An open waters competition opened the new season for the Stawell and District Angling Club.
Although the weather wasn't the best of conditions, the fishing is still a little slow but with the weather on the improve, the fishing will follow suite.
Anglers fished Taylors Lake, Green Lake, Lake Wendouree and also Lake Fyans, where most fish were caught.
Greame Nuske began the season well landing three reddies at Fyans for a total length of 995cm from Dave Wilson's two reddies at 80 cm, also from Fyans.
Doug Collins fished Green Lake for two nice redfin measuring 70cm.
Wyatt Blake tried his luck at Taylors landing two silver perch at 80.5cm to take the honours for the junior section. Wyatt returned the silvers back to the water for someone else to catch at a later date.
Damien Keirl fished Lake Wendouree for a plump 60cm brown trout for the longest fish award.
The next club outing is at Lake Fyans from 6am Saturday the 5th until 11 am Sunday the 6th of October.
New members are very welcome to join the comp.
