The local rivers are pumping after all the rain we have received over the last two days. The Merri has well and truly burst its banks into the flood plains and the fish have followed. Dane Skinner and his old man dropped into the shop yesterday before hitting up the local Trout. The guys ended up catching this quality Brown in tight to the flooded edges. Other anglers have also caught some really good fish up to 6lb slowly rolling bigger soft plastics such as Zman Trick Swimz and Fish Arrow Flash J shads. As always, Hardbodies such as the Daiwa Double Clutch 95’s are also getting their fair share of fish. If you have any recent captures you would like featured in our report, please email them to
