Tyenna River 11/12/2012

I had some work to do in Hobart yesterday & Trev came along for support just in case we found a small stream somewhere on the way back.
“It so happened” that we did stumble across the Tyenna River after about an hour driving from Hobart.
We soon found a spot to start the search for our first ever Tyenna trout.
As soon as we started looking, we spotted fish ... Not that easy to catch though, being this close to the road.
I think they might have had every lure and fly in southern Tasmania chucked at them.

South Esk River 28/11/2012

I had a couple of hours off today so I decided to hook on the tinny and explore the South Esk River in my little 12 foot tinny. I managed 7 in very short time, 3 taken on a klinkhammer dry and the rest on the orange bead - head nymph.

Leven River Report 19/10/2012

I had an appointment at Devonport planned today, so I organised a day off work, I also thought with all the rivers down that way, why wouldn't I take the boat? Naturally Trev came along for the ride , ..with the Leven our river of choice. With only a couple of hours to spare, we were hoping to snare a sea runner; hopefully I would be lucky this time, especially after Trevs effort last week.

The Tasmanian Greens today raised concerns that DPIPWE had ignored its own scientific advice

Tyenna River 23/9/2012

Another day at the Tyenna had me land this 10.5lb solid buck brown..
Just a short stroll from the main Derwent River itself, a quiet little spot had me hooked straight away as I stood looking through the thick scrub at two very nice fish from what I could make out two very nice size females est 5-8lb.

Mersey River @ Latrobe

Had a quick flick at the road bridge at Latrobe yesterday on the Spreyton side on the top side of the bridge, had my little man set up with a worm on beside the bridge so I could not cover water but still managed 2 nice fish on a rapala husky jerk. Water level has just dropped nicely and starting to clear up as I'm sure it has in most rivers and bait present so good time to hit the lower limits in our rivers guys. Tight Lines.

Tyenna River

A recent trip to the Tyenna River had me land this 9 1/2 pound brown not quite tipping the double figures..though loosing half a pound or more having nothing at all in it's stomach and being a tad slabby.

My best trout to date though hooked and lost some nice trout ( as the story always goes "THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY" ) but it took two goes to land this one as it did get away the first time but not far. The river was up and flowing pretty hard and i found a nice little eddy in which was resonably still and held a bit of structure a few small logs and things a good spot for a trout to be sitting I thought, i was right.

North Esk River 17/8/2012

As soon as school finished, Bailey & I had a look at the Upper Nth.Esk River this afternoon. The river was still running clear despite all the rain, we found the fishing a bit hard. We managed five brownies up to around 2lb, all caught on black n gold t.tails. We dropped a couple as well.

Mersey River 4/8/2012

We spent the much awaited opening day flicking a Rapala in the few hundred meters below the road bridge at Latrobe and found some good fish.  I landed 5 fish between 1 to a bit over 4 pound, (2 being sea runners),.. lost a few as well in a hectic 3 hour season.
Arrived at 8:30 and caught the first at 9:30 so I don't think an early start is worth it until the water warms up a little, will be a great year for river fishing.
Tight Lines Guys,
Leigh.

Derwent River Report 4/8/2012

Attached is a photo of 2 trout which I caught in the Derwent River about 2km above the New Norfolk Bridge..
They were caught on opening day of the trout season during the Derwent Valley Inter-club Challenge which was run by the NNLAA, the waters being from Below Meadowbank to the Tasman Bridge. Tight Lines!!
Ian Johnson - PS..we are about to eat them for Dinner!!

Derwent River

President Reg Travers sent me this photo today.
He fished the Derwent River this morning and landed four fish similar to this one, all around the four pound mark.
Lure of choice was Dale's Yep Hardbodys.
Well done mate,
Regards, Todd
