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:

Fly Fishing Rivers..windy conditions are still making it hard to fish most of the rivers up in the high country
The Eucumbene river has been very hard to fish with all the wind as are all the other rivers so let’s hope this all stops soon.
We did get some good reports on the other small rivers around the area but only on the good days with no wind so the fish are there we just need this wind to stop.
Don’t forget about the Monaro rivers we have been stocking them for sometime now so they should be fishing well if you haven’t fished these rivers around hear give it a go the rivers are running and there clear. To me this is fishing and it’s been awhile now and I’m looking forward to getting out there.
Remember the Eucumbene and Thredbo are not the only rivers about get out there and have a look at all the other rivers you will be surprised.


Hi all, have been fishing Lake Jindabyne during the ant falls lately with moderate success. There has been some big fish close in at the right time. You need to have the best winged ant pattern you can find and some nice accurate casting. The fish are there!!
Tight lines !

Lake Eucumbene:-reports have been up and down fisherman are coming in saying the fishing is great and others have been saying it’s no good?
we are starting to get reports off rainbows taking the flies around Yens Bay and seven gates all on Mrs Simpsons and Hamill’s Killers, Fuzzy’s.
We all know the fish are out there and thing have been slow but this is only because the wind is blowing the hell out of us and it’s hard to fly fish in these conditions but as it did last Saturday night it stopped the lake was still the fishing was good all rainbows not one brown.
Now the rain has come the lake is rising things should Improve best areas are Yens bay, seven gates, Buckenderra, Rushes bay
Best wet flies are Hamill’s, Fuzzys, Mrs Simpsons, has anyone tried any Minnows yet??
   

Ross Bourke, Caught on fly with a black Phantom just after dark...just over 6lb.

Heading up again on Friday arvo..Hopefully more pics to come


                          


Lake Jindabyne:-
Has been much the same in the past week with the windy conditions but it is fishing much like Euc when the wind stops the fishing is good most people are fishing around the western side off the lake with good results.
Fishing on the windy days most wet flies are working well Mrs Simpsons, woolly buggers, phantoms, Fuzzys when the wind has stopped dry’s have been great with plenty of fish rising in close and out wide.
So both lakes are doing much the same to me the lakes are fishing well the brown are big and fat if I could get one over 5lb I’m happy yes most fisherman are getting them around this size even bigger it might only be one or three but there good fish.


2.5 kg brown caught trolling Buckenderra last weekend by Mathew Boys.

                                            


TROLLING AND SPINNING JINDABYNE & EUCUMBENE,
Trolling around Eucumbene has been good with some good reports around Buckenderra, Rushes bay, Wainui Bay, have been the stand out bays
Most people are using Blades, tassies, Rapalas, and the new strike Pro Bob N Spoons.
We been getting some good reports in most of these fish have been taking Blades, Tassies and Sting lures
At the moment I would be fishing around Buckenderra this seems to be the place to be with the reports getting better and better every week.
best tassies are most yellow wings, 55, 67, 88, 94 don’t forget to try the sting lures as well.
Best areas are Buckenderra, Rushes bay, yens bay, Dam wall the best lure by fare has been the snowy minnow of the banks this lure amazes me it always bring the best results when it’s windy. When Trolling Jindabyne stay in close to the banks using tassies, Blades, Celtas,

            “BAIT FISHING IS FANTASTIC”
 
  BAIT IN STOCK MUDEYES, WORMS, GRUBS, POWER BAIT
 
JINDABYNE... Jindabyne is still fishing really well regardless of the releasing of the waters. The fish have been caught on Power bait under scrub worm and some reports show mudeyes are coming in to the swing of things. If the weather allow if you cannot go past a worm under a bubble float and hold on as the big browns take off with it. Yes we have Mudeyes now and there picking up the rainbows out wide.
 
Eucumbene-:Bait fishing is really good with some good reports coming in most off the fishing has been down the bottom end off the lake the browns are taking worms and grubs with the worms doing the best. The power bait has been a little slow but it’s still working well on the rainbows. What can I say about the bait reports well it’s fantastic and the browns are everywhere and big so all I can say get up there and have a good time.
