Another successful Trout Weekend

by Tim Farell Inland Fisheries Service

What a success, 4 000 people, car park full and 150 cars in the overflow car park. As a consequence of the huge attendance the local police officer spent three hours on the Lake Highway directing traffic on the Saturday and one and a half hours on Sunday. The weather was cold and misty but most the people had come prepared dressed in warm clothing, although a few people were spotted wearing t-shirts. Exhibitors included MAST, Hydro Tasmania, Quarantine Tasmania, the Cancer Council, tackle stores, outdoor equipment stores, Cressy Trout Expo, Anglers Alliance Tasmania and the Fox Task Force. The Bothwell District School had over 60 paintings on display produced by the local children. There were demonstrations of fly tying and fly-casting that proved popular as well.

Brushy Lagoon 5/8/2012

We headed to Brushy Lagoon at lunchtime. Patrick landed 2 Atlantic salmon before we even left the boat ramp. Then we fished out of the boat for a couple of hours picking up another four. We loaded up the boat and cooked up a couple snags and Patrick caught another one off the boat ramp. All were between 6 - 7 pound.
We then headed to Four Springs for the last couple hours of daylight. Jamie only managed a couple on pumpkinseed. Couldn't catch any on the t-tail.

Stu, Jamie and Patrick
