Trout anglers are finding northern lakes and dams productive.
Weighty brown and rainbow trout are grabbing lures at popular Curries River Dam.
Some brownies are probably from 2015 wild adults transferred from Great Lake this year while rainbows have apparently been residents for longer.
Trout tucker has included snails, dragonfly nymphs and occasionally midges.
Then as Lake Leake water warms through spring, the Inland Fisheries Service expects brownies will move into shallows and reward anglers using lures around structures.
Casting while adrift is recommended here, certainly by Rex Meikle who presented a Woolly Bugger fly last week to land one of Lake Leake's three tagged brownies - and $2000.
Then trolling a lure in Craigbourne Dam, Len Howard caught another $2000 brown.
So did David Fraser after casting a spinner into Briseis Mine Hole, these trout being one of two released into each water.
Meanwhile, many anglers in northern brine will be going after squid this month, what with their breeding season coming up in October.
Down East, a boater just south of Schouten Island last Saturday was pleased with his catch which included tasty morwong and flathead.
Recreational Fishing News from DPIPWE advises that grants are available for projects anyone has to provide or improve recreational sea fishing facilities.
Grants are part of a $2 million program to make sea fishing more accessible to Tasmanians.
