Most fly fishers are doing well late in the afternoons right into the night with fuzzys, woolly buggers, Craig’s and Muddlers. As we all know this is the time the mud eyes are coming on and the fishing is at it’s best once the sun goes down.

Peter from Braemar with a report for the week ending February 26th 2017.

Some cooler weather saw fishing improve a bit over the past week which
was very welcome indeed, interestingly most catches are still being had
during the day, all methods proved successful for a change so we are
hoping that continues on.

There was a big drop in the Lake level during the week and that usually
upsets the fish, however this time around it had little effect with
trollers doing OK to begin with and then the fly people doing well later
in the week.

Tassie Devils accounted for some fine catches up to 1.5kg and
predominantly Browns, best colours were the discontinued # 61 and # 28
in this part of the Lake, the Jensen crew did OK on Rapala's and the
Betts crew had no luck at all trolling.

Bait fishing with mudeyes is still the most reliable form right now and
will only get better as we head into March and April which is
traditionally mudeye time at Braemar, Daryl Suckley and Max Gengalacki
had some fine sessions during the week off the bank while Tom Ambrose
caught over 20 Rainbows tying up to trees, most of them were smaller
fish around the 20cm mark but provided good action, Frank Derby led the
way for the fly fishing brigade early in the week with great action on
the windier days but Tony Tribisani got the fish of the week on a woolly
worm just on dark on a calm afternoon.

Mudeyes are a bit hard to get right now so make sure you order them
through Michael at the Alpine Angler and pick them up on your way so you
don't miss out on the anticipated action.

Pictured are Tony Tribisani with his 2333gms Brown caught on Fly, Daryl
Suckley with his 1875 gms Brown caught on Mudeye.






BAIT FISHING EUCUMBENE

Bait fishing is still at it's best with good reports coming in from Braemer, Middling Bank, rushes, Anglers Reach, Old Adaminaby and Buckenderra.
Best bait is still mudeye's and worms.
Mudeye's are starting to move and the fish are starting to get active Overall the bait fishing is great.
