Four Springs – a trophy trout lake
Four Springs is a low altitude lake, in the northern midlands of Tasmania. It’s a purpose built fishery, with a lot of shallow areas as well as deep water. It has excellent weed growth and over the decade as it has evolved, the diversity in insect life has become rather dramatic.
We enjoy fishing Four Springs early and late season.
Spring is a magic time of year on Four Springs. On the best days, which I would have to say are overcast, warm, and drizzly, the hatches can be phenomenal and when they are this is often accompanied by both brown and rainbow trout feeding in frenzy on the surface.
When the weather is atrocious in the highlands Four Springs is a great fall back.
The changing light on Four Springs creates great trout fishing conditions
The Inland Fisheries Service also provides useful information about many Tasmanian trout waters, including access points, anglers notes, and maps. Brochures are available at most fishing stores, visitor centres, or online. See the Anglers Access for Four Springs.
