HEADLINES


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 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

 
 
Euc Rivers:-well most rivers have been running well with good rain over the weekend.
most off the rainbows have moved back down to the Lake but you will finned them in patches up the river so take your time and have a good look. Most fishermen are finding them in the deeper holes below the runs with the warmer weather moving in you will find fish starting to move up to the top this would be a good time to start using a few Dry flies though the day B/H Nymphs with a indicator will work well.

Thredbo River:- has been very slow so if you wonder up that way do much the same as you would in the Euc River



 
Lake Eucumbene:- fly fishing around Euc is still going well with most fishermen fishing close to shore and getting good Results.
still a good number off browns being caught around Buckenderra, seven gates, Rushy's, and the Dam Wall
Just Remember you must go looking for them standing in one spot won't help.
most fish are taking Nymphs, woolly buggers, Mrs Simpsons,
there have been a few Mudeye’s about so late in the afternoon start trying some Muddler patterns.


 

                

           

  
                  


    "jindy is fishing very well worth a look"
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.
 

Atlantic salmon from the j lake. 17/10/12
I am leaving Jindabyne after 18 years and would like to say goodbye to all my fly fishing buddies. Thanks to the crew at Alpine Angler and a special Thankyou to NSW fisheries for all my lovely toys, especially Mr Sam Crocker, their " dad".
Don't breathe too easy fish, am only moving to Canberra !!




                    




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 100,86,52,99,104,Y62,Y36 Minnows, Blades, Rapalas, sting lures are working well

7pd Brown trout caught at Jindy on the weekend trolling with a Rapala.



                  


Did someone say it was spring we had the best snowfall for 2012 last week everyone that came to visit had snow on arrival and  beautiful weather by the end of the weekend. Over the last few weeks we have seen some nice size browns been caught.
Scrub worms are doing very well from the bank  Emily Cooney caught a nice brown 64cm weighing in at 2.74kg (I have a photo attached). Also from the bank power bait chunky cheese and sherbert were the flavours catching mainly rainbows.
Trolling is picking up Tassie Devil no 48 was definitely the favourite for the week and some of the yellow wing as well  there were a lot of browns caught some up to 6lb. Spinning  blades was successful a 7lb brown was caught just below the boat ramp. Haven’t heard too much with fly fishing but with the warmer weather coming up I am sure we will see a lot more of them.
 
Regards
Terri




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
