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:

THREDBO RIVER
Well the river has Improved this year with good reports off rainbows up and down the river up past the hatchery with better results.
Most fishermen using glow bugs and Nymphs the tricky part off fishing was blind casting to most off the fish with good results most off the time.
Most fishermen on the river were having a good time and others not so good i think the key to it was cast into the fast water don’t look for the fish well it worked for me within  5min i had two fish on and after that I drop about 5 not bad going.
Overall the fishing is much better this year the rainbows are coming back and looking good and with the reports coming from the Lakes the rainbow are starting to move around now so around November things should start to happen.
 
EUCUMBENE RIVER 
The river was fishing a little better then last year with some good reports and not so good reports better reports coming in on Monday with people fishing the runs with good results think the key was to fish not sight fishing.
Overall things are looking good this year so once the insects start thing will Improve in the river up and down the Euc.
 
TANTANGARA RIVER
Reports were ok with rainbows and brown moving up and down most parts off the river well worth a look this weekend after all that rain.

All other rivers around the snowy mountains are fishing well so now the weather is getting better it’s time to start looking.

Don’t forget the Monaro rivers are all running well and they all should have fish so it’s time to  get out there.
 
 
FLY FISHING LAKE EUCUMBENE & JINDABYNE
Lake Eucumbene has been patchy in places but things are looking good up at the top end off the lake things have been very slow but down around Buckenderra ,Middlingbank ,Rushes and seven gates
things are looking better with fish rising late in the afternoons and there has been a lot off fish about.
Most fishermen have been using Nymphs and small Midge flies with good results won’t be long till the mudeyes come on then thing should really kick in with the rainbows and browns.
Yes the season is looking a lot better then last year the fish are moving on the top out wide and in close.
 
Best places are Buckenderra, Middlingbank, Rushes, seven gates
Best wet flies are small Nymphs, Woolly buggers,
Best dry flies are small midges, Royal wulff with a Nymph dropper
 
Lake Jindabyne things are looking good over on the west side off the lake there has been plenty off browns in close and out wide polaroiding around the lake has been great with good results coming in remember early mornings are the best.
Still getting good reports on rainbows in the lake big and small. Things are early yet and the best is yet to happen once we get more insects and mudeyes moving around Jindy will be good this year.

BAIT FISHING
Bait fishing Eucumbene has been really good in places Seven gates, Rushes, middlingbank all on worms not many fish have been taking the Power bait at the moment but if the rainbow do come on things will change yes they will come on soon there has been some good reports off rainbows moving around out wide and some have been close with some lucky fishermen getting them. Overall the bait fishing has been good but remember only down at the bottom end off the lake only.
Good reports from the locals up at Tantangara with the bait fishing again all on worms good reports off rainbows and browns but the rainbows would not touch the power bait?
Over at Jindabyne things have been ok on the power bait and worms the best thing about jindy is the rainbows are nice and fat and the browns are full off yabbies and there on the bite.
Overall the bait fishing is good on all lakes.
