The whitebait season on some rivers is now open until November 11, added attractions for anglers being the sea-run trout also after them.
Licences cost $33 and northern rivers open are the Black, Brid, Don, Henty, Inglis, Little Forester, Pieman, Forth, Leven and Tamar.
Also open are the Duck and Rubicon Rivers, except for 50m above or below weirs.
The East Coast spawning squid area closes from October 15 to November 14 inclusive, from Lemon Rock south of Wineglass Bay to northern Marion Bay Beach.
Inland, rainbow trout fisheries are now open and Sunday, October 10 is national Gone Fishing Day when licences to fish inland won't be needed.
Statewide junior events include angling 10am to 3pm, supervised by Longford Fishing Club, Elphinstone Road, Cressy. Contact Nigel Clarke 0438 006 499.
Then the Great Lake Tie-In demonstrating fly tying is on Saturday October 16 in the Miena Community Centre, 10am to 3pm for gold coin donations.
Meanwhile, for flyfishers looking for action on inland streams the flies most likely to raise local trout are red spinners.
These are expected to appear hovering over slower northern rivers when maximum air temperatures consistently reach 20C and water warms.
Rain last week boosted trout appetites and levels of north east and East Coast rivers, along with Lake Leake, the Elizabeth and upper South Esk, including its Break'O Day and St Pauls tributaries.
