Tasmania’s wild brown trout season will open on the 4th August 2012 and run through till the 28th April 2013. These waters, including the rivers and streams form the bulk of our trout fishing with the rainbow waters opening on the 29th Sept 2012 and closing 2nd June 2013.
We had good early winter rains that should have given the spawning fish excellent conditions and currently expecting a decent highland snow fall over this weekend to maintain water levels well into the start of the season. Very little reports of flooding, but good flows should persist well into the first half of the season.
If the milder weather predictions hold up for the early spring we can look forward to some great dry fly / mayfly hatches by early Oct and could even have the odd risers by late Sept.
