Atlantic Salmon At Large

Atlantic Salmon At Large

Recently Atlantic salmon seems to be a very hot topic amongst local anglers, especially those in the south of the state in the D'Entrecasteaux area. Northern anglers should take a close look at the Tamar as there are opportunities here as well.  
The recent "great escape" has provided a perfect opportunity for fresh and saltwater anglers alike to experience some truly memorable sport. Tasmania's pristine, clean and cool waters are the perfect nursery for the Atlantic Salmon and as our local fish farms produce more and more fresh quality seafood it is a fact that there are going to be tangible consequences.

Beautifully coloured wild brown troutEleven Trout Caught In One Hour & Twenty Minutes 3-2-2016

I had around two hours before the wife came home before I had to take her up to the daughters at Cradle Mountain, so I decided to get in a quick session on a small river 10 minutes from home.. Once there I started flicking the little black fury around in the tannin coloured river and had a hit & miss on the second cast. The next little stretch gave up three nice little river browns with the best one going around 290gms and beautifully conditioned too.

 

Knowing I didn't have long in the river I kept working my way upstream flicking the spinner around getting a hit on nearly every cast. After 30 minutes of fishing I had only landed 5 browns from 8 hook ups. I changed over to a copper bladed black fury and that worked a treat as I picked up another 6 browns from just seven hook ups. I also had heaps of hit & misses too. In the 1hr & 20 minutes I was in the river I managed 11 nice little river browns.. I wished I had gone an hour earlier.. I know where I'm heading to at 6.00am in the morning..

cheers
Adrian
