Anglers continue to appreciate northern trout waters.
Curries River Dam remains popular, pleasing anglers using all methods with catches of brown and rainbow trout.
Then last Sunday a keen angler, who jagged a rainbow on a wet fly, saw trout rising well out, until a sea breeze arrived mid-afternoon.
Meanwhile, Huntsman Lake proved productive for Ricky Bassett. Trolling a lure there recently, he boated one of its two tagged brownies and $2000.
Then into Craigbourne Dam last Friday went 130 domestic Atlantic salmon averaging 1.2 kilograms.
Lake Leake continues to spill down the Elizabeth River, where a keen flyfisher presenting a wet fly in one of its swollen tributaries among the hills recently took several nice browns.
As spring begins, so does the rainbow trout spawning run at Liawenee, Great Lake.
As they head up the canal there, the Inland Fisheries Service will use its fish trap to monitor rainbow spawners and transfer them into spawning channels to remove their fry from among the more advanced brownies.
As further protection, Canal Bay will remain closed to anglers until Saturday, December 4.
Saltwater anglers are reminded that because squid will be breeding, the season for taking them from along the state's North Coast will close through October.
Down south, an angler fishing off Tasman Island boated tuna and big flathead up to 56 centimetres.
