Heres the largest river brown trout I have taken since moving to Tassie 5 years ago, this fish came from the styx river, taken on my go-to lure, red and black celta.

Lake Skinner - about 1 hr south of Hobart and a couople of hours hike-in. Rainbow trout fishery. We chose one of the few fine weather days in the year to go there.
This was taken a couple of years ago. Only 2 fish between three of us on this day.

@jimmy34 . . .

Some magnificent photos there and the wilderness hiking stuff is just my cup of tea . . . and sometimes the water looks like tea. thumbsupsmilie

Always worth the effort when walking into those sort of areas. Thanks for showing and nice fish

looks like magic water! do they put a lot of effort into stocking the place?

have you fished it from a boat, canoe or kayak?
Rupe.

Nothing makes a fish bigger than almost being caught...

Jimmy,
Great fish mate, beautiful clear water, wish our polluted harbour was as nice, but Styx is a worry, Isn't that the one you cross when you die. lol

Rupe, a boat, canoe or kayak would need a helicopter drop off up there, very challenging terrain just on foot with a backpack (very steep walk up there), perhaps a float tube is a more likely scenario. IApparently the rainbow population is self sustaining but this small lake has benefited from some historical stockings. We were lure and fly fishing. Better fishing up there on more unsettled days, fish are less spooky. Hav plenty more pics from around the state, will have to select some more and do a bulk resize then upload, seems a hassle to me but will find an easier way.

Off to Qld this Wed to Gold Coast, meeting a mate at Tweed Heads and heading up to 1770 / Agnes waters for a week fishing, then 4 days in Sydney with family, hopefully wet a line there somewhere too.

More tassie fishin pics to come in due course. I can actually contribute to this thread, since my lure collection isn't quite as impressive as most here.

James
