Yarra River Blackfish this afternoon

Postby ChrisD » Thu Feb 08, 2018 5:18 pm

quick session on the Yarra this afternoon, between Wesburn and Warburton, to my surprise it resulted in a couple of blackfish. Never caught them during the day.
First one was small, went across the plam of my hand and that was about it, didn't take a photo. The second was easily my PB on a blackfish, however as it was a hot afternoon, I got my photo and got it straight back into the water, didn't worry about measuring it.

Well done Chris.

You can catch them during the day 1. if the water is discoloured, 2. if fishing under cover such as logs of undercut banks, and 3. if the water is heavily shaded. I caught them about a week ago in a stream in the area you fished - I created a thread on it.

You should check out some of the small streams in the area you fish - its surprising what is in them ;-)

Best Wishes
