Sea-run trout fishing this year got off to a cracking start in most areas, with the majority of anglers employing nearly every trout fishing technique to secure fish in local estuaries statewide.
Even those anglers fishing the "off-season" lower down in our estuaries for sea-trout commented on the number of fish moving in early August.
It was a windy day at Lake Leake, but we still decided to go out on the lake. We were in our mates 12.6 foot dinghy, we trolled all the way up to the top end. We were flicking some green & gold lures around, and I hooked a fish, and my friend said, "You have just got grass" but the fish jumped out of the water. When we landed it, it came in at 53cm and 2.76 pound. It was a good fish. After that we trolled back home and the weather was getting worse, so we wound the lines in and went back to the boat ramp. It was my 1st fish for the season. And my biggest so far!

Apart from yesterday afternoon (where the wind got a bit wild for a time), it was fantastic weather for camping.
Fly fishing “early morning” seems to be the best bet here at the moment, although President Jim was talking to a fellow camper who had a great day a fortnight ago on duns in the Big Timber area around midday, where he landed 7.
We fished the opening day of trout season with Bailey at Lake leake,arrived at Kalangadoo boat ramp around 10am,lake calm as a mill pond. We managed one small rainbow around 1lb in Kalangadoo bay,then we fished the big timber shore and got a 1lb brownie,lost a couple more.
Decided to go to Lake Leake this morning, very cold early. Started to fish about seven, Victors day today he got two nice browns (slightly underweight) and a nice rainbow and returned another small rainbow.
A couple of other strikes and follow ins. All fish had a belly full of stick caddis. I couldn't fish much my shoulder as hurting.

The first Atlantic salmon eggs used to begin Tasmania's Atlantic salmon aquaculture industry were introduced into Tasmania in 1984. From these humble beginnings a valuable Tasmanian industry has evolved with a worldwide reputation for having a premium disease free product. This industry provides a spin off to all anglers in the form of regular escapes of salmon from the farms.
