Trolling has been really good with good reports coming in from top to bottom good reports off rainbows and browns with the lake dropping now things might change well that’s what i thought would happen but with the reports coming in things are still going well the rainbows and browns are still taking the lures. But remember when travelling up that way watch the weather and the snow reports thing can get really bad up that way. But overall the fishing is good.
Eucumbene has started to fish well with the Trolling some good reports from Buckenderra and rushes bay have been doing well on Tassie Devils and Minnows.
Most off the trolling has been around 7 am till around 4 pm trolling about 30 meters from the bank and out in the deeper waters with some good results coming in mostly browns with a few rainbows been reported.
Overall the trolling has picked up yes the weather has been bad but looks like it’s doing the tick with the browns moving around move and the rainbows coming in a little closer.
Getting up higher around yens and old Adaminaby things have been picking up with the rainbows and browns most off the fish have been in really good shape. With the brown coming back from the rivers and the rainbows starting to go up the rivers this is where you should start picking up both browns and rainbow so this would be a good time to slow down and find the deeper channels for better results.
Best areas are Yens, Buckenderra, Seven gates, Old Adaminaby and Anglers Reach.
As i said the weather has been bad but the fishing is good!
A mate and myself were at Buckenderra last week up from Melbourne for our annual Winter Eucumbene fishing trip. We trolled the lake throughout the week with very good success. We caught a range of fish, both browns and rainbows, trolling Tassie’s. However, on Friday afternoon we landed two awesome fish. One was a 6.19lb brown and the other a 9.47lb, 69cm brown (see attached pics).
Well Jindy has been fishing well the rainbows are great and the browns are in good condition as well with all this good weather who needs the snow bring the boat up get on the lake and just sit back and relax and wait for that stike!!!
Most fishers are trolling up around Kalkite and over at waste point and over at Kalkite west with good results.
Most trolling is done about 20 to 30 meters out from shore using tassies and minnows but at the moment i think they would take anything try using the Nat Vibrations lures.
Try not to go fast why you're trolling just at a nice speed walking pace do not be scared to let some line out 30 to 40 meters.
Remember if it’s a good bright day move out into the deeper waters follow the fish slow it down get deeper.
Best places are Kalkite, waste point, Kalkite west, and from the Snow liner up to hatchery bay
BAIT FISHING JINDABYNE
Bait fishing has been at it’s best at Jindy with good reports coming in from most parts off the lake. Best bait is the power bait and grubs you can put them both together or just fish them separately there both fishing well.
Good reports from Kalkite, East Jindy, Hatchery bay, waste point, Jindy point, Curiosity rocks, Clay pits.
Best bait is Power Bait most colours and the worms are working well.
