Sea runners - Early Season Excitement - Christopher Bassano

Presented from Issue 100
Considering the world class quality of our sea trout fishery, these fish are not sought after by enough anglers. Sea runners live in the salt water and run up our estuaries and rivers from the start of August to the middle of November. At this time of the year, they are here to eat the many species of fish that are either running up the rivers to spawn or are living in and around the estuary systems. Trout, both sea run and resident (Slob Trout) feed heavily on these small fish which darken in colouration as they move further into fresh water reaches.

The majority of these predatory fish are brown trout with rainbows making up a very small percentage of the catch. They can be found all around the state but it would be fair to say that the east coast is the least prolific of all the areas. They still run up such rivers as the Georges (and many others) but their numbers along with the quality of the fishing elsewhere make it difficult to recommend the area above the larger northern, southern and western rivers.

We would like to make you aware that we have recently posted a report by Stewart Dick on our website that reports on the recent Commonwealth Fly Fishing Championships held in Canada. Congratulations to team 'Australia Gold' who won the team bronze medal at this event. We would also like to congratulate team 'Australia Green' as we know both Australian teams worked together closely as a group, and the success belongs to all Australian angers who attended the event, not just the gold team members.
