Great day with twenty five trout caught 4-2-2016
I had intended having a 6.00am start on the river this morning but I didn't hit the river until 10.00am for some reason. Had a bit of trouble getting the body to loosen up today was half of the problem. With the sun high and full on the water I wasn't sure if the trout would be on the take in these conditions. Well they were on, with the very first cast I had a small brown take the copper black fury. Two casts later in the same run I had another small brown in hand. The sun on the water isn't going to be a problem at all by the looks of it. The next three stretches of river all gave up 6 fish ranging in size from 240gms up to 360gms. I had also hooked and lost four others in those runs too, so with eight caught from 12 hook ups I was still pretty satisfied with the fishing so far.
Solid 520gm brown trout.
The further I worked my way upstream the better the fishing became, there was no stopping them at all this morning. These browns were just so full of aggression, I was stoked too.. With the rivers being so low for so long and then with the 190mms of rain we had here a week ago it's just what was needed. The shallow fast waters were holding not just one fish but sometimes up to three trout. I could see them pushing and bumping one another to get at the little copper black fury as I worked it down through the fast water. Two of the browns that I caught and released in the fast water went 520ms & 490gms and were only in four inches of water. I had been in the river for just on two hours when I decided to call it a day. A good one it was too because in the two hours of spin fishing this little river I had caught and released 25 browns from 32 hook ups. I could have fished on but I thought I leave the next stretch of river for another day.. Today's catch takes my season tally over the 450 mark (457) too which is good.
