Now the lake is starting to drop the fishing is starting to change the earlier you get out the better the fishing with some really good results most trollers have been getting rainbows.
Around 6am slow the trolling speed down start moving out into the deeper waters keep the mono on just slow down this is when you will start getting the browns.
Best areas are frying pan, Rushes, Middling Bank, seven gates, Wainui bay, Brookwood Bay.
Most Tassie’s have been good try the Stings in the mornings
Peter at Braemar with a fishing report week ending Feb 12th.
Once again it was a mixed bag this past week with trolling picking up to begin with and then dropping off as the week progressed, Bob Hall, Blowie and Trevor made a flying visit and did OK to start with, hooking into a lot of fish only to see them get off, interstingly this was a common theme at the weekend with many anglers experiencing the same thing, #10 and # 106 attracting the most attention.
Bait fishing continues to be the standout with mudeyes still the preferred bait, the Dodsworth clan caught a brace of rainbows at the front of the Park once again and also had a little bit of luck with live yabbies, best times appear to be mid to late afternoon right now.
The flyfishing has its moments, Mathew from Jindabyne did well once again using weighted nymphs during the day which accounted for some very nice Browns again dispelling theories about mornings and evenings being best, Les Dirou, Peter Ranyard and Tony McDonnell all managed a fish on fly, their first visit to Braemar proving to be successful, Craigs Nightime accounting for the largest Brown which went 2300gms early one evening.
Pictured below is Les Dirou with his 2300gms Brown, Peter Ranyard with his 963 Rainbow and Tony Mc Donnell with his 1906gms Brown.
Still some houses and cabins available during February at reduced rates, so come to Braemar and tackle those legendary Big Un’s.
Well jindy has Improved over the last few weeks with some really good results coming in . As Eucumbene get up early the fishing is at its best.
When you start hooking up start doing a few loops do not just move on go around hit the same spot a few times you will realise that’s the way you troll at jindy with better results.
Tassie’s, Blades, Minnows are the best lures.
BAIT FISHING ON BOTH LAKES HAS BEEN GREAT
