It opened at midnight on friday night. We are currently looking after grand kids while there Mum is in hospital so i was a bit house bound. Sat arvo i done a short trip right in town behind the dog track, murky water and cloud cover dont help with sight fishing. I did cover a few carp, but as usual the townies are to smart for me. Sunday after lunch I drove up to the Campbells river below Chifley dam, a minor tail race i can guess. I landed my first trout on fly here in the mid 70s, and also my first take on a dry fly( i mistimed the strike lol) Damm carp everywhere and not a sign of a trout . Re rigged my leader to have 12lb tippet and attacked the carp. Ended up with 5 in a few hours, they all fought very strongly. Sadly i hooked a real horse in a run, he ate the fly, I lifted, came up tight, then the hooked pulled buggar, easily 15lb(most likely closed to 40lb lol) Monday i got a way a bit earlier and drove about 40ks to a normally delightful stream called the Winburdale riverlet. Get there its not flowing, and putrid, the gully rakers last summer have washed lots of mud etc in to the river, and no big flows to flush it out. walked about a k upstream , and decided it was hopeless. So back tracked and drove back up the bridle track and drove to spot on the Macquarie river about 20ks below Bathurst. The river was low but quite clear. First carp I covered tasted it and spat it. I ground the fly into the mud and covered another one and he ate. good solid fish 8lb , high 60s. There where carp working there way up runs with there backs out of the water, never mind poloroiding, just look for a big back. Anyway ended up landing 14, not bad for about 4 hours fishing. All where from 4 to 8lb. tight lines guys.
