With plenty of rain falling, there has been some top Trout fishing over the last two days. Despite the dismal conditions Brown Trout in the 2-3lb range, along with a few better fish coming from the lower Merri have kept anglers occupied. Lures such as Rapala X-rap 06’s, Daiwa Double clutch’s, and Norries Laydown Minnow’s have been receiving most of the attention. Remember that the Upper reaches of both the Hopkins and Merri are now open all year, so get out and make the most of our first class Brown Trout fishery!
