Atlantic Salmon At Large

Recently Atlantic salmon seems to be a very hot topic amongst local anglers, especially those in the south of the state in the D'Entrecasteaux area. Northern anglers should take a close look at the Tamar as there are opportunities here as well.

Huntsman Lake Report 23/6/2012

Here's a report on a couple of hours at the Huntsman on Saturday afternoon. You could say it was a bit cool, but that's fishing for this time of year.
Arrived out there 3.30 fished till dark (5.30) landed 6 browns, keeping 3 for in-laws and released the rest.
Had a lot of takes (just on dark), some right at my feet . A couple were slabs but the ones I kept were full of small black beetles and caddis. Spoke to 2 fly fisherman, one had 2 fish for the day the other had zip.
I started on hard bodies ( no luck) and changed to the trusty Berkley black and gold t tails.
2 casts later,.. fish on!
I fished the old road side of the lake, its very high again covering a lot of the grass in front of B.B.Q area.
OK, tight lines,
