Re: Opening Day


I think they have it right closing upper reaches of the main rivers and all of the smaller ones. No reason to close the lower reaches no spawning activity there if anything the trout retreat to the lower lagoon area once food gets scarce. But having done a few reckies without a rod on some of the smaller rivers I could see why they are closed (groups of big fish that are not as wary as usual could seriously damage a fishery if some w**ker got to them).
