From the Archives ...

Presented from Issue 111, August 2014
With the opening of the trout season on us it’s time to review the good old trout diary and look back at what has worked and where with the new season in mind. I know each season is different however most of us will be suffering the cabin type fever associated with our winter closure and itching to get back into it.

I have reviewed the past few years and narrowed down the best waters and techniques.

Although I live for the warm days of high summer when trout will rise freely to my rather scrappy homemade dries, the fly rod rarely leaves its tube in the first two months of the season so this article will concentrate on the lures, locations and methods that have served me well.

Lake Augusta West 13/3/2012

Hi all, we fished Lake Augusta West today with Bailey and Jack Shennan, on our way home from Lake King William. There was a S.W wind blowing about 15 to 20 knots with sunny periods. We caught 13 fat trout, one being a rainbow which Jack landed.

All of the fish were caught on softies, Bailey & Jack had a go with the fly rod,... but not this time.
We had plenty of hits, follows and lost several. The lake is very low, with the motor hitting the bottom of lake bed a few times.
We kept these fish as we wanted a few for the smoker and we have been releasing most of the fish we had previously caught on other trips, as you can see, a top weekend was had.
