menader-river-2014-11-10-bThe Meander River fished well, but all small Brown Trout

With the wind coming from a variety of directions today I headed on over to the Meander River for a spin session. I arrived there at 1.20pm much earlier than I would normally hit a river, but I new the area I was going to fish would have good shade along most of the 1.5 kms of river from thick vegetation along the river banks. On my arrival I found the river was running around six inches higher than my last trip here as well. It just meant that some of the areas where I cross over will take a little longer than they normally do due to the stronger flow.

Today we were greeted with a medium 10 knot Sth Easterly breeze and another afternoon trip was on the the way. This time it was to be a stint on the Meander River above Deloraine. Once there I was happy to see the river level was down by around 125mms lower than my trip here a week or two ago and it was just about the right height.

Small reward for the time spent in the Meander River 14/4/2014

Left for the Meander River this morning in bright sunshine and very cool conditions in the hope of picking up a few nice browns that will be in an aggressive mood. On my arrival at Meander it was still calm and sunny and around 8 degrees which was fine. I soon had the waders and boots etc on and was just reaching my entry point to the river when up came the wind and then the cloud moved in with it. I couldn't believe it, how come it's waited for me to hit the river and then decided to change to these conditions. I was glad that I left my jumper on that's for sure. 

JUST  AN  AVERAGE  SESSION  ON  THE  MEANDER  RIVER  TODAY 31/3/2014

Being the last day of March and  given that the conditions were pretty good I thought I would give the Meander River a go today after lunch. The weather was a little on the humid side with a light East to North Easterly breeze and very heavy cloud cover making it reasonably good for trout fishing. The only down fall was the wind direction, but in saying that it was very light and so it hopefully won't effect the fishing that much. 

Meander River BROWNS  VERY  FEW  AND  FAR  BETWEEN  TODAY 6/3/2014

With the forecast being for fine and mild conditions I thought it worth while to head over to the Meander River this morning for a few hours. I wasn't happy with the wind direction that came with the forecast though, South East to Easterly winds. I don't normally do too well with the wind from any easterly direction but I still thought it would be nice to have a session in the Meander any way.

Personal Best Brown on the Meander

     With a Nth Easterly wind this morning I wasn't even thinking of going fishing today until around 1.00pm when it died off. It was cloudy and now even a little humid and so it was on with the fishing clothes and off to the Meander River. Once there the sun had broken through, but there was also a reasonable amount of cloud around as well still making it pretty good for a spin session. The river was medium to low in height and running clear making me stick with the small Mepps black bladed Black Fury. 

Meander River report 29-8-13

Thought I would head off to the Meander River and a nearby creek this morning to see how high they were running in the hope of may be having a wade for a change. I have enjoyed several stints of bait fishing, but deep down now where near as good as being in a river chasing trout.

SMALL REWARD FOR A LOT OF HARD WORK  4/2/2013

 

Another 3 hours were spent on the Meander River this afternoon fishing in sunshine and a north easterly for most of it, not my favourite type of condition to fish in. Still there were several areas that had shade on it thanks to the many Eucalypts along the river and this was where the fish were holding. The river seemed a little higher today which was a good sign, because the last trip here it was way too low. Hydro must be releasing more water for irrigation purposes and I was hoping this may give the river a much needed lift for fishing.

Tough stretch of Meander River, but a few browns 29/1/2013

I fished on of the toughest stretches of the Meander River this afternoon from 2.45pm to 6.15pm in mainly overcast conditions and low, clear water. This stretch of river that I fished is around 1.5 kms in length and always gives up a few fish, but it's tough going and you earn every fish that one catches. It's full of every size rock and boulder that can trip you up at any time if your mind's not on the job. Take time and make sure you have good footing under you before taking the next step forward. It varies from water depth below the knees to waist deep in many sections in fast and slow sections of it and one slip and could be a few bruises or a wet backside. This stretch of river has many fast water areas along it which I love to fish especially at this time of year and it does give up some nice medium browns that usually average around 360 gms.

Meander still gives up a few fish in low water 22/1/2013

Cloud cover this afternoon made for me to head off to the Meander River for a session of spinning the fast water once  more. Arrived around 3.15 PM and once again as soon as I put my waders on, Bingo! Out came the sun again. Not deterred I still hit the river full of confidence and it wasn't too long before I had my first fish on the line and it was a small solid brown of some 240 gms.

Meander River 16/1/2013

I headed off to the Meander River this afternoon for a few hours spin fishing given it was nice and overcast in Sheffield and quite mild. When I arrived at the Meander the clouds started to separate and then the sun broke through and boy it had a bit of bite in it too. I already knew where I was going to fish and it was the fast water sections of the river. Still had the old Mepps Black Aglia on that I have stuck with over many trips now and it worked once again as it was fish on in the third cast into the river.
