go to nothing happening at all over three trips has had me scratching my head

Tough going on the Yarra at present

Had three trips along the Yarra over the last couple of weeks - Millgrove, Worri Yallock and Healseville......all for nought. Have not even managed a bite across the three trips. It may be that I am just a hack and have lost my touch :( or maybe other factors that I am just not seeing. Has anyone el...

Re: carp fishing help!

sorry no experience with caufield park - but give anywhere along the Yarra a crack and you will get on to them in general.

Re: Top 10 Carp spots within 10km of Richmond?

Is there less carp around at the moment?

Is it just me or are there less carp around at present? Thinking back on my fishing outings, on the Yarra, since late last year and I have only come across....maybe..half a dozen carp. I have had my first wild Rainbow and Brown trout, got on to quite a few Blackfish, a heap of reddies and plenty of ...

Re: Yarra River Blackfish this afternoon

Got amongst the Yarra Blackfish again tonight - had to battle through 8 small... between 15 and 20 cms....eels, but it was worth it. One Blackfish around the 35cm mark.
