the lake has been dropping but it has not stopped the fish biting things are looking really good up that way with some good reports coming in up the top end with the browns being the ones on the chew.
 
Most fishers have been very quite about the flies they have on but I am sure it wouldn’t take long to work out!! again if you want fish at the right time you will get results.
 
 
Do not forget about the other lakes Guthega, Island Bend and all them little dams you drive past when heading up the mountains yes you can fish them and you will be very surprised.

On The Monaro all river are fishing well so it’s time to start exploring and try your luck rivers are running well and fishing well. (REMEMBER PRACTICE CATCH AND RELEASE IT’S FUN AND REWORDING)




Hi Mick

Here's a couple of shots of fish caught this last week on Eucumbene. Really awesome fishing there at the moment, fish we found were chasing midges, tadpoles, green and small black nymphs. We pretty much equal numbers of rainbows and browns. The rainbows are incredibly fit and fast, as you know!

Cheers

Peter

 

 

 
 

 

LAKE EUCUMBENE TROLLING

Trolling has been good in most places on the lake with reports coming from Braemer Bay, Buckenderra, Anglers Reach, Seven gates, Frying Pan but remember if you want fish go at the right times early mornings and late afternoons are the best times.
Over at Braemer Bay trolling Tassie devis, Blades, Rapala’s, King Cobras are all going well.
 

Hi there,
 
Last weekend my friend took me trout fishing, for the first time. We stopped off at your store, as my friend always drops in on his way into the mountains.
 
I have just started getting a feel for lures, and like the casting weight of blades. I bought a couple of them from you and we headed off to Angler's Reach.
 
It was a glarey hot day with a very strong wind. I was using braid with a mono leader and the braid was billowing widely with the wind. The wind blew dust, our hats, and even blew the camp chairs over. Hardly ideal conditions, as well as being in the middle of the day.
 
Harry quickly caught an undersized brown trout, then shortly afterwards an undersized rainbow. We were thrilled that the blades were getting results. I then walked a little further along the water's edge and caught my first ever brown trout. Not much of a fight but thankful that Harry had the net handy.
 
Thank you for selling me the silvery rainbow lure with 'cyber vibe'. After being an estuary fisherwoman, I'm now hooked on the mountains!

 

 

 

 

 

LAKE JINDABYNE TROLLING
jindy is fishing well on the troll with some good browns coming out, Over at Kalkite on the western side early mornings have been good with the rainbows down at hatchery bay trolling with rapala’s and blades have been working well on the browns out in the deeper waters trolling with the 26 gram Tassie Devils have been good on the browns and rainbows. Remember early morning fishing has been at it’s best so get on the water before daylight that’s when the fishing is at it’s best.
 
 
 
 
TANTANGARA LAKE
Things are still looking good up that way worth a look so if your heading that way call in on your way back we would love more reports thanks.






BAIT FISHING AT IT’S BEST
Bait fishing on lake Eucumbene has been at it’s best, Middling Bank, Frying Pan, Seven Gates, Buckenderra, Braemer Bay, Anglers Reach, Yens Bay
Mud eye’s, worms, Power Bait are going off at the moment with some really good fish being caught.
Best reports have been over at middling bank and rushes.
 
JINDABYNE BAIT FISHING
Has been ok in places but we are still needing more reports what we are hearing is the worms and power bait are going well on the western side of the lake.
