Looks like we are going to have a great Christmas on both lakes with high water levels and a really good insect hatch. Remember both lakes will be busy over the Christmas holidays and they should be fishing well as they are now so everyone have fun be safe and have a happy christmas. If you need any information about the fishing or where to go give us a call I'll be happy to help.

Hi guys.
Spent a week at Eucumbene with brother Kevin and fished around Coppermine. 
The Browns were on but were only interested in flies with just a couple taking a mudeye. Worms were off the menu too.
Here he is feeling happy with himself with a couple of his catches.
Cheers and regards, 
Andrew.
             


FLY FISHING LAKE EUCUMBENE & JINDABYNE
Things are really picking up now on both lake after all that rain on the weekend the rainbows and browns are really getting active both lake are rising well all over new ground.

Eucumbene is fishing really well with reports coming in fish are taking Nymphs, Midge, Buzzers, late at night small Mrs Simpsons, fuzzys, woolly buggers, Craigs Nightimes, 
Remember go small that seems to be the go. At the moment fish are rising everywhere and most fishermen are having fun what can l say but get up there it’s really good after all the rain on the weekend the fishing is just getting better.The lake is looking so good the water is all over new ground and the fish are moving everywhere when casting try not to get into the water the fish are in nice and close best results have been fishermen casting out off the water. As I said get up there it's fishing well and thanks to the Snowy Hydro and all that rain the lake looks so good and the fishing is good. 
Best areas are Middling bank, Rushes, frying pan, seven gates,
If your a fly fishermen it’s time to get up there this is what we have been waiting for don’t miss it!!
Jindabyne is fishing well along hatchery bay with good reports off rainbows and browns late in the afternoons woolly buggers, Mrs Simpsons, Muddlers are the best flies.

The river is still looking good and flowing well good reports are coming from  the township Thredbo Village and the ski tube late in the afternoons and early mornings. With all the rain on the weekend reports have been good down around the mouth with plenty off food being washed down from the floods.
Down at paddy’s corner there has been some good results with rainbows and browns. Don’t forget about up around the diggings and the little Thredbo river plenty off little fish but fun.

EUCUMBENE RIVER:- The river is picking up with all that rain last weekend and looking good remember fish at the right time you will have a good time if it's a cloudy day you can fish all day! 
Eucumbene river is running well from top to bottom just like the Thredbo we have been getting reports off fishermen not doing so well as i have been saying if your going fishing in the middle off the day it will be tuff you will have more fun and better results in the afternoon and early mornings this is when the fish are more active. We are still getting good reports up higher in the river around Kiandra and down around Sawyers. Trust me you will have a good time everywhere if you fish at the right time and the fish are there small and big.
Don’t forget you have the Murrumbidgee river as well most locals are have a good time.



    
TANTANGARA, Reports have been getting better 
Reports have been good up in the river most fly fishermen have been getting browns and just a few rainbows but it’s all looking good up that way at the moment the insect hatch has been good and the fish are very active late in the afternoons.
