Preparation for the 2022-23 season

The 2022-23 trout fishing season in Tasmania offers at least three great opportunities.

Firstly, it looks like being the first season for a couple of years where interstate visitors can plan a Tasmanian trout fishing holiday with little likelihood of COVID mucking them up.

Secondly, it is also looking like the first season in a couple of years in which we’ll start to welcome international visitors to our waters again.

Thirdly, and far more importantly, as I write this I’m watching weather patterns unfold that are putting plenty of water into our lakes and, thankfully, into our spawning streams.

After fantastic rains in October 22 the majority of Tasmania has experienced a very dry spell – the La Ninja effect just hasn’t extended this far south. And this has seen lake levels fall significantly and fairly low flows in those streams that we rely on for our trout to spawn. But May has seen good rainfalls and there’s still plenty to come, so all looks good both for the spawn and for the coming season.

And so we encourage you to check out the range of TGALT guides, private fisheries and lodges and to get in touch to start making plans for your next visit to Tasmania. And remember, this is not just an invitation to experienced anglers – fly fishing is a recreation that many are discovering for the first time, and Tasmania offers great opportunities for the novice fly fisher.
