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:

FLYFISHING JINABYNE
Fishing around the lake has picked up in most places around Jindy with some good results coming form the western side, Snowy arm, Hatchery bay, Snowline caravan park and Hay shed bay.
Polarizing around these areas are starting to pick up with the browns but remember go small Nymphs or Buzzers have been the pick most fish are very spooky after coming back from the rivers so go slow and keep low.
best times are from day brake till around 9am any later things will get hard early is the go!!
If you are starting late you are best going around to the east side off the lake to the deeper waters and the sun behind your back Jindy east back to the dam wall would be my pick.
Late in the afternoons start using the bigger flies Woolly Buggers, Mrs Simpsons, Fuzzy’s, Woolly Worms.
Overall Jindabyne has really picked up and is starting to fish well on all counts.




 

Lake Eucumbene:-  

Fly fishing has been picking up down the bottom end off the lake around Buckenderra, Frying Pan, Seven gates, yes you will have to work for

them but if you put the time in you will get good results.

Unlike Jindy the fishing is a little harder but rewording the browns are in good condition and the rainbows are small, big,  med, and the signs

are looking good with the rainbows this year.

With the rainbows the reports have been good with the fishers catching some real crackers and in good condition so by all counts the rainbows should be back this year. the reports have been good up the Eucumbene river with the rainbow going up and as time goes by they should be in full swing by mid August only time will tell i will be going up after August to have a look myself I’ll let you know how things are going.

Remember the browns are coming back into the lake they should start moving closer to the shoreline so stay low use small flies. 




 

LAKE JINDABYNE BAIT FISHING 

 

Bait fishing around Jindabyne has been good with results coming in from most parts off the lake overall the worms have been the pick with some nice browns and rainbows coming out on the power bait the lime twist and lemon have been picking up some good rainbows.
Best areas are poo bay, blow the L.J.H and around at Hatchery bay.
Overall the worm fishing has been at it’s best so if you are heading up that way things are looking up fishing is good for most off the day.
 

 

 

 





LAKE EUCUMBENE BAIT FISHING

Bait fishing is getting better as each week goes by with some really good results coming from top to bottom.
Buckenderra has been good on the worms and power bait but the worms are the pick off the baits.
Frying Pan is doing well on the worms and seven gates is going well on the power bait and worms.
Up at the Dam wall and Braemer bay  the fishing is at it’s best with good reports off rainbows on the worms all rainbows over the 40cm mark.
Overall Braemer bay has been the best place to go bait fishing with Buckenderra not to far behind.
Best Bait, Worms, Worms, Worms 







 

 


 
TROLLING EUCUMBENE..
 
 
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 badly 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!
 


TROLLING TANTANGARA
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. 

          


TROLLING JINDABYNE

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
