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

River Flyfishing
Eucumbene down around Providence is very slow but as you move up higher the better it gets with the browns moving more in the cooler water
Tantangara river has improved with more fish moving about after the recent rain not much but it did the job.
Thredbo river, has been much better with more fish moving around down the lower end below the bridge. And around Thredbo town you will be very surprised worth a look
Moonbah river, is still fishing well on dry’s the water is clear and fresh and the grasshoppers are about. The afternoon fishing is the best time.
Murrumbidgee River above and below Adaminaby is fishing very well most of the fish have been caught in the afternoon from around 5pm till dark. Remember fishing the rivers are good but if you go out in the middle of the day it’s hard very hard pick your times you will have fun!!!

Hi Guys, 
 
Here's a photo of a good brown I picked up in the bidgee. Polaroided in a rapid pocket water and brought undone with a very heavy hare's ear, fish was in good nick and put up a massive fight, didn't like the net at all! This was low down on the bidgee so the water was up a bit dirty with the rain but fished higher up too were the water was clearer and spotted a few similar fish, couldn't get a take in the slower clearer water, good fun though.
Mikey.

Hey Mick,
Last weeks report was light on pics, so here's a couple.  We fished Euc Wednesday night. It was a pretty slow despite quite a few mudeyes hatching, don't go without waders as its a mudfest.  The browns are in top nic if you're lucky enough to hook one,
cheers
