Huntsman Lake Report 23/6/2012

Here's a report on a couple of hours at the Huntsman on Saturday afternoon. You could say it was a bit cool, but that's fishing for this time of year.
Arrived out there 3.30 fished till dark (5.30) landed 6 browns, keeping 3 for in-laws and released the rest.

Huntsmans Lake Report 21/4/2012

Today Trev, my dad, (Geoff ) and I had a very hard afternoon fishing at Huntsman Lake.
When we arrived it was bright and sunny, not a ripple on the water.
As previously stated, we worked very hard for two  (and 3 others on and lost).
A nice big black cloud along with a breeze came and i thought this would improve things,... but that was it.
Not another touch all afternoon.

Huntsmans Lake 18/2/2012

Trev and I spent the afternoon on Saturday fishing Huntsman Lake. We arrived at  12.30 to a perfect overcast day with high expectations that some fish would be rising, after a slow cruise around the lake, not one fish was spotted, so it was away with the fly rods and out with the hard lures.
We started drifting along the western shore of a very low lake, 3rd cast and there was a small fish of about 3/4 of a pound in the boat From then on until “go home time” at 7.00pm it was one hit after another with 19 fish boated for the day, we were getting hit’s every 5 or six casts.

Lake River and Huntsmans Lake Report

Fished the Lake River on Monday 22nd November and with river levels still high there were not many fish showing. Caught a few and saw a few, but they were reluctant fish. With all rivers still high and with good flows the season will improve. Most rivers will have received another rise in level as rain over the weekend of 27/28 November gives them a boost.
Fished Huntsman Lake on Saturday morning 27 November in very calm conditions. There were plenty of fish right on the shallow shores. Some were even in behind the sticks and virtually impossible to present a fly to. Broke three off whilst attempting the impossible and landed one of less than a kilo. On the way back to the ramp there were quite a few fish taking midges in the middle of the flat calm. Got the fly in front of a few, but no takes. I heard after the Saturday night rain it was spilling again.
