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!

Mersey River Trout Opening Report

I fished the Mersey Saturday from the road bridge at Latrobe down into the tidal reaches, thanks to the recent stocking from the fisheries the fishing was good. I landed 6 between 1 to 2.5 pound on berkley smelt pearl and grey 4 inch plastics, good mate Andy mixed it up lure wise and landed one so it's safe to say that they are a stand out lure, they look anything but a trout lure but who can argue with results.

Mersey Bream 2011-05-22

Hit the middle reaches of the Mersy this morning with mate Andy, being low tide we fished the edges of the drop off casting hard to shore, plenty of salmon around smashing bait but only the small models, no flatties about which was disappointing. They make a good by catch while searching for our target the mighty black bream, I caught one on a green fry gulp, nice fish of 1.34kg, not being in big numbers in the Mersy one fish while fishing with plastics in a session is a successful trip. I am 5 from 5 this year so it's well worth having a crack at and the fish here like the Tamar are huge, fish over the 2kg mark are very common, Andy missed out again, sorry mate maybe next time.

Mersey Bream

Fished the Mersey Estuary Sunday morning with good friend Andy Heyhow, as the tide had turned and had been running out for an hour we fished the flats at the golf course hoping to find the bream still cruising the shallow margins. We drifted with the run out for stealth but found nothing doing.  We headed back to the channel off Quoiba and flicked plastics along the edges and soon come up tight on a cracker around the 2kg mark, after testing my drag to the limits for 5 minutes I had him beside the boat and the net in the water when the hook pulled and flew past my head.

Mersey River Report

by Leigh Carpenter Hit the Mersey River middle reaches at dawn Sunday morning in search of Bream and fishing with plastics.
Landed one on a Squidgy bloodworm 100mm, nice fish 1.98kg and 48cm long.  We fished the low tide mark were the water quickly drops off into the channel along the oyster racks that run along the southern shore.  Keep your lure down deep and retrieve as you would for trout.

Recent Stocking of the Coal River

by Sarah Graham
The Inland Fisheries Service stocked the Coal River with 5,000 wild stock brown trout fingerling weighing around 20 g, on Tuesday 22 February. The young fish were marked by a clipping of the adipose fin so that they can be identified in future surveys to monitor the stocking effectiveness. They were put into 14 different locations in lots of 3-400, from below Craigbourne Dam to Fingerpost Bridge, south of Campania.

Anglers Access - Meander River

By Tim Farrell  of the IFS
Tasmania’s Northern rivers enjoy a reputation as one of the State’s premier trout fishing areas. The Inland Fisheries Service (IFS) and Anglers Alliance Tasmania are implementing an Anglers Access project on the Meander River that will enhance this reputation. The project follows successful projects completed on the River Leven, Brumbys Creek and the Lake and Macquarie rivers.

Pieman River 2nd / 3rd October 2010

Hi all, we had 2 fantastic days of perfect weather on the Pieman river, no whitebait in the river yet so we didn’t even spot a sea runner splash.

Fishing around Cradle Mountain

Shane Flude
The Cradle Mountain area is well known to locals and tourists alike and most are aware what this special region has to offer. What many don’t know however is that this area is also home to some particularly good trout fishing in both rivers and lakes. This article describes several of the main waters which are worth fishing in and around the Cradle Mountain area.

Small streams are sweet

I never kill many fish; not because I believe the fishery won't stand
it, but more because they aren't welcome at home. My wife has a strong
aversion to the smell of fish around the house and sometimes when I
get some flathead and cook it on the BBQ out the back she can still
smell it. She is fine with it in a restaurant, but it is just any hint
of fishy smell is a big no-no.

Scamander River - Springtime Bream

One of Jamie Henderson's favourite times of the year on the East Coast is the late spring months of October and November. It's at this time that the everyday angler can experience some of the best bream fishing in Tasmania on the Scamander River, a mere 15 minute drive south of St Helens. The bream spawn during the spring months and by late spring are in large numbers throughout the river system. They are hungry, ready for action and can be caught on bait, lures and fly. The river is easily accessed by small boat and in the lower reaches offers excellent shore based fishing for those without a watercraft or with the family in tow.
