Great success Saturday!

After rising at 6:00 am to go for a morning fish, all I could hear was wind and rain, but that didn’t stop me from going. I left at 7:00 am and walked to the lake. There was weed on top of the lake everywhere so it was making it hard to get casts in without getting weed on the lure. I fished for 2 hours more without a hit so I decided to head home for a warm up and some breakfast. But I wasn’t going to give up, so at 1:30 pm Samuel and I went for a fish at one of our favourite spots.

Time was going by with only seeing 1 fish and no hook ups, I was starting to doubt if I was going to get any until I saw a little shadow behind my lure. Next I felt a little tap so I striked and hooked a little brown 1.5 pound and 40cm long. I was happy because it was the first trout for the season.

Lake River and Huntsmans Lake Report

Fished the Lake River on Monday 22nd November and with river levels still high there were not many fish showing. Caught a few and saw a few, but they were reluctant fish. With all rivers still high and with good flows the season will improve. Most rivers will have received another rise in level as rain over the weekend of 27/28 November gives them a boost.
Fished Huntsman Lake on Saturday morning 27 November in very calm conditions. There were plenty of fish right on the shallow shores. Some were even in behind the sticks and virtually impossible to present a fly to. Broke three off whilst attempting the impossible and landed one of less than a kilo. On the way back to the ramp there were quite a few fish taking midges in the middle of the flat calm. Got the fly in front of a few, but no takes. I heard after the Saturday night rain it was spilling again.
