Dan Clifton

As the open season on trout waters arrives there will many keen anglers heading to the highlands to catch the first of the hungry, post spawn, browns.
With the winter well underway and some heavy frosts often covering the ground, I find myself keeping my trout fishing close to home. It is great to get home to a warm house, shower, warm meal and I really like my own bed.

Anglers Access - North Esk River at "Ballroom'

by Sarah Graham IFS

Ron Dennis, owner of the "Ballroom" property on the North Esk River has been conducting his own war on the willows and gorse that infest much of this beautiful river. As a result he has successfully cleared approx 3 km of river bank.

Ron Dennis, owner of the "Ballroom" property on the North Esk River has been conducting his own war on the willows and gorse that infest much of this beautiful river.

As a result he has successfully cleared approx 3 km of river bank.

Such is Ron's generous nature that now the river resembles its natural state he wants to share it with other like minded anglers who will appreciate and enjoy his efforts.

Ron was aware of the Anglers Access project on the Macquarie River and through a mutual contact the IFS agreed to install similar stiles and signage as a demonstration site on the North Esk.

The IFS hopes that this will encourage other landowners to become involved in proactive riparian management and promoting anglers access to more of our fabulous river fisheries.

The "Ballroom" is located approx 15 km East of White Hills on the C401.

Ron asks that anglers respect his privacy and observe the No Access signs in the immediate vicinity of the farmhouse.
