Beautifully coloured wild brown troutEleven Trout Caught In One Hour & Twenty Minutes 3-2-2016

I had around two hours before the wife came home before I had to take her up to the daughters at Cradle Mountain, so I decided to get in a quick session on a small river 10 minutes from home.. Once there I started flicking the little black fury around in the tannin coloured river and had a hit & miss on the second cast. The next little stretch gave up three nice little river browns with the best one going around 290gms and beautifully conditioned too.

Hi folks, I had one of those last minute moments where the moons had aligned and the boss was kind. I had been given a long weekend!!! So as you do, living on the East Coast, you plan a solo trip to fish a river on the West coast for the ever elusive sea-run trout (the grass is always greener they said). This was the time of year to go as the whitebait season is in full swing and willy weather had told me that the wind was going to be calm in the afternoon of Thursday and in the morning hours of Friday. It was on.

DASHER  RIVER  GIVES  UP  A  FEW  BROWNS 2/4/2014

After the weather finally cleared here in Sheffield today I headed on over to the Dasher River  (at 3.15pm) some ten minutes from home at Claude Road.  After a one kilometer walk through the paddocks I reached my starting point where I would fish my way back upstream to the main road bridge. I was a little surprised to how low the river level was especially after last weeks 57mms of rain here. It was also a very dark tannin colour too, but still looked good enough for a spin. The sky was now clear and there was just a medium South Westerly breeze blowing which was enough to keep those little pesky flies away that hang around the cow paddocks.

GREAT  AFTERNOON  SESSION  ON  THE  DASHER  RIVER 3/4/2014

After a fair afternoon on the Dasher River yesterday I thought it would be worth while to try it once again this afternoon. I have another friendly land owner who lets me fish his property and so I made the decision to try there today. I will have close on  two kilometers of river that I can fish and I'm hoping it will fish a little better than where I fished yesterday. The wind was much stronger and gusty today and this was good as it will put a ripple on the surface which is better than being flat calm. 

Destruction of land and river near Beaulah

Here is something that has really made me angry, and it is the destruction of the large grassed area along side of the Minnow River near Beaulah, plus the destruction of river banks from Off Road vehicles such as bikes, Atv's & 4wd's. These Morons and that's what they are do not give a dam of the damage they cause, not to mention the bottles, cans, car parts and rubbish that they also leave behind. This little river has struggled over the past few years from below average rainfalls to keep it in top condition and now it has to put up with this type of destruction.
