Fly fishing Tasmania – Hatch chart Sept 20 2013
Brumbys Creek – Levels are up and down, but the trout are starting to move. Weed growth has developed over winter, which is great for this season. Stoneflies have started to hatch.
Four Springs – Frogs have been spawning for the past fortnight, and damsel nymphs are moving.
Lake Huntsman – Clear, but hard work.
St Patricks – Has been running high and clear, but cold temps have kept the fish down.
North and South Esk – Flooding. A few black spinner duns were found on the lower South Esk mid-week.
Macquarie – Very quite, but mayfly will only be a fortnight away at most.
Mersey – flooded
Meander – flooded
Lake Leake – Consistent catches of fish in the 1-2lb range.
Arthurs Lake – Very high, but quite clear. Frogs are a fortnight away from hitting the water.
Little Pine – A bit high for good tailing, but still lots of tails to be found.
Little Lake and Gunns – Very slow fishing. Still a few cormorants around.
Bronte – Been challenging due to very high levels. The best tailing shores are two-foot deep.
Derwent – Started to sight-fish well during the week, but is expected to flood again.
