Fly Fishing Rivers not much has changed

The Eucumbene river still hasn’t fired yet not many reports coming in as yet let’s hope the weather warms up so the insect life gets active soon.  
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.
Remember pick your times to fish the rivers Best times have been in the afternoons if you are fishing in the middle of the day B/H Nymphs have been working well.
Remember the mountain streams are fishing hard try fishing rivers you haven’t fish before!! Like the Snowy below the Dam wall, Mowambah, Upper Snowy river, Gungarlin river.




    

     
 
Lake Eucumbene:- Most fisherman are getting browns and the rainbows are still out in the deeper waters yes the fly fishing has been hard for most of the fly fishers but the brown are looking good most reports are coming in with browns over the 4lb mark.
Most of the fish are getting Caught around 7pm to 10pm best wet flies are Craig’s night time and black minnows, std black Nymphs.
Best areas are Middlingbank, Seven gates, Rushes,
We are getting mixed reports of people getting fish and people not getting any at all it’s hard to say where to go but at the moment if you are going out fly fishing go at these times as above you should get better results.
Overall the browns are in good nick and big I know thing can get hard at times but the longer you are out there at these time you are at good odds of getting a brown over the 6lb mark.
Best wet flies are.. Craig’s, black Nymphs, woolly buggers, and when it’s dark a purple fuzzy wuzzy is working well on a slow retrieve.
 
 
      

Hey Mick, have been fishing the Jindabyne lake this week in the wind.  Have put in long hours but myself and Daf from clearwater guides have caught some big browns. The quality of fish has been excellent.  Bead bead nymphs fished along rocky shorelines during the day is working well.  Cheers and tight linea to all.

Lake Jindabyne:-
Has been much the same best times are early mornings with a dry fly with a Nymph dropper in the afternoons woolly buggers, black phantom, woolly worm black red, most of the fishing has been ok late in the afternoons with the fish more active. With the lake staying at a good level the fish are starting to move closer to the banks again the Mudeye’s haven’t come on yet so when this happens I’m sure the fishing will pick up remember it’s still early days yet!! Best place to fish at the moment is kalkite black minnows, Craig’s, are the stand out flies.
If you are fishing around the western side of the lake early mornings have been good look for the big browns best flies black and brown Nymphs std size 14

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, and the new strike Pro Bob N Spoons and the flatfish.
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 Arm this seems to be the place to be with the reports getting better and better every week.

                       BAIT FISHING
  
Eucumbene-:Bait fishing is still going well with good reports mostly down the bottom end of the lake most fisherman are getting there fish on worms and mudeyes the power bait is doing ok but with few rainbows about the worms are the pick of the baits.
Good reports from seven gates, Middlingbank, Brookwood bay all these bays are doing well on worms and mudeyes.
If you are going to use power bait put plenty of lead on and get it out there with at least 2 meter leader most fisherman have been trying to get the rainbows with no luck time for a change longer leader more sinkers!!!
With the mudeyes go deeper from your bubble use about a 2 ½ to 3 meter lead or longer remember the fish are in deep water so start try longer leaders.
With the worm you can do what you like the browns are moving around in the shallows and in the deep waters and they are loving the worms.


Tralee's Brown was 55cms and a rainbow we got was 39.\
 
She told you she was going to get her first brown . Get a look at the grin on her Thanks Michael for your local knowledge and the great bait.
 
Both on your scrub worms. The brown had 3 soft shell yabbies. With moon on the rise and water temperature around 21 there will no doubt be more yabbies taken by browns as the yabbies shed the shells.
Regards Ron












BAIT IN STOCK MUDEYES, WORMS, POWER BAIT...WORMS ARE GOING GREAT WITH PLENTY OF BROWNS ABOUT
 
JINDABYNE... Jindabyne has Improved over the few weeks with most of the fishing going well around Kalkite, Kalkite point, and around East Jindabyne.
Remember start fishing with longer leaders again the worm are working well and if you are going to try power bait use a longer leader and more sinkers get it out there!! Mudeyes are picking up again don’t be shy longer leader.
