Sail-World.com : Time for trout
Time for trout


'Trevallyn, where the fresh water from the Hydro system enters the salt.'    Carl Hyland    Click Here to view large photo

With an awful lot of fresh water being dumped throughout the state, it’s just the ticket required to get all things trouty firing, especially in salt water. White bait are already starting to move up into estuaries and whilst not in great numbers, they can only build as weather and water warm.

Of course, right on the heels of whitebait and other baitfish are the sea run trout, trout that enter estuaries each year to either spawn or put on great weight gain. We have resident fish in estuaries, but these tend to be darker coloured not like the big silver creatures that visit. Nearly every water way that runs to the sea will have trout come to visit and some of the major estuaries such as the Authur River, The Henty, Derwent and Tamar are well worth a visit with either fly rod or imitations in hand.

Big sea run trout usually visit Tassie during the spring but this year, seem to have arrived early. Many methods can catch you big fish, but I have found that bait fishing for these wily fish is second to none. I recommend the use of fish strips as bait, strips such as Australian salmon or yellow eyed mullet, but you can only use these in areas where baits are permitted. At Trevallyn for instance, you may fish with fish bait but you need an Inland License to take trout from these estuarine waters.

When the season opens, the South Esk and areas such as Hoblers Bridge and Henty St Bridge are great locations for bait fishing, especially of a night. I don’t know why, but night time angling for these fish seems to be more rewarding and the results a lot better.

Fish strips pinned with a single 3/0 hook (circles are good) will often bring big blistering runs and if eels strips are used, bigger fish seem to be landed.

Lures to try are silver duchess, or on a black night, Hueys Fishcakes, particularly the black/red dots.

A friend of mine has been having success with his newly made soft plastic flies where he uses technology imported from overseas to get the hardness in his flies. I reckon in the next few weeks, we shall see some larger fish come undone when some of these are swum in front of their noses.

Fish up to 8kg from Trevally are not uncommon and I have heard of bigger fish being taken from the Authur and Henty River systems, so when down this way, bring an outfit-2-4kg and you should be set.

I will try to bring you some more updates on sea run activity as we progress through the year, in particular when I report on what’s biting where in the state!
