Want to know more about Tasmania’s trout fishery?
Western Lakes World Heritage. The unique environment of the Western Lakes World Heritage area is filled with pristine waterways scattered amongst a temperate environment.
Central Highlands Lakes. The Central Highland plateau features a myriad of glacial tarns, filtering into substantial water bodies, and eventually down into major hydro impoundments.
Low and mid altitude lakes. Such as Four Springs, Huntsman, Lake Leake, and others are our choice when the highland lakes are under effect from severe weather conditions, offering much greater protection and warmer temperatures. Mayfly hatches occurring from September onwards.
Rivers. Tasmania’s rivers stand out too with delightful small streams such as St Patrick’s River, Liffey River, Lake River, parts of the North and South Esk Rivers; mayfly hatches on meadow streams such as the Macquarie River, South Esk; cool clear tail race waters such as Brumbys Creek.
Tasmania’s trout waters are diverse; many have sandy bottoms, rich weed beds, rocky shorelines. Vegetation varying from alpine scrub to dense forested areas to farmlands.
