ALL RIVERS OPEN THIS WEEKEND SATURDAY MORNING 4/10/2014
 
The Thredbo river is looking good at the moment the best place is at paddy’s corner down to the bridge most fish have gone past the Hatchery that’s where you will find most off the rainbows.
things are looking better then last year thank god.
The Eucumbene river is running well reports have been all down around Providence with rainbows schooling up at the mouth off the river there has been reports off fish up higher again things are looking better then last year.
As always Glow bugs and Nymphs will be the flies to use this weekend good luck and have fun.





Hi guys,
 
Just thought I'd sent through a quick pic of a nice brown I picked up at eucambene on Friday. He was cruising a steep ledge moving towards a shallower bay when I spotted him and picked him up on a purple tungsten head bugger. Lake looks great, can't wait for it to warm up a bit!
 
Cheers, Mikey. 






FLY FISHING EUCUMBENE & JINDABYNE things are starting to look good around the lakes with good reports off fish rising late in the afternoons and into the night..

Most fly fishing has been ok in areas with good reports off fish rising in the afternoons down the bottom end off the lake Rushes, Seven gates, frying pan best places to target are all the gully areas after all that rain the water has been flowing in down the gully’s
that’s where the rainbows and browns have been feeding. Woolly Buggers, Woollie Worms, Fuzzy’s, Mrs Simpsons have been the pick off the flies.
the good part off this fishermen have been coming in saying they have seen a lot off fish rising so lets hope this continues.
Once October gets here it’s Nymph time thing should Improve on the lakes.
Over at Jindabyne things are starting to look better with good results coming from Kalkite, sids bay, poo bay, reports have been good up the river with rainbow going up spawning ‘’NOW THAT’S GOOD’’
Remember it’s only early yet there’s not much insect life around at the moment but when it happens i think we are in for a good year!!
I’ll be heading up Eucumbene river next week to have a look at the rainbows lets hope there up there if they are it should be a good season on lake Eucumbene so stay tuned.
