The Trout fishing on the Local Rivers has been exceptional this week. Flows in the Merri and Hopkins are prime for targeting those large run off fish. Plenty of well conditioned Browns have been landed by Anglers casting larger hardbodies. Lures such as the Rapala F9’s and Double Clutch 95’s have been a top pick amongst anglers. This weekend also marks the opening of the 2018/2019 trout season and we have received some great reports of fish from Mt Emu Creek as well. If you have any photos from trout opening you would like featured in our report, please send them through via our Facebook page or email.
