Good news for River Derwent Anglers

Anglers and boaters alike will be pleased with recent improvements to the popular Prince of Wales Boat Ramp off Gepp Parade. Jointly funded by MAST and the Glenorchy City Council the works included resurfacing and upgrading the ramp to the recommended gradient of 1:8 which will allow for all tide use. Users will also enjoy the addition of a pontoon system which will significantly aid launching and retrieving of vessels, not to mention the boarding of passengers etc.

Mersey River 14/4/2012

We headed back up the Mersey this afternoon with Mr “Hard body Howard" and his son Trevor.
This was my second trip with them to this particular area and I have come to the conclusion that Dale only brings me to carry and clean his fish.
Once again he caught 99 percent of the 11 landed; he sure has this water sorted!

About NOT fishing the Meander River

What a waste it was - a morning drive to fish the Meander River. It was a nice a day for fishing too. On arriving at the Meander about ¾ km above Barretts Bridge on Longridge Road I slipped into the waders and made my way down to the river bank. Just as I was about to slip into the river I could hear a noise coming up the river.

`Mersey River Report 25/3/2012

I received a phone call from Dale Howard yesterday, and in his usual unmistakable fashion he said, “whatcha doing tomorrow robot?” - (Don’t ask about the robot name), “because if you like, I will take you and our young blokes to one of my special spots on the Mersey for a couple of hours.”

Mersey River Report18/03/2012

Unfortunately, work all weekend prevented Trev and I from heading off too far,... up until this afternoon, so as soon as I knocked off we headed up to the Mersey for a look.
Waders on and a quick walk downstream for about a kilometre, working our way back up to the car.

Derwent Bream Report

Howdy fellow Fishermen - So, after not being out to have a crack at a Bream in over 8 months, I finally got to do so over the weekend.
I headed down to Hobart on Friday to pick up Isaac and head up the coast that night to chase some Bream on surface on Saturday. By the time Isaac knocked off work Friday arvo there was no need to rush to get up the coast as we were only camping to get an early start for the following day.

Mersey Snapper

We went down the mouth of the Mersey River this afternoon to check out what the warm water has bought in. Hit the water around 7:30 till 9pm, (should have made a night of it but had to get the kids home).  Caught 2 draft board sharks which the kids loved, not me so much, and a couple of snapper which put a smile on my face, they fight great and that tell tale head shake gets the adrenaline pumping.  All fish caught on squid with just a standard paternoster rig.

Leven River - 30/11/11

With humid conditions I was undecided where to fish today, so tossed a coin heads will go to the Leven River and tails to the Meander River. Heads it was. On arriving at the Leven my usual area I fish was flowing very fast and having to cross it there was too risky, so I moved further upstream to another of my favourite fishing zones.

Tangle with a Tiger on the Macquarie

Some wise words written below fellow Presidents, luckily it has a happy ending. Thanks President Mick for the timely reminder as the warmer weather approaches.
President Todd.

G’day all,
I haven’t had many chances to get a lot of fishing in this year, but on Friday (after looking out the window all day at the glorious weather) I jumped in the car after work, packed in my fly rod and went for a look on the Macquarie near Cressy.

South Esk Report 13/11/2011

Bailey and I fished the Sth.Esk river for a couple of hours this afternoon, we were supposed to have a fish with Dale and Trev today, but looking at last night’s weather forecast for state-wide rain, I canned it for Bailey and myself.

Leven River Report 6/11/2011

Trev and I had a couple of hours fishing the Leven River on Sunday after a tip off from a mate at work.
The first fish caught was on the first cast of the day and it just got better from there!.
