Can't wait to see the photos. Every bass fisherman in Australia would like to see a 60cm bass measured.

Winter fish transfers

The opening of the 2018-19 brown trout season is fast approaching.

Great excitement surrounds this season’s opening, and rightly so. Almost 30 000 adult wild brown trout ran into our migratory fish traps since April. Many have been released into Assisted Lake fisheries.

To compliment the brown trout stockings, we stocked over 13 000 triploid rainbow trout into fisheries around the state.

The Brady’s chain of lakes received over 10 000 wild brown trout, mostly from Lake King William. With good facilities and wonderful shore based access, it’s worth giving these lakes some attention early in the season.

Penstock Lagoon was topped up with over 3 000 wild brown trout and 1 000 rainbow trout. The Lagoon and is again expected to fish well right through the season. Remember that the daily bag limit is now two fish with a minimum size of 400 mm and only one fish over 500 mm.

Waters in the Central Highlands receiving some quality wild browns include Lake Crescent, Camerons, Bruisers Lagoons, and the Nineteen Lagoons area. Dee Lagoon received 1 000 triploid rainbows that are sure to give anglers a run for their money.

In the south, Lake Dulverton received over 200 brown trout. Craigbourne Dam was stocked with 1 100 wild browns and 1 000 rainbow trout.

On the east coast, we released quality yingina/Great Lake brown trout. Tooms Lake received 1 000, and Lake Leake, 1 100. These waters also received triploid rainbow trout (Tooms Lake - 1 500 and Lake Leake – 2 100).

In the north the popular Four Springs Lake was topped up with 4 039 wild brown trout and 2 100 rainbows. Blackmans Lagoon and Curries River Reservoir both got 600 browns and 200 rainbows. Brushy Lagoon received over 200 quality wild browns and over 300 large rainbow trout.

We gave a new fishery an injection of life in the states northeast. We put 500 triploid rainbow trout into Briseis Hole at Derby. Not far down the road at Pioneer Lake, we released another 500 excellent rainbow trout.

As well as 500 triploid rainbow trout, into the Pet Reservoir, we released 600 wild, fin clipped, brown trout. Into South Riana Dam we released another 400 wild, fin clipped brown trout. These fish are part of a “mark and recapture” in-lake survey. These surveys will help assess the fisheries performance.

A popular early season water in the north west is Lake Kara. It will again attract attention due to 320 large rainbows (some up to 5kg) we released there during the winter.

We wish you all the best for the 2018-19 trout-fishing season opening on Saturday 4 August.

I have never, ever seen a genuine photo of a 60cm Bass on a measuring mat.  I've seen a few people try to manipulate mats so that the fish looks to be 60cm.  I've also seen people claim to have caught a 60, but didn't have a mat, or a camera handy.  Barry Oxford has caught more Bass than just about any person alive, and he too has never seen a 60cm specimen.  They're called Unicorns for a very good reason.

Hey guys, novice bass fishermen here just want to start a topic about big bass. Pretty much here to find out what's the biggest Australian bass caught and if it's rare to catch bass of 60cm or more. Does anyone have any photos of 60cm+ bass?
I myself have only ever been bass fishing a handful of times as I prefer saltwater fishing/spearing but on those few times I did I was catching bass all the way up to 64cm (mainly 40-55s) and quite consistently too. I'll have to get the photos off my old phone and upload.

Please feel free to post all of your big bass photos, I'd love to see them   :youbeauty

Carp Management Program attends National Carp Control Plan workshop

Last week, Jonah Yick, IFS Leader of the Tasmanian Carp Management Program attended a workshop in Canberra. The workshop was part of a larger project under the National Carp Control Plan (NCCP).

 

At the workshop there were specialists from all over the country including:


researchers of small and large fish,
plant scientists,
waterbird scientists,
amphibian (frogs and toads) researchers, and
bug scientists.


 

The workshop discussed how different levels of carp reduction from mainland waterways might affect the surrounding ecosystem. It also talked about water quality, system modelling, risk analysis, and economics.

Hopefully, the outcome of the workshop will assist the NCCP to:


plan an integrated approach to controlling carp in Australia’s waterways,
understand and manage the risks involved with the removal of carp,
quantify the benefit/cost analysis of the project, and
Inform stakeholder engagement.

News Views & Press Releases / The Tumbledown Creek bridge is closed

The Tumbledown Creek bridge is closed

Tumbledown Creek Bridge next to Arthurs Lake is closed. The bridge allowing access to Little Lake and Gunns Lake. The deteriorating structural condition is causing the closure.

 

This timber bridge was originally built nearly 15 years ago. It provided access to transmission lines. Hydro Tasmania (HT) left the bridge in place to allow recreational users access to Little Lake and Gunns Lake

 

HT advised that it is unlikely the adjacent ford will be crossable until the lake level reduces in the mid-summer months. HT estimate high clearance vehicles can pass through the ford when the Arthurs Lake water level is more than 1.8m below full supply level. However, it is up to individuals to assess whether conditions are appropriate to allow safe fording.

 

You can find up to date information on the lake levels the Hydro Tasmania website.

 

HT thank you for your patience. If you have any question please contact Anna Blake: anna.blake@hydro.com.au.

Anglers Access getting ready for the new season

We have been busy updating Anglers Access Program signs with the new regulations for the 2018-19 season. This means travelling all over the State.

At the same time, we completed maintenance to navigation lights at major boat ramps.

New Anglers Access Program brochures will be available from the IFS Website and tackle shops before the season opens on Saturday 4 August.
