I wasn’t wrong when I said last month that the trout season was going to be a cracker, with reports coming in thick and fast and punters taking advantage of the sheer numbers that are up and about and on the chew.
It’s quite interesting that some of the fish that have been caught appear to have already spawned and are back trying to get some condition on already, while other fish are still pre-spawn.
This happens down this way and the actual closed season might be a little late for our fish, but let’s face it, it’s been a very strange past 18 months or so with the weather.
It’s great to see the trout going off like they are. A lot of anglers were concerned that there hadn’t been enough stocking of trout, as the natives were seemingly taking priority, which is the way it should be in my opinion.
