Re: Headed to Mildura

Well after two afternoons's/evening fishing in Mildure - no yellow belly :( but plenty of carp.
Unfortunately I didn't crack the 70cm mark, that still eludes me.
However the carp that were caught were caught on 6lb line and made for alot of fun.

Re: Fishing when rivers are full

I keep well away from the Yarra when it is running as high as it is at present. Used to try fish it but found the result just weren't worth the effort or risk. I walked the dogs in Yering on the weekend and was amazed how high and fast it was it was. In some sections it was a solid two plus meters u...

Re: Headed to Mildura

Cool thanks for the tip - I know where lock 11 is - tried fishing there last trip, but easy access so worth another crack.

Re: Headed to Mildura

Thanks BM - might be worth a crack - I have never actually caught a Yellow Belly, it is on my to be done list.
Will have check out round Mildura township and see where the local tackle/bait shop is up there. You would assume there is one in town somewhere.

Headed to Mildura

Looking likely I will find myself in Mildura for a couple of days end of the week - and luckily I will get a few hours each day to wet a line. Not having had much luck the last two trips there, previous years - decide to just target carp and see if I can break the 70cm mark. Should present some fun....

Re: Landbased Options for Kids and Families

Give Don Lake in Healesville a try during the coming school holidays - good access and toilets. When the better weather comes and the Yarra flow rate drops - your a good chance of a carp or two in most spots - access can be tricky at times and not a lot of public toilets unfortunately. The Yarra thr...

Re: Redfin/Eels

Yarra still produces Eels in good numbers - garden worms or a scrubby late in the day into evening will quite often produce results.
Try around Wonga Park and through to Yarra Glen.
Yarra also has redfin but you have to hunt them up.

Re: Don Lake - Healesville today

Went up to Don Lake for a few hours today - figured I couldn't sit inside while the sun was shining. Had a few half hearted hits but no hook ups. There were about 12 cormorants working the lake, figured they were scaring all the fish off the bite. The buggers actually bought up a few good sized Redf...

Re: Don Lake - Healesville today

I've been there three times in the last couple of weeks - one session managed to drop two rainbows at my feet, about 12-13 inches both.
The other two sessions didn't even get a bite, but still a nice relaxing spot to sit and watch the world go by.
