Mersey River Report 16/10/2011

We fished the Mersey River this afternoon from Lovett’s flats, down river.
The river here has great access and many good rapids and runs and despite being fished heavily, it is still fishing pretty well.

St Patricks River

We had a look at St.Patricks river late this afternoon with Bailey, he was supposed to go fishing with Dale and Trev but Dale was a bit crook so that was the end of that.

South Esk (2) 01/10/2011

Phil has been giving away a few of his secrets,  so it was off to the South Esk for a couple of hours for Trev and I.
We caught 8 lovely fish in various sizes, all in the one location.
They where caught on YEP Red rascals clear Galaxid and rainbow ripper .
 

South Esk Report (1) 1/10/2011

Had a fish out to the Sth Esk this morning with Bailey, got there at around 10.30am and finished at 1.30pm, had to get home to watch Grand final, just made it.
Anyway we had a fab morning catching 17 brownies, size was from 1lb to nearly 2lb.
Bails caught eleven on hard bodys and i got six on softies, black & gold yeps and berkleys.

Macquarie River 23/09/2011

Bailey and I headed out to the Macquarie river after work today, fished from 4.30 to 6.30pm. We haven't fished here for a couple of years, thought it might be worth a look now that it has a good flow of water again after a couple of years being effected by drought conditions.

South Esk River 11/9/2011

We fished the Sth. Esk River on Sunday afternoon with Bailey and his mate Jack Seabourne.
Fished from 1.30pm and finished around 3.30pm, river running clear and dropped to good height now. We caught 14 fish on Dale’s black and gold flappers, lost a few including “one beauty” that would have been 4lb plus.
The fish caught, went from around 1lb to 2lb and were in really good condition, fish had been feeding on stick caddis.

Upper Meander Report September 4th

Bailey and I decided to give the Upper Meander river a go this afternoon, not a bad way to spend Fathers day.
Got to our spot around 12 noon and fished till 3.30pm. We caught 10 nice river browns, one around the 5lb mark. The condition of this old boy not too flash, but a nice fish all the same.
Others went from 3/4 lb to  1lb mark, all fish were released.

North West Bay River 31st August 2011

Just thought I'd send you a story from the North West Bay River as my guess is you haven't had one before. A few of us fish the river on a regular basis as it is only minutes from where we live and work.
It is unusual not to catch a fish but the size is generally less than 1lb. In saying that we have landed quite a few fish round the 2 - 3lb mark ( mostly searunners ) and the odd Atlantic Salmon.

Derwent Sea Runner

My names Daniel Crane. I caught a Derwent Sea Runner on Friday 19th just gone in the upper reaches of the Derwent just below Bridgewater. It weighed just shy of three pounds and fell to a Berkley Pearl olive Flick Bait in which the fish just smashed nearly swallowing the whole soft plastic.

Tyenna River Monster

Matty Dayton landed a massive fish (27lb 5oz uncleaned) just after lunch on opening weekend 7 August on 4lb Berkley Stealth braid and a 6lb Maxima leader. A MIRACLE from the Tyenna River.
The National Park Weir strikes again!
