Trip Description

The Rubicin River is one of the iconic Victorian rivers that is generally productive for a range of different

sized fish.  Flows at the moment are probably not great however the fishing is fair to good.  There are some very

nice fish being caught and released around the area.

Getting There

The Trip to Kendall A will take about 1 1/2 hours.  Turn right at Thornton and then left down Rubicon Rd just

after you cross the river.  The camping ground is on your left not long after you leave the sealed road.  If you

don't have transport and would like to attend the trip, let the trip coordinator know so we can find you a lift.

The Taj will be set up so you won't need too much if you are short on camping gear.  The camp site is well laid

out and has good toilets.

Thornton has all the usual amenities.

Fishing

The Rubicon has a range of fishing options ranging from difficult pocket water to slow runs holding better sized

fish.

Flies

Your usual arsenal of summer dry flies such as termites, Red tags, beetle patterns, stimulators and duns will keep

with plenty of choices.  Recent trips have indicated that smaller rather than larger flies have been working

better.  A size 14 parachute Adams has recently been very productive, so if you don't have any just wait till the

Secretary isn't looking and open his fly box.
