Sea Run Trout

Mid Sea-Run Season Report


Sea-run trout fishing this year got off to a cracking start in most areas, with the majority of anglers employing nearly every trout fishing technique to secure fish in local estuaries statewide.

MetEye – Bureau stakeholder user trial – we need you!

Later this year the Bureau of Meteorology will release its new forecast viewer, called Meteye. But before we do we’d appreciate it if you and your friends or colleagues would trial it and give us your feedback.

Simply go to: http://www.bom.gov.au/australia/meteye/ and enter

Username = meteye

Your feedback will help us finalise the webpages for general release in the coming months.

New features

Feedback from the first trial late last year was very helpful and since then we’ve added some features and upgraded the Map display and Text Views. MetEye can be driven by point and click using a mouse, but we would also like you to use MetEye’s other features on a daily basis, specifically:

·        The search functions (using postcode or location name) to find a forecast for different locations around Australia.

·        The Text View option for displaying a weather forecast for any location

·        The ‘Display 3 hourly forecast’ option within the Text View which show values for the next 7 days
(available everywhere except Queensland and the Northern Territory)

Further background is described in the MetEye brochure (attached).

Providing feedback to the Bureau

Please send your feedback to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., or via the feedback icon on MetEye.

We look forward to hearing from you, and encourage you to share the link with your friends or colleagues.
