Redfin and trout continue to delight local anglers

- With Rob Alexander WANGARATTA

THIS week’s fishing report is coming to you live from the shores of the Waranga Basin.

It’s currently 10am, I have been fishing since 6am and have caught the whole sum of two small redfin.

One was caught on a soft plastic and the other a small minnow, just casting from the bank.

I did bring my kayak over, but it’s a bit windier than I would like so have decided to play it safe.

I have heard a few reports of redfin being caught here recently, but nothing as serious as Lake Hume where the redfin and trout continue to bite very well.

Lake Nillahcoot­ie has been ticking over nicely, with those anglers lucky enough to get there in between windy days managing to catch a few yellowbell­y on worms, yabbies and trolled lures.

If you’re looking to take the kids fishing somewhere, head to Stanley Dam.

I was up there a few days ago. There were fish rising all over the dam, but I struggled to catch any.

I hooked one and lost it, and that was it.

The trout are there, and they’re feeding.

They’re there for the taking and they’re there for the kids.

With easy access and heaps of fish there’s no better option to take the kids fishing at the moment.

 ?? ?? SMALL REDDIE: This tiny Waranga Basin redfin was caught five minutes before this report was written. I am pleased to say that it is the smallest of two fish caught, but only just.
