For inland anglers, springtime heralds great fishing for stocked golden perch in our northern lakes, including Eildon.

Our Fisheries Officers have been out and about, and report that the vast majority of people are doing the right thing and abiding by the daily bag limit of 5 golden perch per person.

A recent weekend of patrols, which included inspections of boats on the lake, anglers on the shore and roadside interceptions, revealed those people who'd harvested goldens had 2 or 3 on average, ranging between 2 and 3 kg each. 

Only minor offending was detected for licensing related matters, excess gear and maritime safety issues.

Anglers fishing Eildon and other golden hotspots this month and next are encouraged to be respectful of other anglers and different cultural attitudes towards keeping a few fish to take home.

We will continue to stock large numbers of golden perch fingerlings into our northern lakes to ensure a healthy population is available to everyone, whether they be sportfishers casting lures and releasing fish or baitfishers using yabbies to take home a feed for the table.
