Alpine streams in top nick for small trout
The high altitude alpine streams are
fishing well for small brown trout this
season, thanks mainly to regular
rainfall and mild temperatures.
These diminutive waterways are in
great shape for this time of year and
the little trout that call these creeks and
streams home are at their most active,
feeding on grasshoppers, moths,
March flies and other insects.
Anglers fishing with dry flies and
small lures are catching plenty of fish.
Don t expect any trophy trout -- there
are no whoppers in these narrow,
But the fishing is fun nonetheless
and, depending on how far off the
beaten track you go, you can fish all
day and not see another angler.
The mountain lakes are also worth a
look. The most consistent fishing is
occurring from the shoreline, with
mudeyes the gun bait. Trolling has
been erratic at Eucumbene and
Jindabyne as fish play the game one
day and disappear the next.
On the South Coast, jumbo salmon
are cruising the rock ledges and
beaches. Fat fish up to 3kg are being
reported around Moruya and Broulee
on lures and bait.
Mulloway are prowling the
estuaries with fish reported from St
Georges Basin, Tuross Lake and
Wagonga Inlet. Tuross is also fishing
well for bream on surface lures around
the weed edges.
The marlin run shows no sign of
abating, with most boats managing to
raise a handful of fish per outing.
Dolphinfish are present in large
numbers, although many are just under
the 60cm minimum size limit. The
great news is that there are plenty of
these fish close to shore.
Virtually all of the local lakes are
producing redfin. They re mostly tiny,
but a few fish over 30cm have been
reported from lakes Tuggeranong and
Burley Griffin and Yerrabi Pond.

fish you've just caught send it to

your name, where you caught the
fish, its weight, size and species.

Classes open in 'really beautiful sport'
Rhythmic gymnastics is expanding its
appeal in Canberra with the only club
dedicated to the sport opening up new
classes in the city s north.
Mother of two Celicia McKenzie-
McHarg started Elementz Rhythmic
Gymnastics after she moved to the
ACT region about five years ago.
When I moved here from
Brisbane, the first thing I looked for
was a rhythmic gymnastics club where
I could coach, she said.
There was nothing at all so I
opened my own.
The club has entered its fourth year
and recently exceeded 100 members.
Over that time it has operated out of
Wanniassa but last week they opened
in Belconnen and Gungahlin.
Popular in eastern European
countries, rhythmic gymnastics is an
Olympic sport with five apparatus -
ball, hoop, clubs, ribbon and rope.
McKenzie-McHarg said she loved
everything about it.
It is just a really beautiful sport to
watch, she said. It develops fitness
and flexibility and encourages
beautiful graceful movement to music.
It s creative and offers a bit of
Although she claimed to have
started in the sport late, the former
Queensland resident represented
Australia at a world championships.
Before moving to Canberra she
coached the sport for many years in
Brisbane. Since moving to the ACT
she has developed the skills of many
talented young gymnasts.
We ve had success at a state and
national level with some of our
gymnasts, McKenzie-McHarg said.
This year we introduced a jungle
gym program for two to four year
The club has opened at Belconnen
Community Centre and Palmerston
District Primary School.
The programs cater for children as
young as two through to adults.
Women's sports stars protest axing of coverage
Basketball pioneer Lucille Bailie
recalls washing car windscreens for $2
as part of team fund-raising and says
women s sport will return to the dark
ages if the ABC follows through with
its decision to axe television coverage
of the WNBL and W-League soccer
next season. Bailie, the most capped
WNBL player of all time, presented a
petition of almost 5000 signatures to
Canberra s ABC office on Thursday.
She joined a co-ordinated national
protest against the national
broadcaster s decision to cut coverage
of the two women s leagues.
Australian Opals coach Brendan
Joyce and Canberra Capitals veteran
Jess Bibby were part of the Canberra
contingent to march into the ABC.
Meanwhile Australian basketball
captains Lauren Jackson, Michelle
Timms and Rachel Sporn are among
past and present players who have
joined the national cause.
Bailie, who played 377 WNBL
games, said she was shattered by
the ABC s decision due to budget
concerns and said she couldn t sit idle.
Sometimes things happen, you
sigh, sit back and go that s life . But
I m sorry, this is not the right decision,
it s shattering, said Bailie, who went
on to captain the Capitals.
PRO CYCLING TEAM
CAPTAIN RIDING WELL
Canberra cyclist Mathew Hayman
wants to continue riding
professionally until he is 40.
The 36-year-old has signalled his
intentions to ride for another two or
three years, although the Orica
GreenEDGE captain said this would
be the last year of a two-year contract
as he did not want to get locked into a
deal longer than a season so he could
pull the pin when he feels the time is
Hayman has shown he is in good
early season form, getting involved in
several breakaways at last week s Tour
of Qatar as he continues his build up
towards the Paris-Roubaix in two
months time -- his main goal of
