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

Flyfishing 
Rivers:- not much has change
Well the rivers haven’t been to bad but things could improve. on the Thredbo river we still are getting good reports down below the bridge with some good rainbows being caught
Most fish have been over 2lb with a few browns as well up above the ski tube has been pretty good with the browns if your fishing though the day have a good look in the deep holes
Is  where you will see some good cruising around.
Best fly’s are caddis, Adams parachute, stimulator,
If you are not having and luck with the dry’s and the fish are on the bottom get the B/H Nymph on and roll it down to them this has been making the fish more active.
 
On the Euc river has been much the same as the Thredbo most off the fish have been working there way up to the gorge this is where you will find the cooler water and the fish are more active.
Best fly’s are B/H Nymphs, red tag, Klinkhammers, Royal wulff, Royal Humpy, caddis
 
Moonbah river is still the pick off the rivers with plenty of fish been caught but a lot smaller but with the right gear you can make it a good day out.
 Most of the fish are taking dry’s best fly’s are Royal wulff, red tags, snowy mtns hopper, Adams parachute,
Remember there only small fish but this river will make you think that this is what it’s all about!!
 
In the Monaro thing are picking up most of the streams have been running well for the last two ½ YEARS Cooma, Bombala, Delegate, Mclaughlin river, Bobundara river, and many more have been stocked
With fish for the past two years so if the rivers keep flowing things are going to be better next season.
                  

                                           

 
Hi guys,
 
Just thought I'd send some pics of some nice browns I picked up before the weekend on a few different spots on the bidgee. Not many fish caught but all good sized ones, and two polaroided which was cool, I was using a size 12 wee muddler, occasionally with a nymph hung under the shank but all these fish bar one took the dry.
 
Cheers, Mikey Shanahan.

Seven gates same again late in the afternoon using the same fly’s as Braemer Bay using a slow retrieve what I have found out the slower the better.
Yes the fish are out there but few and far in between but when you hook up there good.
If you are fishing Middingbank the best fishing has been over on the east side so go for a walk get that wind behind your back you will be surprised on the results.
Yes the fishing has been hard so if you are not having any luck move on!!!
 
Guthega and three mile are fishing well so with some good browns and rainbows my pick would be Guthega on a good day.
