PRESS RELEASE
 
Monaro Acclimatisation Society calls a meeting on le access to the Eucumbene River Brown Trout Spawning Run at Denison
 
On Wednesday 30 March 2016 the Monaro Acclimatisation Society Inc (MAS) hosted a meeting with anglers and representatives from Snowy Hydro, Kosciuszko National Park, NSW Fisheries, NSW Maritime and the Lake Eucumbene Chamber of Commerce to try and resolve the issue of continuing environmental degradation of the Eucumbene River banks at the Denison Campground near Providence Portal, NSW.
 
Steve Samuels, President of the MAS said his organisation had received many calls from anglers who were concerned that the unlimited vehicle access to the river during the annual brown trout spawning run posed a threat to the river and the spawning fish. He also said that other authorities such as Snowy Hydro and NSW Fisheries had received similar calls.
 
The brown trout spawning run in the Eucumbene River has gained significant popularity over the last few years. Last year vehicle counts indicated that up to 140 vehicles per day were accessing the river bank at Denison, crossing the river with drivers often cutting new tracks in an effort to reach more secluded water. Kosciuszko national park authorities were also concerned over the continued illegal vehicle access to the Park from the Denison access point.
 
Mr Samuels said that if something was not done now to limit the damage, he was fearful that authorities would take a hardline approach in the future that might make access to this fabulous fishing event even harder.
 
The meeting discussed all the issues and it was clear that all present wanted to see angler participation on the river continue, but the uncontrolled vehicle access could no longer be tolerated due to the damage being done.
 
The obvious thing to do Mr Samuels said was to develop a car park away from the river where anglers could park in safety. This would stop the damage being done, but would also allow anglers to access the river with relative ease. While it may be a bit of a walk, he said, that is better than losing this fishery either through the spawning run being “loved to death” or a harsher measure later on when things were much worse.
 
The meeting members identified that if vehicles were to be directed to a designated parking area it would have to be built above the high water mark of the lake so that it did not become a navigation hazard during higher lake levels.
 
Mr Samuels said that the meeting resolved to progress the issue. While it is not possible to do anything for this year’s run, he said, the intention was to have the matter resolved for the 2017 run.
 
Mr Samuels said that he hoped all anglers would recognize the need to protect the river because without it remaining in pristine condition it places the brown trout spawning run in jeopardy. While there may be a bit of a walk in the future, he said, the benefits to anglers and the fish will outweigh any inconvenience.

Hi
Even though it was very wet, we spent long hours on lake Jindabyne's waste point on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Brown was very active on hard body loures and soft plastics. Powerbait and Gulp was effective all day for rainbows.
Ivica landed a 60.5cm Brown trout on J7 Rapala Brown Trout. Check out the kiss & release on Instagram @edgedjuric
Branko scored a beautiful 42cm Brook trout.
Joey's 54cm brown with the J7 Rapala Brown Trout still in its mouth was the bigger of 3 over the past 3 days. The third one hit a soft plastic.

 

 

 

 

Peter at Braemar with a fishing report

Finally the Lake level has stabilized a bit with a much slower draw down recently, only a slight variation to last week and it is currently hovering around 37%, there are still wide expanses of mud and soft clay so anglers need to be extra careful when traversing the banks and launching their boats.

The boat launching area at Braemar is very very slippery and boggy, this area should be avoided until further notice, if you get stuck there is no one on hand to help you !!!!!!

As advised in previous reports, the access road through the Park and down to the water will be closed for a period of approximately 5 weeks, any vehicles or visitors coming to the Park must report to the shop before entering the Park, heavy machinery and road equipment will have complete access to this area and there is a strong possibility you will not be able to get out, there are no suitable alternate routes to the water apart from the Snowy Hydro track at the back of the Park which is suitable for pedestrian access only, drive to the water at your own risk.

The fishing was reasonably good last week, there were several visiting groups from Victoria and locally, the trolling was very good on the windy days, with one group of 4 boats catching 53 fish in 6 hours, there were quite a few throw backs amongst the catch but several nice rainbows up to 1220 gms and a brown of 1300 gms, 9 fish were kept and the rest released between the 7 anglers.

Best tassies were # 56 # 28 and # 94.

Best Bait worms



Even though it was very wet, we spent long hours on lake Jindabyne's waste point on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Brown was very active on hard body loures and soft plastics. Powerbait and Gulp was effective all day for rainbows.
Ivica landed a 60.5cm Brown trout on J7 Rapala Brown Trout. Check out the kiss & release on Instagram @edgedjuric

EUCUMBENE LAKE TROLLING

Lake Eucumbene is still dropping but the fishing has been ok most trollers have been doing good up around anglers reach with some good rainbows and browns. Tassie’s have been going well and Rapala’s, Over at Braemer Bay thing are going well with some good browns most rainbows have been caught early in the morning again Tassie’s have been the pick. Buckenderra has been a little quiet but as we know thing can change quickly at this place so still worth trying. At frying pan things are going ok the rainbows are still hanging around so this place is worth a try early mornings are the best.
Best lures , Tassie Devils, Rapalas, 


JINDABYNE LAKE TROLLING

Trolling at Jindabyne is still ok with good reports coming from Kalkite, Poo Bay, Hayshed Bay,Soak Bay and Sids Bay. Again early morning have been the best and as the day get on start moving out to the deeper waters. Best lures are, Tassie’s, Stings, Rapalas  
                                                                        
 
 
 
 
 
 


 
 
 
BAIT FISHING
 
 
Jindabyne has been ok with some good reports coming from Kalkite, wast point, poo bay, Hatchery bay if you are fishing after 10 am go find the deeper water and try the worm under a bubble and power bait with a two meter lead don’t go out there doing the same old thing try something different longer leads and worms with a bubble float that will keep the yabbies away from your bait. Mud eye's are working well all over the lake But we are finding them hard to get. Yes we have mud eye's but running out very quickly sorry we are not taking any orders for mud eye's.
 
Overall the fishing is ok you just need to find the right time and spot and that would be late afternoons and in the deeper bays.
 
 

 












Eucumbene
is fishing a little slower then Jindabyne at the moment as we all know it's dropping at a fast rate so keep out of the bays and go look for some deeper water and if you are going to fish bays look for the gully’s after the rain last night you should find some fish holding up in these areas. Worm are still working ok but like Jindy try the worm under a bubble float and if you going to use power bait you will need about a half of a meter lead mud eye's are going well but at the moment we are finding them hard to get. Best bait Mud eye's. Again the fishing is ok you just need to look for the deeper bays and fish in the gully’s
