With three years of La Nina and other climatic factors, Australia has been swept with intense flooding across the eastern seaboard, extending right down into Tasmania. This has affected many of our waterways, including dramatic flood events on our northern and lowland river systems.
Pictured here is the access to the central plateau via Poatina. Following a landslide, this shows the road after some clearing work and will take some time to be fully repaired.
Fortunately we still have other access points to the central plateau, and on the upside many of these waters are reaching new high ground water levels, which is great for the trout fishing and the condition of the fish in the highland lakes as the season progresses and the mayfly hatches are about to start.
Our lowland lakes are performing very well and fishing will peak into November and pre-Christmas/new year period. Mayfly hatches and fish quality are very good to outstanding.
Despite the wet conditions, there is still great trout fishing adventures to be had.
