FLY FISHING LAKE EUCUMBENE

 
Fly fishing has slowed down a little in places but if you take the time and look you will find them and the tip is in the bait report go where the bait fishermen are going the fish are there!!
Start using the larger flies and start slowing down on the retrieve let that flie sink a little.
Best time are 9am till about 4pm but the fish have been coming on around mid day mostly rainbows
Best flie’s Woolly Buggers, Fuzzy’s, Bushy Horror, Large Nymphs,
If you have any patient’s try a large dry with a nymph dropper let it drift.
 
Best areas are Middleing Bank, Buckenderra, Seven Gates,
 
 
FLY FISHING JINDABYNE
Jindabyne can be one of the hardest place to fly fish at times but if you but the time in you will be rewarded well. at this time off year don’t look for the fish cast cast cast look for structure are the lake ( Rocks, Trees, Stumps, Weed ) use a slow retrieve.
At the moment we have been getting some good reports again look at the bait reports to where the fish are that helps.
Best flie’s are Woolly Buggers, Mrs Simpsons, Jindy Buggers, Woolly Worms
Best tip i love fishing around Curiosity Rocks, Edwards Bay, Colorado Point

  




TROLLING LAKE EUCUMBENE
 
Again the lake is starting to drop but it hasn’t stopped the fish smashing the lures all reports are coming from the bottom end of the lake in close and out wide Middleing Bank, Seven Gates, Rushes Bay, Braemer Bay.
Now the weather is cooler most trollers are fishing most off the day early late it doesn’t matter just rug up.
best lures are Tassie Devils, Blades, Minnows and some Stump Jumpers, King Cobras yellow wings
Overall it’s still fishing well and the days have been great.
 




 
TROLLING LAKE JINDABYNE
 
Like Eucumbene the lake is dropping but it hasn’t stopped the fish best lures have been Tassies, Blades, Minnows
Best areas are down towards the dam wall, East Jindy, Edwards Bay, Hatchery Bay , Kalkite.
Things are starting to look good around the lake with some good reports coming in most reports are coming in from the top end with the browns and down around Jindabyne good reports with rainbows around Hatchery bay, Edwards Bay and around the Islands.
This lake can be one off the best lakes to fish in winter and it’s looking pretty good at the moment.



 

BAIT FISHING IS STILL GOING GREAT
 
 
BAIT FISHING EUCUMBENE LAKE
The lake is dropping but the fishing is still at it’s best on bait
Bait fishing is still at it’s best with good reports coming from Middle bank, Buckenderra, Braemer Bay
Best bait is worms and power bait
Best times 10am till around 3.30pm good or bad days fishing is great
Reports have been fish are still moving around close and out in the deeper waters looking for worms in close and out deeper for the power bait.
Overall Middleing bank has been the spot to fish.
Just in the last few days Seven gates has been picking up with some good rainbows and browns all on power bait
 
 
BAIT FISHING JINDABYNE
Again the lake is dropping but the bait fishing is going well
Best areas are Kalkite, Poo Bay, Hatchery Bay, Waste point and around the Caravan park.
Best bait Power Bait and Worms
Not sure what’s going on with this lake in summer it was very hard to fish but now it’s fishing well maybe the cooler waters are doing the job but it’s great to see things are starting to happen  love this lake when it’s on.
If you are after some brookies and some good ones try around Curiosity rocks up in the arm fishing well!!
