Headlines: The return of some cooler weather has done wonders for the local lakes and rivers. Water temps in the lakes have dropped significantly and the fish are on the chew in a big way.

Rivers:- Continues to be excellent with reasonable flows throught the mountain streams. Fishing has been quite good though polaroiding has been tougher with the overcast conditions of late.
Dry fly fishing has been good right through the day with some nice browns to be found in the Eucumbene and Thredbo. Dry flies to use at the moment are small emergers like Klinkhamers, Blue wing olive parachutes, attractors like Wullfs and Stimulators, along with beetles and hoppers.
A nymph suspended under the dry during the day is a good method to use, but a dry at dusk will have best results.
Other rivers to fish are the Moonbah, Snowy, Gungarlin, and a few other smaller high country creeks.
Lake Eucumbene:- The lake has cooled enough for the fish to start working the edges again. Mudeye patterns on dark are producing some nice fish. The bottom end of the lake is the best bet though there have been a few reports from the Adaminaby and Anglers Reach area also.
Mudeyes have been hatching in numbers and the fish are starting to feed on them. The Rainbows in the lake still in excellent condition and are fighting hard.
Areas to look at are Seven gates, Buckenderra, Braemar, Cobrabald, Coppermine, Collingwood, Yens.
Lake Jindabyne:- No Reports from Jindabyne again this week. There should be a few mudeyes around to attract fish around the edges.
Lake Tantangara :- No reports from Tantangara.
Trolling and Spinning
We now have Sting Cobras back in stock.
Our Rapala Minnow indent has just arrived with trout patterns from 1cm to 11cm.
New Bushy's Stiffy Devilfish Vibes are in stock.
Eucumbene:- Trolling has been good with downrigging, and lead core still producing more fish. Top water and shallow run lures are catching a few more now with the improved water temp.
Trout pattern minnows in Rapalas, Attacks, RMG Scorpions, Rebels, and Alex lures are great lures to try. Try some of the larger lures down deep to search out the bigger browns.
Spinning off the bank with Celtas, Tassies, Snowy Minnows will pull a few quality fish this week.
