I ventured up to Ferntree Gully quarry and managed to catch 10 stocked rainbow trout in 90 minutes fishing from the very scenic reserve. It’s a beautiful location with breathtaking views, active bird life, crystal clear waters and freshwater fishing. Victorian fisheries have stocked this system heavily with rainbow trout and recently have also added Murray cod and golden perch. To the already health redfin, estuary perch and trout population found. This is all part of the state governments T1M Target 1 Million by 2020 and Target 10 million by 2022. There has also been a new fishing platform installed which offers amazing land base fishing.

You can view the video of this fishing session which also provides some tips and techniques on how to catch trout, how to improve an amazing ecosystem by practising catch and release, how to rig up and how to choose appropriate gear selection
