SOMETHING fishy has anglers hooked on the banks of the Nepean River.
Since water flooded over the top of Warragamba Dam into the catchment last month, local fishermen have been catching trout in the river - a fish they haven't seen there for 15 years.
While western Sydney's recreational fisherman usually hibernate throughout the winter as the usual species go off the bite, experts say trout thrive in the cold water and they will be around for at least the next four months.

Penrith's Australian Bass Angler tackle store owner Peter Jacovides went looking for the mountain fish and caught more than 100 trout in just one tiny stretch of river last week.
"They were averaging about 700g but we got a few around 2kg. They are good fish.

"There is hardly anything to fish for in the Penrith area during winter - enough to say don't even bother throwing out a line. But it looks like we might have a winter fishery for once."
Business for local fishing shops is expected to rise on news of the discovery.
As trout are a cooler climate fish and normally found in cooler waters, they will probably survive through the winter, but will be unlikely to survive into the summer as the water warms up.

I am going to be up the river for some Bass fishing this weekend and hopefully nail myself my first Trout!!!,,,,,, Stay Tuned!!!.....
