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.
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.

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.
