Reel Life April 2022

April brings a whole heap of late season fishing opportunities 

There’s five weeks to hit those rivers before the end of April when they become the natural hatchery for future generations of trout. 

Further south, the salmon season still runs till the end of April and word is this season has been a good one. 

There’s loads of handy fishing spots close to main centres that have plenty of delicious trout and perch swimming around. With fuel prices at the point they are, the ability to harvest a fish or two locally can ease the pain on your wallet whilst giving you some quality time in the outdoors. 

If you are in search of a place to go? or want some tips and tricks, click here for our handy trout fishing made easy page. 

Most of our fisheries can sustain harvest, so next time you are out fishing, take a trout or two for dinner, make the most of this healthy food source and take some pressure off your food bill at the same time.   

If you are wondering what to do with your catch? Check out the Fish & Game Cookbook; it's filled with helpful information and heaps of recipes from game chef Angelo Georgalli so you can experience your fish as never before. So, get ahead of the queue and order your copy here.  

Don't forget your local fisheries when planning what recipe you will try, and remember, you don't have to go far to find quality trout fishing. 

We would like to wish anglers the best for the winter fishing season, and this will be the last Reel Life till September.
