EUCUMBENE FLY LAKE AND RIVER
Now that lake Eucumbene  is dropping thing have slowed up in most places up the top end off the lake but with that the fishing has picked up down around seven gates, Buckenderra, Middling bank, Rushes and frying pan.
In the last few days there has been a few storms with some good action after so do not let the dropping off the lake turn you of things are still going well late in the afternoons and early mornings.
Best flies have been woolly buggers, Nymphs, Muddlers, Mrs Simpsons.
Overall the fishing is still going well on the lake with some good rainbows and browns getting caught. My best place would be rushes and frying pan in the afternoons.
Up at Eucumbene river things have Improved with the resent rains most fishers are getting good fish late in the afternoons with some good fish taking bead head nymphs in the deeper waters Up at Kiandra most fish have been taking dry’s and nymphs.
Best dry’s have been Royal Wulffs and hopper patterns
Best wets have been Nymphs in the runs down into the deeper waters.
All waters are running well and clear


            
                                                   

 







JINDABYNE FLY LAKE AND RIVER
With the lake staying at a good level Jindabyne is starting to pick up on the fly with some good results coming from the west side late in the afternoons and early mornings Woolly buggers and Muddlers have been the pick.
Over on the Eastern side fishing has been at its best early in the mornings Jindy East and Kalkite have been the pick.
Best flies have been Muddlers and Mrs Simpsons late in the evenings larger woolly buggers.
Jindabyne seems to be fishing better with the sun behind your back if that helps!!
Up on the Thredbo river thing have been a little quiet down the bottom end with better results coming from up around the diggings ski tube and Thredbo town itself.
Best flies have been red tags, caddis, Nymphs again best times have been early mornings and late afternoons though the day bead head nymphs are the go.

 
 



EUCUMBENE TROLLING
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.






JINDABYNE TROLLING
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
Jindabyne has been good on both ends of the lake most fish have been taking worms early in the days with the mudeye’s doing the job in the afternoons. Best areas have been hay shed bay, hatchery bay, Kalkite and down at havens bay towards the dam wall. Most reports have been good with most fish in the larger bays as i said worms and mudeye’s are the go.
 



Eucumbene
is fishing great with good numbers coming in everywhere still the worms and mudeye’s are doing a lot better then the power bait.
Best areas are Middling bank, Frying Pan, seven gates, with Braemar bay doing the best on the mudeye’s.
Overall the worms and mudeye’s are going well sorry great!! The fishing is really good and it’s only going to get better by Christmas the lake is high and looking great.
Best Bait worms and mudeye’s
