Platypus tops off an average day..
« on: September 25, 2021, 01:01:38 pm »
The Meander River water level had dropped to a safer wading level, so that's where I headed. Even though it was higher than I would have liked I knew an area I could wade as long as I took it easy. Not the session I wanted but still managed a few hits from the trout. The water temperature is still very low and the flow was on the fast side, the fishing will improve as the water level drops to the 60 cm mark. It still nice to finally get into one of the larger river for a change of scenery.. Thanks for watching..

cheers

Thanks Adrian - great scenery, but an unusually slow day for you, fish-wise. 
Always good to see the platypus around the place: though many people reckon they're a bit scarce, especially on the mainland now, those of us who spend time in the smaller rivers know better, don't we?

Thanks Paul, always makes my day when I see a platypus in the rivers/streams, it was and has been quiet on several spin sessions so far this season..
The trout have been few and far between and when they have had a go at the spinner they haven't been all that aggressive.
The high water levels & cold water temps haven't helped either, it will soon turn around once they drop and water temps rise..

cheers
Adrian
