Derwent River

President Reg Travers sent me this photo today.
He fished the Derwent River this morning and landed four fish similar to this one, all around the four pound mark.
Lure of choice was Dale's Yep Hardbodys.
Well done mate,

Good news for River Derwent Anglers

Anglers and boaters alike will be pleased with recent improvements to the popular Prince of Wales Boat Ramp off Gepp Parade. Jointly funded by MAST and the Glenorchy City Council the works included resurfacing and upgrading the ramp to the recommended gradient of 1:8 which will allow for all tide use. Users will also enjoy the addition of a pontoon system which will significantly aid launching and retrieving of vessels, not to mention the boarding of passengers etc.

Tasmania's Top Ten Fishing Spots

All articles by Mike Stevens
Tasmania is surrounded by water and has some spectacular marine fishing from bays, river and estuary systems to game fishing for yellowfin tuna, albacore, striped marlin and southern bluefin tuna.
Southern bluefin tuna are one of the most keenly sought game fish and several world records for these are held in Tasmania.
In fresh water Tasmania has a world class trout fishery. The Central Highlands boasts over 3000 lakes and tarns, most of which hold trout. Many of these are only accessible by foot, but the journey can be a reward in itself as the walk can be spectacular. Rivers are also highly regarded and many have reasonable flows all year.
