gday all,just a bit of an updated report,Eucumbene 46.35% rising,Jindabyne 86.12% rising,Tantangarra 42.14% .Eucumbene has been a little tuffer than previous weeks,with mixed weather conditions from one day to the next making anglers change approach nearly each time they venture out.overcast days and low light periods during dawn and dusk being the most productive.Fish are beginning to looking up and responding to dry fly and mudeyes fished close to the top.flat line trolling has been very good over the last week with plenty of anglers bagging out after a few hours.Jindabyne is a real mystery bag and is fishing very well on its day,i fished east jindy with an intermediate line ,pulling tandem buggers up and over the rocks from the depths and got 4 fish up to 4lbs in under 2 hours,but went back the next day and struggled to find a fish.reports of good fish over kalkite flats in newly covered ground are coming in to lure and mudeye fishos.powerbait is still accounting for fish around wollondibby inlet.Tantangarra is looking mint and fishing close to the edge in amongst the tussocks is almost a certainty to connect to 1 of its lovely wild trout.bait fishing in all areas has been fruitful but concentrating on deeper areas but still close to the edge on the brighter sunnier days has been very good.Thredbo river is still producing the best trout in several seasons,and the eucy river has also been living up to its name with very nice fish. tight lines and have an awesome new year!

JINDABYNE LAKE TROLLING
Not many reports over the Christmas brake but I’m pretty sure thing will change once all the water skies have gone.
The lake is nice and high with plenty of reports coming in so if your looking for somewhere to go this would be the place fishing most of the day and into the night is going well.
