Woods Lake 2/2/2012

I've just received a report from President Mark Tapsell as he was making his way down the mountain from Woods Lake.
Mark told me there was  3092915693451264 duns on the water there today but the fish were only "onceing" and this made for hard fishing.
Never the less he finished up with four and his mate caught two, their condition was excellent with good coloured flesh so they should lend themselves to good eating.
Wind was calm one minute and blowing the next, ...but a great day had all the same.
 Thanks for the call Mark, cheers, President Todd

Woods Lake Ramp Closure

The Woods Lake Road will be closed 14 - 18 November between 7.30am and 4.30pm each day.
The Woods Lake boat ramp will also be closed completely inclusive of those dates.
A rock groyne is being built 30 metres long with a 10 metres dogleg at the end to protect the ramp from the south and westerly winds that make launching and retrieval so difficult.
Please be tolerant during this time. This project is funded by Marine and Safety Tasmania.

Woods Lake Report from Dec 29 2010

Trev and i had the morning on Woods lake today, very nice and calm but cold early.
We got four almost as soon as we arrived and lost a few. The fish caught were on blue oyster , salt n pepper &  jollytail... we were getting plenty of hits but they were lazy hits , the weather soon changed.....  "very strong winds" so that was enough for us.

Woods Lake Report from Sat 27th November

Fished Woods Lake on Saturday morning. On water about 7:30am with slight northerly so headed to southern end of lake. We up 5 nice fish on soft plastics close to shore but no surface feeders seen. About 10am went over to eastern shore where there were alot of mayflys hatching. Over next 2 hours caught and released so many fish using a highland dun pattern close into the shore. Headed back to boat ramp about midday and while cleaning fish i paused for about 30 seconds and looked along the bank and saw no fewer than 25 rises in a 50m stretch to the north.
Amazing morning!
