MANY anglers will be pleased to hear the three-month closed season for Murray cod fishing will not apply to Lake ­Eildon this spring. 

This means that anglers will still be able to fish for Murray cod so long as they abide by the fisheries rules and regulations that pertain to the catching and keeping of Murray cod. 

Fisheries Victoria executive director Travis Dowling said this was the first year that fishers could target and keep Murray cod from Lake Eildon during September, October and November.
