TroutFest is over for another year and the fishing season at Milani has begun well with good fish caught in Laura Creek despite the earlier drought.
Trout caught over the opening weekend ranged from 30cm to 45cms. It was lovely to hear the stories after so much worry that there may not be fish around but they have obviously survived the dry.
This year's trout stocking fry should be ready for the next season as conditions are perfect for growing this year with the return of our stormy weather keeping the stream in good order.
Wal and Lynne are your hosts and have been welcoming guests to Milani for over 30 years. They both love the bush. Wal likes to try his hand at fly fishing and photography while Lynne enjoys being a birdo , wildflower spotting, art and gardening.
