Well it was lovely and sunny with very little breeze when I left Sheffield at 12.30pm for a session back to the same creek that I fished a couple of days ago. Once there the cloud had moved in and there was a stiff breeze blowing making it quite cool. The water level had dropped by some 5-6 inches too, but it's temperature hadn't. It was icy cold, same as two days ago. Today I'm testing a couple of new hard body lures for a small tackle company. These are a small 5 cm floating hard body lure in a rainbow & a brown trout pattern.

Leven River Report 19/10/2012

I had an appointment at Devonport planned today, so I organised a day off work, I also thought with all the rivers down that way, why wouldn't I take the boat? Naturally Trev came along for the ride , ..with the Leven our river of choice. With only a couple of hours to spare, we were hoping to snare a sea runner; hopefully I would be lucky this time, especially after Trevs effort last week.

We launched the boat at the Ulverstone boat ramp (very good ramp) and quickly headed upstream with a low incoming tide.
Almost immediately after putting the lures in the water the cocky salmon were onto them!
Following a bit of fun, we powered upstream to get away from the chaos and it wasn't long before the little browns started taking the lures.
This river is loaded with cocky salmon and small trout.
We didn't manage the monster sea runner we were seeking but what a great way to spend the afternoon exploring a spot I haven't fished before.
Back to work tomorrow, so that's it for the weekend.
Time to pick up my Trout Waters of Tasmania book by Greg French and see where we end up next week
