The Tasmanian Trout Season So Far

The Tasmanian trout season is well under way, and with the warmer weather we have been having the fishing is starting to warm up as well. Logan Reid is a keen young fly fisher and whenever he gets the chance to get out on the water he will take it. Logan has done multiple sessions on the rivers and the lakes and wanted to share what he has found so far this season. Logan is located in the northern end of the state in Launceston and has traveled around fishing the local rivers and streams. One highlight for Logan so far was his trips to the Meander River and the fish he found inhabiting its waters. One trip in particular Logan and his mate found many fish in a short stretch of river and a few were willing to rise to a dry. Logan said, "searching the edges of the river with a dry dropper rig bought many fish unstuck ". Searching out the shallower slower moving water around the edges bought them a few dry fly feeders which delighted the lads. They found a few rainbows amongst the browns only a few with about one rainbow to 10 browns being caught. Its been good to have that variety in fish in the river. The flies the boys were using were elk hair caddis. royal wulffs and brown spinners for dries. And also pheasant tail nymphs, seals fur nymphs and hairs ear nymphs.
Logan and his mate also fished the shallow highland lakes looking for some tailing trout. The boys walked into the 19 lagoons from the boom gate at Augusta early one morning and walked in whilst it was still dark. The boys arrived to the lake at first light and were greeted by waves from a few tailing trout in the first bay they found. Logan threw a stick caddis in front of a fish and a few seconds later he noticed his leader pulling away from him so set the hook. The line pulled tight and the fish was on. that was their first fish for the day. The best flies they found were fur flies, stick caddis and fuzzle buggers. Fish were spooky when the sun came up and the weather was still. We encourage you to get out onto the water and see what you can find.
