FLY FISHING RIVERS


Most rivers are running well and fishing well with the warmer weather here now things are really starting to pick up.
 
On the Monaro streams things are starting to pick with all streams fishing great but remember if you are fishing these streams we do Recommend catch and release (Please)!!
Up around Jindabyne all rivers have calm down now and the fishing is good with all rivers running well and clear worth a look. Up higher in the mountains Thredbo, Perisher, all river are going well and don’t forget about all the small dams around the area again worth a look all fishing well. Good reports coming from Kiandra fishing the runs with a nymph and letting it run into the deeper holes with some good rainbows sitting in the holes “working well”.
Remember if you can practice catch and release on all rivers that way you can come back next year knowing that fish will be a bigger and better fish a photo can tell many stories!!
 
 



FLY FISHING LAKE EUCUMBENE
Fly fishing has been up and down on the lake that’s to do with the weather wind and more wind yes I’ve about had it as well!!
But things are starting to warm up and the insects are starting to come out along with the mudeye’s so it wont be long now till the action starts.
At the moment the nymphs, woolly buggers, minnows and woolly worms are the best wet flies to have.
Best areas are
Middling Bank, Braemer Bay, Frying pan and Seven gates. Overall it’s a little slow on the fly but thing will change once the weather comes good.
 





LAKE EUCUMBENE TROLLING
 
Lake Eucumbene has been fishing well on the troll with some good rainbows and browns coming out most trolling has been done early morning and late afternoons  with good results. Best lures have been Tassie Devils and King Cobras, The warmer weather ist starting to come so things should make the fishing a lot better
 
BRAEMER BAY, Tassie devils 13 grams, 74, 52, 108,,,, 26 grams, 93, 94, 55, 121,,,, 20 grams, PP, 123, 221, 4
 

COPPERMINE BAY, Tassie devils and King Cobras all yellow wing are going good
 

MIDDLING BANK, Tassie devils,13 grams, 74, 52, PP, 108,,, King Cobras , 57y, 74y, 65y, Rainbow,,,,Blades and rapalas
 

OLD ADAMINABY, ANGLERS REACH, Tassie devils 13 grams, 74, 36y, 108 and most yellow wings in Tassie’s and King Cobras
 
If Trolling the deeper waters the large Tassie Devils in 26 grams are working really well
 
Overall the fishing has been good on most parts of the lake mornings and afternoons


 
 
 
Peter from Braemar with a report for the period ending Nov 17th 2016.
 
Well finally some nice weather to talk about for a change, nice balmy days and mild nights during the past few days have increased anglers enthusiasm but right now the fish are not co-operating too well, bait fishing has dropped off, Alan Beveridge from Victoria did well early week getting amongst some nice Browns in the 1.3kg range using worms but even he has struggled since the nice settled weather came in, Alan also managed a couple of fish on fly late afternoon and early evening with best results coming from a muddler minnow.
 
Tony Fubelli has struggled as well even though he has tried several methods including fly, lure casting and bait, Tony has encountered quite a few larger Browns late morning lure casting from the bank but has been unable to land any of them, the DE Jaeger group has enjoyed a flying start to their trip landing good quality Browns on mudeye and trolling up to 2kg and Bruce Pinder from Loch in Victoria has also struggled to make an impact fly fishing.
 
Conditions are very favourable right now so it is a bit of a puzzle as to why the fish are so elusive , with  warmer days and mild nights one would expect that the insect activity would increase and excite the fish, but this has not happened yet at Braemar, we all remain positive.

 




the northcoast schoolies contingent  - just thought i would send a pick of the 10 pounder







BAIT FISHING
Bait fishing is great on both lakes on worms power bait and mudeye’s
At the moment fishing anywhere on the lakes you will get results not sure on what bait is doing it’s best the results are coming in with mudeye’s, worms, power bait.
So if you are wanting bait for the trout fest you best start thinking about booking your mudeye’s and worms next week I’m sure they wont last long. 

BAIT IN STOCK MUDEYE’S,WORMS,POWERBAIT
