Trout fishing - as the season winds down most Tasmanian trout waters are closed to angling from the end of April, but there are a few which can be fished throughout May. Greg French explains what each has to offer:

Fishing in the city

I spotted a small fish rising to a hatch of snowflake caddis in the far side of the pool. My cast was only average but it did not take long for the fish's little eyes to light up and gobble down my caddis imitation. After a quick but lively fight I'd released my fourth trout for the evening.

Where was I? I was only ten minutes from the city of Launceston, in the middle of the Cataract Gorge, just down from the First Basin.
