Thread: The River Bush

  1. #11

    DCAL had one chance to get this right and they blew it. Fish will be killed on the bush this year. Since the nets are seemingly off this year, it'll be the anglers targeted next year for killing fish when the runs are still dire.

    was up for a drive on Tuesday and the river was at a nice height but stinking brown..

    On a related note - there appears to be no public information on whether we're required to use single barbless or not..

    Cheers. I can't believe they charge for the leap at this time of year. I don't think I've ever caught a fish in it before the north west.

    Well done.

    I had one other tug...but seen no fish.

    One thing that struck me as the fish swam away, is that a few hundred metres up the river the fish, which was a ranched fish, would be nutted at the salmon station. Truly bizzarre situation.

    So while our minister says no-one is killing salmon this year. That's not true. Her own department is, and for no apparent reason.
