Greetings finclippers,

Finclipping this year is scheduled at Gaden Trout Hatchery, Jindabyne to start on Tuesday the 14th January 2014. Last year we had such a great roll-up of clippers that we finished all of Eucumbene's rainbows in a day! As such,  I would plan to attend earlier in the week as often the work is done and there is nothing for volunteers who turn up on Thursday/Friday to do.

We will provide lunch, morning and afternoon tea on the day(s) of clipping, so if you feel like helping trout research and can spare a day, a few hours or whatever you like, feel free to join us. There is plenty of time to talk trout with a plethora of like minded people, in the very pleasant Gaden environment.

DPI staff are on site setting up Monday afternoon, but all the action takes place on Tuesday and Wednesday, where we start about 8.00-8.30am.

As per last year, DPI staff will be using the coded wire tagging machines to tag the 50,000 trout to be released into Jindabyne.

All are welcome to join us, but remember that you will need covered in shoes as part of our WHS.

Feel free to forward this message on. If you can let me know if you can attend it would be appreciated.

regards

Jamin

THREDBO RIVER
Thredbo river is still running well and things have Improved.
Most fish are taking the Nymphs in the running waters with the dry’s doing there work in the still waters.
With all this good weather and the insects are starting to get about you should see more and more browns out hunting around.
Best places to try are
The Diggings, ski tube, Thredbo Village, don’t forget the little Thredbo river.  
 
 
EUCUMBENE RIVER 
Eucumbene river is running well from top to bottom most off the fishing has been doing well up high around Kiandra and sawyers.
Fishermen are coming in saying the fishing down the bottom end off the river has been no good telling us they have been looking for fish all day not one to be seen others have been casting in the runs not looking for fish and there doing well
so it sound like you should be doing more casting then looking hope that helps ?



                                                                                                  



 
TANTANGARA
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 reports have been up and down with the fly fishing remember it’s only early yet and things will change once the mudeyes start we should start seeing more rainbows about.

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. At the moment Jindy is fishing really well the rainbows are big and fat and the browns are as well.
The lake at the moment if fishing the best I have seen it for some time now and things are only going to get better.

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.
