    Only 5 days to go till opening weekend !!!!

    Well another trout season is nearly apon us - You'll be able to leave the tying bench and load the vest ! The weather has jumped straight into spring to boot.

    Matt went up to Tantangarra during the week and had fish jumping for dragon flies in September ! They also managed a few fish on midge through the day. Tantangarra has fished well on the fly over the last month, and is still up on good ground - although dropping slowly at the mement.

    Eucumbene and Jindabyne are both rising fairly quickly, and will be up over good ground shortly. You want to fish in the shallower area's where it's warming first, and there's more insect activity. We have seen some fantastic fish coming in from the troller's and baitfisherman ( Weighed a beautiful 10lb brown yesterday from Jindabyne taken trolling off East Jindabyne in the middle of the day!)So the fish are active and in the margins - If you don't see any movement try using an intermediate or sinking line with yabby paterns like wooly buggers. Fishing around the rocks and clay beds.

    The rivers have all had a good flush through winter, with the Monaro looking greener than it has in years. The Mac has been in flood three times since July ! This warm weather may get a few duns happening as well.The Eucumbene and Thredbo rivers are running hard and still have quite a few rainbows hanging back after spawning, and should provide some good fast water nymphing.

    All in all things are looking good for the opening - so call in for a cuppa on your way through !

    Brett: Nice chat forum the boys have put together here. Its so good to see so many ways for the angling community to communicate now days.It will dramatically accelerate ground breaking news and lobby effort in the interest of angling.

    We would enjoy having you down some time - even get out for a fish. This weekend should be great , Steve and Bushy are always good company.

    There's no good skinny fisherman either

    Regards Scotto

    Fitzy: I also believe the altitude locally has an effect - I always feel thinner on the coast

    I've been using that one for so long now - I'd better stick with it. It's actually shorts and T-Shirt weather down here at the moment - Roll on summer 8)

    Scotto long time no speak,this will be the first opening l've missed in a long long time and l'm almost sad, the only thing that is keeping my mind off my beloved trout are the tarpon,flatties,trevs and the odd jack

    Good fishing
    Travis

    PS say hello to Matt for me thanks

    Scotto!!

    Scott0,

    I go a way, and I find you lurking around here.

    Only 13 sleeps till Weipa. I got all my flights sorted out no thanks to Flightwest/Ansett/Air NZ.

    You'll melt when you get up to the Cape. Did the Camberra mod get into some permit on the Eclipse??

    I better get tying the crab flies!!!

    Wes: The boys from Canberra caught 5 permit between 13 and 18 lb's - and lost a few more. There where apparently heaps along the beaches - and some really big ones up to approx 30lb's !

    They also caught a 28lb milkfish fishing with Fish out from Weipa after the trip - It's a hooter !

    Glad to hear you've sorted out your flights as well - we're also organised for our Archer trip in November . I can't wait either 8)

    Re: Only 5 days to go till opening weekend !!!!

    Scotto..sounds like those boys had a great time....then agian who doesn't when they are fish up off the cape...
    A heap of permit and a bloody 28lb milky what a fish!!!!
    Now that thing would haul...
    Some of the guys up in Cairns have been hooking up on the smaller model milkys and are having a ball..Just got to find the time myself to get out for a look..
    At times they congragate up of the flats up here, more than likely they feed of the algea growth that happens in the shallows as the water warms up.....

    Wes.....sounds like you are going to have a ball....worst thing about those trips is the coming home....Take care mate..

    Cheers Steve Ooi.....
