The recent run off in the rivers has kicked the local Brown Trout into gear. Plenty of fish have been coming from the upper Hopkins and Merri, which are now open all year round for anglers to make the most of these put and take fisheries. Lures such as Rapala F7’s, Daiwa Double Clutch’s and Berkley T-tail soft plastics have been stand outs on these fish in the dirty water. Dylan from the Tackle Shack put in a few session during the week and found plenty of fish ranging from 2-4.5lb keen on belting larger profile hardbodies. Get out on the rivers and catch a few Trout while the flows are still ideal!
