  • Ep69 – Matt Mildren: Dartmouth Dam and Trolling Techniques for Trout

In this episode I’m joined by Matt Mildren to talk all about chasing Trout at Dartmouth. It was great to have Matt on to talk a little bit of Trout fishing jumping into the history of Dartmouth, the fish species, the size and layout of the lake. We then talk about the Trout in the system, the best approach, key lures and seasons.

Matt also jumps in and explains trolling for Trout in detail and how he uses different gear throughout the year to target them effectively. We then finish up with a few cod stories.

Matt writes a monthly report on Dartmouth Dam. It’s available inside the SF Membership along with other reports from NSW and VIC. You can learn more here.
