Well peoples, it is not that far away! On Saturday the 1st of September, all hell will break loose on the Victorian trout streams. As usual, fisheries are running their trout season opening festivals at Eildon and Ballarat.

Does the NSW season for trout open on the same day? cheers Team Bender Likes putting people on hold!
