Summer sight fishing is in full swing! Damsel feeders and early hoppers are driving good sight fishing on the rivers and streams, with excellent river heights currently. The wilderness lakes are also fishing well, with some extremelly large (healthy) fish coming to hand this season. We’ve been using the 1864 Blue Damsel and Scruffy flies as our go-to patterns, backed up by a 1864 Black and Peacock sightfished as a single nymph to the more fussy trout.
Fisheries to watch: St Pats, Meander, Brumbys Creek and Western Lakes. Hatches to consider: Black spinner mayfly, hoppers, damsels
