Weekly Hatch Chart and Hot spots.

Hatch Chart

Meander River: Parachute Adams variant's in sizes #12 and smaller. Claret nymphs with gold and copper beads. Hopper patterns and larger terrestrials are starting to get about.

North Esk River: Elk hair caddis and royal humpies in #12 - #16 and a variety of beetle patterns, red tags, etc. Larger unweighted nymphs in black and brown. 

Meander Dam (Lake Huntsman): Loads of fish found rising in the evenings on large midge and ant falls. Small red tags in #16 and smaller, and small ant variants have been getting them unstuck. 

Hot Spots

Lake St Clair: Gum beetle falls are thick at the moment. There is great dry fly opportunities to be had. Usually brightly coloured beetle patterns and bristol hopper variants do the trick. Blind fishing dries is the way to go...

Western Lakes (19 Lagoons): Good water levels on most of the lakes, perfect for this time of year. Plenty of fish are found looking up with some good mayfly hatches being recorded. Also has been some good beetle falls on the hotter days. Black spinners, brown parachute patterns and tag varieties are great fly choices for this time of year in the 19's and the further back lakes. 

Woods Lake: Mayflies are hatching well in and around the weeded bays, along with damsels starting to get up and around. Still no wind days can be tough, although when the wind gets up the fishing reports have been good. Plenty of fish found in and around the wind lanes, fishing large dries with orange bead nymphs fished statically below.
