Western Lakes fly fishing Tasmania

January 20, 2020

A Western Lakes fly-fishing experience in Tasmania is a fishing experience that is hard to beat anywhere in the world...

Western Lakes fly fishing Tasmania

There's wading one of over 3000 shallow lagoons, sighting large golden trout cruising the flats, searching for recently hatched mayfly. At this time of year, a single dun or spinner pattern presented well does the trick for these wary trout. To fully experience Tasmania’s Western Lakes, we recommend one of our 3-day, 2-night packages.

Another fantastic fly fishing region in this area is the 19 Lagoons, which is much more accessible by vehicle. This area of small lakes, lagoons and tarns can be reached by turning off the Highland Lakes Road at Liawenee and following the Lake Augusta Road for approximately 13 kilometers, where you will drive directly onto a number of shallow lakes which can mostly be waded whilst poloroiding trout cruising around the flats. This can be some of the most rewarding Western Lakes fly fishing on offer.

We regularly travel to the 19 Lagoons area on tours with Trout Tales, contact us today and experience it for yourself.
