We are getting a lot of feed back from the Seven Gates area about fires and rubbish left all over the place.
Please be mindful to take your rubbish with you and clean up after yourself.
Please be sure to carry your PFD & fishing licences as NSW Maritime are out at Christmas time. Nsw fisheries inspectors are working the Snowy Mountains area during the peak holiday season. So remember if you do not have a current fishing licence and on your person you will be fined. So for the sake of 5 minutes do yourself a favour.

Have continued to fish well with plenty of fish and insects about for them to eat. Dry fly fishing has been great with plenty of varying sized fish being caught. The Thredbo has been great with some good small browns, rainbows and some thumper browns.
There are a myriad of smaller streams that have been fishing well of late and certainly dries have been very effective. Light rods, light tippets and small flies are the go for some good fun in these waters.
Caddis and Mayflies have been hatching in many streams so patterns representing these are good options at present.
There have been many productive patterns worth using of late. Try Wullfs, Humpys, klinkhamers, parachute adams, elk hair caddis, blue wing olive, greenwells glory, and parachute caddis.
The Moonbah, Murrumbidgee, , Eucumbene, Thredbo are all great rivers to have a look at over the next few weeks.
Eucumbene river has continued to fish well on drys and nymphs
Best Drys Black Nymphs, Klinkhammer, Humpy Red
Lake Eucumbene:- Fly reports have been fantatsic on the whole.
The lake has been fishing really well both during the day and the evenings.
the warmer weather conditions tougher for anglers, but the fish love this sort of weather and those who have persisted have come away with some great fish.
Best flys are B/H Nymphs, wooly Buggers, Fuzzy Wuzzys,
Muddlers, Craig's Nightime.

The bait fishing in Eucumbene has been good with many anglers catching a couple per session. Powerbait in your favourite colour has been taking plenty of good fish and mudeyes fished deep or off the bottom is the other best bait at the moment. Mudeye action has varied from night to night and location to location. There are mudeyes around in big numbers in some areas and the fish have been onto them. In other locales the fish have been eating water flea, daphnea, along with the odd mudeye and yabbie.
There are hundreds of likely looking bays, soaks and corners in the lake at present but the ususal haunts of Seven Gates, Buckenderra, Cobrabald, Yens Bay, Cemetary point and Anglers Reach are the pick of the areas overall.
Best areas are Buckenderra, seven Gates,
Best bait Salmon Eggs red + Fl.Yellow and Gurbs + Mudeyes
Josh and jordan williams from cooma had a good day out fishing with dad on

Jindabyne:- has been a little quiet report wise but will produce some excellent bait fishing as over the weekend. Mudeyes Grubs, and Powerbait will be the pick there.
