Four Springs Easter 2011

by Rose and Vic. I hope everyone has had a great Easter. We are busy getting ready for Agfest so not much fishing, almost withdrawal symptoms.
So yesterday we went to Four Springs it had a little chop on the water and was overcast. Victor chucked the plastics around and managed to get a couple of nice browns.  I of course fly fished and caught a beautiful rainbow, fat and lush.

Four Springs April 1st 2011

As this trout season rapidly draws to a close for us, Johnny Dekkers and myself decided to have what could well be described as  a “final fling” with the fly rods at Four Springs this morning.

Four Springs Christens the New Boat

A 4lb Rainbow Trout caught by our Grand Daughter Jemma at Four Springs Lake near Westbury on Monday. Jemma christened the new boat at Four Springs today...couldn't get the grin off her face all day. Black and Gold Hawk Chunk was the lure of choice again.

Four Springs Report March 12th 2011 

Presidents Jim and Virginia McKenna gave us a ring this morning inviting my son (Jacob) and I to Four Springs this afternoon for a couple of hours using soft plastics.
We arrived around 3 o’clock just as some anglers were getting off the water, they told us that the rainbows had been on top for most of the day and had three each to show for their efforts.. These were caught on caught on both fly and plastics.

Four Springs Kayak Report

Have attached some pics Friday afternoons kayak session with a mate at Four Springs.
Tried the trusty old black/gold t tail and also the powerbait 3" minnow in pearl olive for the first hour or so with no luck. Thought I might give the gold/black Hawk Chunk a run and whoompa....healthy 4lb rainbow to open the account;

Four Springs Report Friday 5th November

I was going to go to Lake Leake this morning but the lure of a sleep in,( on top of listening to recent President reports re /Four Springs fly fishing), had me change my mind.
So with that, I picked up fellow President John Dekkers at 9.30am and we were on our way.
We hadn't been on the water for very long when we noticed a couple of swirls near the boat, a quick cast in that direction saw my indicator fly sink, I struck ...and all hell broke loose!!!.

Four Springs report 18th April 2010

Eddy and I went out this Sunday 18 April to Four Springs and it was well worth the trip.

Left home around 0620am and ran into thick fog from Esk Farm to the lake. On the water a little after 700am with low visibility due thick fog, which hung around until 1000am. It was calm, mild on the water and nothing rising. We cruised around for about 1 hour before we had a strike. Selwyn had a nice hefty rainbow on; after a few minutes it was in the net. A Tassie Devil 47 was the taker. Continued on and Sel soon had another one on; this time a brownie in top condition on a black and gold 4x with red spots.

Fishing Four Springs Lake

Todd Lambert
Early season
The new season is on us and with it comes the anticipation of another year's fishing. Will it be as good as last year - or maybe better?

Four Springs Lake

Joe Riley
The suns first rays are pushing through the tops of the gum trees and the water has a cold platinum sheen. Ducks paddle around feeding on midge in the water surface and  the odd Bennets wallaby makes it's way back to the tree line after feeding along the grassy shores over night. Twenty metres along the bank appears the tell tale sings of a fish, no trifling tail tip or slight dimple but the bulging of a big brown  as he pushes through the weed to grab a damsel nymph.

Four Springs Lake

There is no doubt Tasmania hosts the best fly-fishing in Australia, our Central Highlands Lakes are world renowned. For those who live in the North of the State there is another piece of water which gives the opportunity of a trophy size brown or rainbow trout, Four Springs Lake.
Situated 16 kilometres North of Hagley via Selbourne Rd (C735), Four Springs holds both brown and rainbow trout that regularly exceed 6 pounds in weight.
