Trout fishing in winter can be challenging. The biggest, and most obvious challenge is that the streams are all closed to trout fishing, meaning that the only places we can go trout fishing are the lakes.
In this video I am fishing at Lake WIlliam Hovell, near Whitfield and Cheshunt in North East Victoria. I love Lake William Hovell, and consider it to be my “home ground” as it is the lake that I go trout fishing in the most due to it’s close proximity to where I live.
Lake WIlliam Hovell is not just a wonderful trout fishing lake, but it is also a great redfin fishing lake as well, but more so in the warmer months.
In this video I am bait fishing for trout using worms as bait. Angling with worms if you like. Worms make the best trout bait when there is a lot of fresh water around, and given that Lake WIlliam Hovell filled up from 30% only a few weeks ago, it makes sense that the winter trout fishing should be good if using worms for bait.
On the way home from ytour fishing, I decided to stop at the King River and get some later afternoon video footage to compliment my video. The moment I stopped recrding a Sambar deer honked me. I kid you not, I missed recording the honk by no more than 2 or 3 seconds. It was so loud that I jumped so high that I almost landed in the King River.
I started recording again and the Sambar deer honked me again. SO I managed to get audio of the Samber deer honking later in the video.
An awesome sound that a lot of deer hunter and trout fisherman would be familiar with.
