Northern trout anglers can visit many productive fisheries.
Some sizeable trout came recently from Camden Dam and were caught by an angler twitching a wet fly.
For fans of Talbots Lagoon in the North West, this prime trout water has previously offered good fishing between October and March.
Lake Rowallan could also be rewarding.
Although its water level has been falling of late, it rose sharply last October and remains high.
It could well be worth checking, by boat or road, places where little creeks feed into its many small, rocky gullies like those along the western shore, now filled and often attracting trout.
Recent white water in the Cataract Gorge indicates high flows from Great Lake boosting levels at Brumbys Creek, lower stretches of the Macquarie and South Esk Rivers - and trout appetites.
With the duck season opening soon, considerate anglers will steer clear of hides, especially early in the day.
In the brine, kingfish are being caught at the mouth of the Tamar estuary - out in line with the Low Head lighthouse to begin with, but recently as far upstream as Garden island, near Clarence Point.
Meanwhile, one boater on the Scamander River, upstream from where the river leaves the Upper Scamander Road, has done well by ignoring the cocky salmon to draw some nice bream to his soft plastic lures.
