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 Maritimes are out. 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.

Maritime services are on the lakes, So make sure you water craft are up to par with current safety standards, if you are not sure contact Ph 13 12 56 or website:

Fly Fishing

Rivers:- Rivers reopen September 29th 2012. The weather is looking good for the opening and with both the Thredbo and the Eucumbene holding plenty of fish there will be plenty of fun to be had. Globugs and Nymphs are the go in the Euc and Thredbo with some Tungsten Nymphs very handy to get down with to the fish.
All the mountain streams have plenty of water at present and lots of fish around so it should be a great opening.
The Eastern streams are also holding good water and may fish well conditions allowing.
So good luck to everyone who goes up there and remember theres room for everyone. So if anyone gets a good fish send them pics in with your report
to info@alpineangler.com.au.........good luck





Lake Eucumbene.
 

 

Lake Eucumbene:-  Fly reports have been continually improving with some good silver rainbows around in many areas and little bit of polaroiding at times.
There were some caddis hatches on dark last week and fish have been on snails and stick caddis in some areas. 
Fishing is definitely improving in the Middilingbank, Seven Gates and Old Adaminaby areas.
For those bank fishing the best flies at present are beadhead nymphs, beadhead scruffies, tom jones, Haye's stick caddis, black and peacock spider and woolly buggers.
 

                 


Lake Jindabyne:-  Jindabyne reports have continued to improve with some great polaroiding.  The fishing can still be hard but you may be able to get enough shots that you find a fish that eats.  Weather may play a big role too in how hungry and active the fish are.  The main thing is they are there.
The lake is now going down but the fishing is still good with many fish are close to the shore with good numbers off browns taking woolly Buggers black,brown, and olive, B/H Nymphs are going well but let them drop for about 15 seconds.
 
Lake Tantangara :- No Reports
 



 
    
Trolling and Spinning
 
Eucumbene
 
Eucumbene trolling reports have been good with some nice rainbows showing up in many areas and a few browns too. The browns are not all in great condition but the rainbow quality have made up for this for many.
Middilingbank has been good this past week and the bays around seven gates area continues to fish well.
 
Most Lures are Working Well Tassies Y48.101,26,s12,y94,36,y36,81,88,y05 Minnows, Blades, Rapalas,sting lures are working well
              

 
 
 
Jindabyne
 
Jindabyne has produced few reports this week. There are still some good fish to be caught in Jindabyne but early starts are the key to catching them especially when the weather is super calm. Some nice fish taken trolling around the outside of the weed beds in many of the bays. Best areas to fish around, Poo bay down below the jindabyne club, snowline caravanPark Kalkite and wast point. things have been a little slow so your lure selection is important.Blade lures would do well on the big browns as will the rainbow  Rapala X-Raps and Jointed minnows are working as well. Still good reports of good fish have been court around the snowy arm and Kalkite. Reports that east Jindabyne is fishing very well

Baitfishing
 
Eucumbene
Bait fishing has been fairly good with some nice reports of rainbows and Browns being taken on powerbait and Srcub worms.Buckenderra has been the best area to fish with good size brown taking worms with rainbows on the power bait 
 
Best locales to try in Eucumbene continue to be Seven Gates, Buckenderra, and the Dam wall.
 
Jindabyne
 
Jindabyne has produced a few fish too over the weekend with worms being the dominating bait. Winter is a great time for chasing rainbows on power bait and though it is cold, these fish will give many anglers a heap of fun and food over the next couple of months. Best areas are poo bay, clay pitts, snowline park
