Coastal Catches 22/3/2012

I had a great moment this week when a customer came into the shop and told us about how he had taken his grandson out fly fishing at the upper Inglis river. His grandson had been practicing his casting and has become reasonably proficient. They were standing at a pool and grandfather asked grandson where he thought the biggest trout would be sitting, grandson points out the spot and puts a dry fly over the spot which is promptly engulfed by a 2lb trout which was duly landed. I think proud grandfather got a bigger kick out of this fish than grandson and it goes to show what a fantastic sport fishing is for families spending quality time together.

The long weekend turned out to be a ripper with many anglers taking full advantage of the good weather. There were a lot of people up in the Highlands and I am told that the saltwater was very popular as well.
Arthurs Lake is starting to fish really well. The fish are in superb condition and if you want a few fish to take home for the table you won’t find any better.

Water levels are very high in Arthurs Lake and Great Lake and as a result there is a fair bit of debris floating in the water. Care needs to be taken when you are out on a boat because some of them are very hard to see so it would be good practice to slow down a little.

There are an ever increasing number of sea runners and resident fish being caught in estuaries along the coast. Bait numbers are building up and there are fish feeding on the bait. You can try any water flowing into the sea from small creeks to large rivers. If you look closely enough for long enough you will generally be able to see signs of Trout.

The rumour that I mentioned last week turned out to be true and if you checked the IFS website on Friday you would have seen that Lake Barrington and Brushy Lagoon were stocked with 1000 3kg Rainbow Trout in each water. There are plenty still happily swimming around waiting to be caught so it is well worth the effort to head out and try to catch one.
