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:
www.maritime.nsw.gov.au

Fly Fishing

 
 
Rivers:-well the weather has been wet, wet ,wet, but there has been some good reports up the Euc river but not many most fish have moved back down. With the rivers up and running hard most fishermen have been doing it hard and looking in the deeper water with some good results.
with the river running so hard you must get to the bottom with the Glow bugs no bottom no fish.
at the moment you will have to go looking for the fish standing in one spot won't help.
The Thredbo river is not doing much better with most off the fish have gone back down stream.
So if you are looking for a hook up downstream would be the best place to go....good luck



 

Lake Eucumbene:- is still fishing good around Rushy’s Buckenderra, seven gates, and old Adaminaby.
if you wan't better results you must go looking for the fish standing in one spot won't help.
The weather has been playing a big part for most fishermen this has been putting the fish down you will find it a lot better if you start using B/H Nymphs and woolly buggers and start counting down to see where the fish are.

 

 

           

 
                 


 
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

Baitfishing
 
Eucumbene
 
 

Bait fishing has been fairly good with some nice reports of rainbows and Browns being taken on power bait and Srcub Worms..Buckenderra has been the best area to fish with good size brown taking worms with rainbows on the power bait

Best places 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

           
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 68,78,59,76,84,Y36,Y62,55 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 caravan Park 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.
best lures by fare are the strike pro Blades
            
 
        
Hi guys,
 
John McNeil and I picked up some nice brown trout today by trollling Jindabyne. Attached is a photo of best four (1 x 53cm, 2 x 45cm, and 1 x 33cm). We also caught and released another six fish (3 brown and 3 rainbows) that were legal size (we had a enough for a feed).
Best lures today: flatfish (with a white and yellow underbelly) and a Rapala brown trout pattern (50mm?). Flatfish must have been used in this lake for a lot of years but they still appear to work! 
Intersting but possilbly not relevant is that majority of fish were caught on the one rod - 2 kg braid with a 2m 2 kg flororcarbon leader.
Two out of four browns had guts full of yabbies!
 
Regards,
Tom Penders
