Up top early – Highlands rewards the hardy – Christopher Bassano

Yes it is cold—some even think miserable, but wow, the fishing can be fantastic. After three months of winter and very little fishing, the beginning of August is the traditional start of the fishing season. Many people leave it until the central highlands warm up before venturing ‘up top’ but by waiting that long, you could be missing out.

Pieman River 2nd / 3rd October 2010

Hi all, we had 2 fantastic days of perfect weather on the Pieman river, no whitebait in the river yet so we didn’t even spot a sea runner splash.

We did manage to get  35 browns and rainbows.

We were getting hits every few casts, a “stinger hook” in the plastic would have been very handy.

We were casting into the very fast flowing water, a couple of winds then bang!!

The fish were mostly caught on a 3 inch “salt n pepper” with a very heavy jig head.

Also a “black n gold “Ashley.

We travelled 120 km on the river.... can’t wait to go again .

4 hours of easy driving from home to Corrina.... beautiful accommodation.
