The season for fishing Victoria's Murray Cod has now closed as of Sunday 1 September. This means that all waters except for Lake Eildon are closed to cod fishing.
But, the state’s huge trout opening is on again in September, with the Goulburn River set to be a major drawcard with 2,000 ‘stonker’ trout to be stocke.
The Victorian Fisheries Authority (VFA) will release the giant rainbow trout, boasting a combined weight of 7 tonnes, at 11 family-friendly sites near Eildon.
The stocking is funded in part by recreational fishing licence fees.
The bumper stocking was a massive success last year and attracted thousands of keen freshwater fishers providing a boost to the local economy.
This year, the Goulburn River between Molesworth and the Eildon Pondage will receive 1500 big trout, with 500 to be released into the Eildon Pondage itself.
