Headlines Fishing has been awesome overall with Lake Eucumbene rising to 33.4%, still coming up and fishing really well on mudeyes both natural and artificial. Trollers have been doing well in both of the main lakes.
Rivers:- Have been had some great water and plenty of fish on the go. Some better browns have been showing and may have run out of the lakes recently.
With all the good water around there are plenty of options for fishing, The Gungarlin, Eucumbene, Thredbo, Little Thredbo, Snowy, Moonbah, Murrumbidgee and really any other piece of flowing water should produce some fantastic Autumn fishing.
Hoppers and beetle patterns have been very good as searching flies along with Adam's Parachute and Klinkhamers.
Other best flies have been Elk hair caddis, foam black and green beetles, stimulators, humpy, Wulffs, red tag and deer hair beetles. Nymphs that are working have been pheasant tails, gold ribbed hares ear, black and brown beadheads and copper johns.
Lake Eucumbene:- Rising and at a good temperature now has been firing both daytime and evenings.
Mudeyes have made up a the majority of fish stomach contents.
Nymphing or small sinking mudeye patterns during the day have been productive while muddler or similar mudeye pattern have been very good.
There are still fish chasing adult dragonflies currently. They can be very challenging, though Gino Corsini did manage to snare a 2kg brown on a green beetle recently. A great fish and it may be that getting the fish to see the fly is the important part.
*Matt and Antoni had a sixteen fish session recently with a mixture of different sized rainbows on mudeye stlye patterns.
*Kieran had a dozen fish session last night with four of them coming off five casts. Fish were not huge but provided a lot of fun. Mum's Poodle was the stand out fly. "Go the Poodle"
Best areas have been Braemar, Buckenderra, Seven Gates, and Cobrabald.
Lake Jindabyne:- Jindabyne reports have been quiet over the past week. But should have cooled enough to be doing similar things as Eucumbene with the mudeyes.
Lake Tantangara :- No reports
Trolling and Spinning
Eucumbene:- Some good numbers of fish about but a mixture of quality. Leadcoring has been the best overall with the Coppermine Cobrabald, Middilingbank area being very consistent.
Mick Couvee and Paul Thompson had a great session on Eucumbene hooking eighteen fish and landing twelve. All bar one were rainbows and all fat pan sizes fish. Y82, 48 and S10 Tassies were the best colours fished on three colours of leadcore.
Jindabyne:- Some great quality rainbows with fish over the kilo mark have been getting caught by those using two to three colours of leadcore. Tassies in Holographic, Y82 and 89 are the pick of the colours. RMG Scorpions have been great in the R36 "Gravy Train"
Best rainbow this week was a 1.8kg rainbow on a Y97 Tassie.
Reports have been great with fish being taken on mudeyes and reports of the fish being full of them have been many.
Mudeyes under a bubble are the obvious best baits but also Powerbait is working well.
Jaqui from Buckenderra reports,
Rob caught 3 rainbows on Chunky Cheese Gulp Bait and a scrubworm.
Hans and his mate caught 10 rainbows last night on Chunky Cheese and Rainbow Candy Gulp Bait. Most were a good size and good weight.
Gordo & Phil caight 23 rainbows on mud eye and mud eye fly. "The Mudeyes are scarce", they said. They cut their fish open and used live mudeye from the stomach of the trout.

Jindabyne reports have been a little slow but the fishing should keep improving with the cooler conditions. Creel bay, Sids, Hatchery would be well worth a look at the moment.
