Thredbo river is up and running with all that rain thing can only get better most fishermen are fishing up higher on the Thredbo with good reports coming from the town it’s self and down lower at the diggings the little Thredbo has been good and down around the ski tube.
All rivers will be running a little higher this weekend so don’t put them glow bugs away yet try Paddy corner and down lower there’s still rainbows about remember don’t look for them cast into the runs most fishermen are walking past them!!
Eucumbene river is running well from top to bottom we are getting good reports off fish up around sawyers and Kiandra.
Remember all rivers are running a little faster the weekend so get them Nymphs down.
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 is looking good with all that rain things will Improve at the moment the water is running in everywhere the lake is up over the grass and the fish are moving.

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.
Popped down on the weekend and ducked out for a fish on sunday arvo at the lake had the whole place to myself. Spotted a big brown taking dragon flies close to the thistles. I tried damsel patterns and a lot of other tricks but, eventually got him to eat a fuzzy he went 57cm one of my best fish from the lake on fly. Pic attached. Lots like you had a good day on the thredbo! Cheers, Marc Howard
