Woods Lake continues to reward trout anglers.
With highland gum beetles about again, those trying green wet flies there have been pleased.
So was the fly fisher who recently caught a whopper brown trout of 3.75 kilograms.
An angler specialising in trolling deep succeeded again on Woods.
He and a friend took home their healthy bags of nice trout after finding bright green and gold lures effective as usual.
Then trout in nearby Penstock Lagoon are coming now at mayfly duns and spinners.
Four kilometres north from Bronte Park, Pine Tier Lagoon is at a low level but is sheltered from current unrelenting winds.
Most of the trout to be found there are small but plentiful.
Lake Fergus is another interesting water not far north west of Little Pine Lagoon and of similar size.
Many of its brownies average a kilogram, are in good nick and are chasing frogs, mayfly nymphs, mudeyes or dragonfly nymphs, and shrimps or scud.
In saltwater, most of the East Coast stock rebuilding zone opens as scheduled for recreational rock lobster fishing this Saturday, December 7.
However, remaining closed until advised will be the Storm Bay/Bruny Zone, where samples exceeded the maximum for safe human consumption.
Updates will be posted on the DPIPWE Biotoxin Events webpage.
Then the director of public health has warned against eating shellfish from the Tamar and Derwent estuaries.
