Woods Lake a mecca for early season anglers

Woods Lake continues to be one of the most exciting trout fisheries in Tasmania. Catch rates are high with many anglers taking limit bags of five fish. It should be noted regulations are quite specific to Woods Lake. A 5 fish bag limit applies for Woods Lake, with a minimum length of 300 mm and only two fish exceeding 600 mm.

 

Lures, trolling and casting have had very good success as has fly fishing with Woolly Bugger style flies. Squidgy Flick Baits have probably done the best for lure fishers with around a 3 gram jig head. Try Evil Minnow, Flash Prawn and Shimmy Shrimp colours.
