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:-
most off the rainbows have moved back down to the Lake but you will fined 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:-Looks fantastic at present and the water is still rising but the fish have not been coming in around the edges in big numbers yet. With the edges warming and the Midges and Caddis numbers Rising it won't be long before it really fires up. Evening is the best time to hit the lake for rising fish. The are jumping out off the water chasing Dragon fly’s so it might be a good idea to move the fly’s a lot faster along the water.

Best areas to look are Seven Gates, Buckenderra, Braemer,Coppermine, Collingwood, Yens, Springwood

Night fishing will improve over the next few weeks with the rising water. Dark flies like Craigs, Fuzzies, Phantoms, are the go. Mudeye patterns will account for a few fish in the next week or two.

Lake Jindabyne:- The fishing in Jindabyne has still been quite good and better than expected. The dropping water has slowed the polaroiding for some but there are still fish around the edges that are very polaroidable. Fishing around the weedy banks on the western side will get you some good results.

Night time fishing has been good with some nice reports coming in. Muddler Minnows, Fuzzy Wuzzys, Hammils and Tom Jones work very well at this time of year..

Best areas to look at are Sids Bay, Hatchery Bay, Creel Bay, Kangaroo Bay, and Kalkite.


hey mick,
caught this brown around from the dam wall on a brown bead head woolly bugger just coming onto dark. Thanks tory

                   
 

Lake Tantangara :- No Reports

Baitfishing :- Mudeyes are back in stock now and are producing some good fish at both Jindabyne and Eucumbene. Bait fishing has been excellent in Jindabyne with Gulp Power bait and standard Power bait and the new Magic Morsels Trout Bait. Quality fish are coming in from the Rushes Bay, Waste point Kalkite and Hatchey Bay areas. Best Bait is scrub worms picking up some good Browns.


Trolling and Spinning

 

Eucumbene:-Trolling has improved in the lake and boat access is very easy also.

Trolling will be good but you still have to find the fish. Reports suggest that hugging the shore in close early has produced best results. Other have found fish in the deeper water near the dam wall and Braemar and around Buckenderra and seven gates are the best areas to troll.

All types of lures will work this week with yellows, greens and pinks in Tassie and Cobra style lures very popular.

The new strike pro Blades are proving popular and have taken a number of fish already.

Spotted dog minnows in Rapalas, Attacks, RMG Scorpions,are great lures to try. Try some of the larger lures down deep to search out the bigger browns.

Gladiator lipless minnows and Smilin Jack Hoppers behind cowbells or fenders are another great early season lure to try.

Best areas to look at this week are the Dam wall, Buckenderra, Seven gates and Anglers reach.

Best Tassie’s are Y05, Y82, Y94, 107, 104, 23, 36, 78

Best sting lures 25, 17, 12, 15 ,8, 4, 16

               

       

Hi Patto 
heres a brief account for you on the 2 Kids Fishing Workshops we ran at the Gaden trout Hatchery on the 28 and 29th September

As you will recall the weather was pretty bad and cancelling was considered on both days, rain on Friday and snow on Saturday and strong winds and potential storms on both days

Luckily the hatchery was reasonably sheltered from the wind on the Friday

25 kids on Friday and 21 on Saturday all caught fish, mostly on tassie devils, 5 was the most caught by any one kid

the staff had released some salmon into the pond without telling us and 5 were caught, weighing about 4kg each and in great condition

there was plenty of fish acrobatics during the fights

it was a real challenge for some of the smaller kids to hold their  rods up

A fly caught salmon was lost just inches from the net when it lunged for freedom and straightened  the hook, excited kids don't want to let any line go unfortunately

attached is a pic of one of the salmon caught and the flyer for the next workshops in January

your support is appreciated

regards
