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.
