Look after the Easter Stocks

So Easter is upon us again - another great chance to do some fishing and a great time for rabbits (unless they are chocolate)  
But it's not such a great time of the year if you happen to be a fish.
This year for Easter, let's take particular care to do the right thing and let's all do our bit to make sure we have fish for the future.
If I may, I'd like to offer just a few pointers...... nothing new, but every bit helps.

When you have finished for the day, why not have a brag about the ones that didn't get away! Send Mike an article on your fishing (Click here for contact details), and we'll get it published here. Have fun fishing -

Hello everyone, I thought it would be a good time to introduce myself.

The updated Hydro Tasmania lake levels page

The lake levels published by Hydro Tasmania have always been of interest to anglers as a guide to how well lakes may be fishing. Fluctuations in levels often have a direct influence over the behaviour of trout. A lake's level at the time of fishing can have a bearing on where anglers can fish and safely navigate on some lakes.
You can click on this link to take you to the Lake Levels page - Lake Levels
For some time the only information that anglers could obtain was the height of water levels on some Hydro Tasmania controlled waters for a particular day. This has now changed with Hydro Tasmania publishing trends in water level fluctuations for a week prior in detail as well as the trend for the 12 months prior to the day. This information is now shown as a graphical display in two separate charts for all Hydro waters except Great Lake and Lake Liapootah.

Access to this information can be found on this website by going to the "Going Fishing" header, then "Things to Check" section (left hand collumn of the website) and clicking on the Lake Levels page which then gives a link to Hydro Lake levels page.
