Peter from Braemar with  a fishing report for the period January 30th 2017.

Well its been tough going for most anglers this past couple of weeks, the
weather has been hot and sunny day after day which has affected the fishing
somewhat, all methods have struggled on occasions and anglers frustration
levels increased with the temps, however some very nice fish have been
caught every now and then so things are not a total disaster.

The Lake level is still reducing but has slowed up this past couple of weeks
which is of course good news.

Here at Braemar the fly anglers have done OK, but there have been extended
periods of absolutely no action, most mornings have been calm and sunny,
many fish rising to beetles and midge, hooking them has been the challenge
though with so many insects to choose from, lots of small rainbows rising
with the occasional decent fish moving in for short periods of about 30
minutes, flies that have been reasonable are Klink hammers, midge ball,
spent spinners and small nymphs in the size 14 range, once it is dark the
more traditional flies have been reasonably successful such as the Hamills
Killer, Mrs Simpson and Woolly Buggers, however there has been long bouts of
no activity which has frustrated anglers.

Bait fishing with mudeyes remains the most effective method, both under a
bubble float or drifting near trees and deeper holes, the first mudeye hatch
may not be that far away with some immature spider mudeyes now appearing
along the edges, traditionally at Braemar the week either side of the full
moon in February and March is mudeye time and this year should be no
different, the fish will actively feed early mornings with late afternoons
and into the evenings best, so keep that in mind.

Trolling has been slow on most days, deep trolling with downriggers has been
relatively successful but again there are many hours of nothingness mixed up
amongst the fish and this is likely to continue while the weather remains
warm and sunny.

Pictured is Tony Fubelli with his 1770 gms Brown caught last week on a
muddler minnow just on dark.

 



TROLLING LAKE EUCUMBENE
Trolling has been good around Buckenderra, Seven Gates, Rushes, Braemer Bay with some good browns and a few rainbows.
Best times have been early mornings 5am, till 9am, late afternoons from 5pm till dark.
Remember the lake is warming up so go deep stay away form the shore line, If your have trouble getting down into the deeper waters we do have the tassie devils in 26 grams.

Best Lures are, Tassie Devil 13.5 grams 37, 16, 15, 105, KG, 130, 313
20 grams, 48, 29, 121, 96, 4
26 grams, 126, 125, 63, 4, 26
Rapalas, Spotted Dog
Blades, Silver, Gold, Brown
Black Magic Minnows

Trolling flies have been going well late in the afternoons Mrs Simpsons, Bushy Horror and Craig Nightime.

Overall the trolling has been good you just need to be out there at the right time




BAIT FISHING EUCUMBENE
