Fishing locations Lake Jubilee is a great family friendly fishing destination in the beautiful country side of Daylesford. Only 2 klms from the main township this small lake offers anglers trout and redfin. It has plenty to offer families including picnic grounds, walking trials, BBQ’s camping, playgrounds, cabins and a range of water activities such as hire kayaks and paddleboats. Its also a pet friendly location. The lake is stocked regularly with trout and has several fishing jetties. So keep an eye out for stock times which is a great opportunity to take the kids.

FISH SPECIES TO TARGET

Rainbow Trout, Redfin

BEST BAITS AND LURES

When bait fishing whoch is the preferred choice at this spot try Scrub worms, Power bait, Yabbies and Mudeye. I have also had some success with shallow diving hard body lures and soft plastics. Click here to see our best lures and plastics when targeting Redfin.

ROD SETUP

When targeting Trout and Redfin fish as light as possible which will make the experience more fun and improve your chances. Redfin will actively take many baits or lures. To maximize your chances fish with a 2 – 4  or 1 – 3 kilo rod. The main line spooled with 4 pound braid finished with a good quality leader.

MOST PRODUCTIVE TIMES

Trout and Redfin are notorious for feeding more heavily at Dawn and Dusk. My personal favourite is fishing the sundown.

FAMILY FRIENDLY

A brilliant location for the family with picnic grounds, playgrounds, BBQ’s and a range of water activities. They will keep the kids occupied for hours even if the fishing is quiet.

KNOWN HAZARDS

Snakes are a major hazard in these areas. Tiger snakes, Brown snakes and Red Bellied Black. Best bet is to wear protective gumboots and strong fabric pants.
