Flyfishing....
fishing is starting to pick up best areas are  from the mouth of Eucumbene up past providence this weekend we should see more browns going up so if you are looking for that big one this is the time to be up there now the rain has come the rivers should be running well so this is the time you should be up there to get them big ones. The Thredbo river is doing much the same as Eucumbene the fish are there but not up that fare so from the bridge down you will have better results.

 

*Remember that from the 1st of May the size and bag limit changes in the Eucumbene and Thredbo Rivers.  From May 1 you may only keep ONE fish OVER 50cms per day in these waters.  Fisheries will be very active this season in these waters so make sure you stick to these rules and have your fishing licence with you while fishing.

 

Rivers:-   

Have been fishing well with the Eucumbene and Thredbo rivers holding good numbers of fish with plenty of rainbows amongst them.  Angler numbers have been high and can make the fishing difficult at time.Water levels have been low and clear and this has made fishing challenging for some. Beadhead nymphs seem to be better performers on browns while globugs have been the favourite pattern for the rainbows.Early starts are a key to getting the most out of the rivers at present though on some mornings icing guides are an issue.  If you expect to catch a heap of fish starting after 9am, expect to be dissapointed. Fishing the harder to access areas will improve your chances greatly.Rain is really need to give a boost to the fish numbers in the Euc and Thredbo so keep an eye on the weather patterns.Other smaller streams in the area are still well worth fishing and are ideal if you want to avoid crowds.





Lake Jindabyne:-
Reports from Jindabyne have been picking up with some good fishing around Kalkite, snowy arm, down around the dam wall. Best wet flies are large fuzzys, woolly buggers, and Mrs Simpsons the bigger the flies the better get away from your small Nymphs and other small wets if you have a intermediate line go for it. It’s been working well.

Lake Eucumbene.
Daytime fishing has generally been the best with the evenings and night time fishing a little slow. Bead head nymphs and woolly buggers fished slow and deep have been the best fish takers of late. There have been some nice rainbows being caught for those who put a bit of time in. With the cooler weather moving in the fishing should start improving.
There has been some good Browns around Providence, Anglers Reach Woolly buggers have been working well and black B/H Nymphs are keeping the big fish interested. have been getting good reports on the fly with intermediate and sinking lines have been doing well. Yes the reports have been slow and fisherman not doing so good so change what you are doing and get down to where the fish are you will find the results a lot better on a sinking line.
Best wet flies are woolly buggers, B/H Nymphs, woolly worms, Fuzzy’s
Best areas have been Anglers Reach, Providence, Remember the fishing is hard and I’m doing my best to let you know where there biting. at the moment I’m getting reports from Providence, Anglers Reach Buckenderra and Rushes, Seven gates are a little slow but some people are finding them and doing well the key is walk till you find them.



TROLLING AND SPINNING

Jindabyne:-
. Trolling has been doing ok most people are getting the fish down deep with diving minnow and trolling slow with Tassie Devils

The quality of some of the fish has been superb with real football like condition. Best spots to troll have been poo bay, Creel Bay, Kangaroo Bay, the bank between Sid's and Kalkite and close to the township.
spinning from the banks with Blades have been getting some good rainbows and browns.
trolling and spinning have picked up in the last week with the cooler weather moving in.
TASSIE DEVILS 55,26,115,y48,s12,4,76,pp,16
STING LURES 12,13,16,6,22,3
Min Min's , Tilsans






Eucumbene Buckenderra has been going well again with Tassie Devils and sting Lures things are starting to pick up.
Tassie Devils and sting Lures have been working very well in the early hours out deep.
Most of the fish being caught have been rainbows but there is always the chance of a brown.
Small Attack minnows have accounted for several fish for one group while Blades have been great for another boat.
Most of the fisherman are getting down deep with down riggers or lead weights with good results not much has change in the lures selection.

BAIT FISHING

JINDABYNE & EUCUMBENE....  WORMS ARE THE STANDOUT BAIT AT THE MOMENT
Reports have continued to be great with fish being taken on worms and power bait. Worms under a bubble have been working very well also Power bait is working well.
in the last week good reports have been coming in with worms under a bubble with about a 9foot lead from the bubble.
Seven Gates, Dam wall and Buckenderra, Anglers Reach and Old Adaminaby in Eucumbene. Worms have been the stand out bait at the moment Kenny Cain from Berridale has been fishing with worms at Buckenderra he has been getting some good rainbows and brown.
Jindabyne reports have been a little slow but the fishing should keep improving with the cooler conditions. Creel bay, Sid’s, Hatchery would be well worth a look at the moment.
don't forget if your bubble fishing try some flies it works very well.
Craig’s Night time, Nymphs, woolly buggers
