Early December 2008 my son arrived back in Australia fresh from a pretty hectic time in Afghanistan with the 4 RAR commandos. He called me and said "dad I want to go back to Tassie fishing'. It had been over four years since we had been fishing together and over three years since I left Tasmania to live on the Gold Coast in Qeensland.
Received a call from ******** as he headed home from Woods Lake Saturday 12 Sept. Road very rough, but fishing today was exceptional. Party finished with four with others hooked and lost but saw some magnificent fish at the boat ramp and no one seemed to come off the water empty handed. Didn't matter what you put at them, they took it, he said. The fish are in good condition.
Woods Lake continues to be one of the most exciting trout fisheries in Tasmania. Catch rates are high with many anglers taking limit bags of five fish. It should be noted regulations are quite specific to Woods Lake. A 5 fish bag limit applies for Woods Lake, with a minimum length of 300 mm and only two fish exceeding 600 mm.

During the trout off-season I tend to spend a bit of time chasing bream, to continue getting a fishing fix, and spend time tying flies and dreaming about the trout season to come. It’s a time to spend doing tackle maintenance, stocking up on lures and dreaming up new challenges and goals for the trout season ahead. When the new season comes around I usually spend the first few months targeting sea runners. Sea run trout are simply brown trout that spend much of there lives out to sea and come in to the estuaries for spawning and to feed on whitebait and the other small endemic fishes that spawn in late winter through spring. Mixed in with the silvery sea runners you can also expect to catch resident fish that have the typical dark colours of a normal brown trout as well as atlantic salmon in some of our estuaries that are located near salmon farm pens. Living in Hobart it is quick and easy to do a trip on the Huon or Derwent and is a more comfortable proposition compared to a trip up to the highlands with snow and freezing winds to contend with.Read more ...
