Trout tips - from tackle shops

Presented from Issue 105, August 2013

We did a bit of a runaround Tasmania’s tackle stores to see what their tips for the first month or so of the tackle season were. We asked what the top three places to fish were, plus lures, flies, baits and a few other things.

Lake Gordon Boat Launching Site Options 21-12-2011

The boat launching area at Boat Ramp Road, Lake Gordon is now usable due to improved water levels and should provide anglers with a good alternative to the facility near Gordon Dam this summer.

Alternative boat ramp at Boat Ramp Road, Lake Gordon, off Strathgordon Road
A recent inspection of the boat launching area at Boat Ramp Road, Lake Gordon revealed that due to the improved water levels at the lake, this launch­ing area is once again a viable option for anglers. Assuming the level is main­tained, it should provide a good alternative to the facility near Gordon Dam this summer.

Boat Ramp Rd is off Strathgordon Road, 9 km West of the Scotts Peak turnoff. About 3 KM of good gravel track takes you down to a serviceable launching area within State Forest, meaning that a National Park pass is not required. Launching here saves driving a further 30 km to the Gordon Dam ramp and gives anglers access to the Ragged Basin area of the lake. Both brown and rain­bow trout are available in Lake Gordon, although brown trout dominate.

A copy of the Lake Pedder and Lake Gordon Anglers Access brochure, includ­ing map is available from this link.
