Fern Glade Reserve is a highly-regarded launching point for kayakers. The typical paddling course of the Emu River is about nine miles. This provides about three hours or more of serene recreation. This is also a treasured spot for fly fishermen. They angle for predominately brown trout from the shoreline or while wading into the river in search of an occupied deep hole. Surprised to hear of trout in Tasmania? The brown, rainbow and brook trout were imported from England in the mid-19th century.
