Jindabyne has been great in the evenings and there is plenty of good polaroiding opportunities when the weather is good. Searching with a woolly bugger will produce a few nice ones or just wander the bank looking for fish and cast a small wet or nymph at any fish found cruising. There is still a heap of weed in many of the bays that is drawing the fish in to the food that it holds. Best areas are the snowy arm, kalkite, waste point, poo bay, Best fly_s woolly bugger black, B/H nymphs, remember pick your days and the fishing should be good start walking and you will see some good brown in close.
The lake has been a little better in the Anglers Reach area with a few good rainbows and browns being taken in the evening. The fish are not coming in for very long, but there have been some good browns and rainbows being caught. Most are around the 900gm to 1 kg mark. Fish quality has been excellent. There are still enough of those fat browns around to keep most anglers happy. If you are fishing out off a boat there have been good fish caught close to the shore. Fishing will be very slow in the next few weeks if you dont pick the right spots. So start looking for some good drop-offs and weedy areas and count down your fly to see where the fish are sitting this is working very well.
Best flies have been woolly buggers, mountain shrimp, fuzzy wuzzy, woolly worms and beadhead nymphs Best areas have been Seven Gates, Cemetary point, Anglers Reach and Buckenderra
A good number of fish cruising the edges early and late at present so well worth a look.
Best flys are B/H Nymph and wooly buggers. If anyone has any trolling reports off tantangara
Or bait fishing just send them in thanks.
Trolling and Spinning
Jindabyne has produced few reports this week. There are still some good fish to be caught in Jinde but early starts are the key to catching them especially when the weather is super calm. some nice fish taken trolling around the outside of the weed beds in many of the bays. Blade lures and stiffy lures would do well on the big browns as will the rainbow squidies lures Rapala X-Raps and Jointed minnows are working as well. Still good reports of good fish have been court around the snowy arm and Kalkite.
Tassie Devils 48, Y36, Y48, Y82, Y90, YFR, 26, PP, strike pro blades, Rainbow Squidgies x-raps, jointed rapalas
Trolling has been good overall with many lure types producing fish. Leadcore in deeper water has been a good producer over the last two weeks. . Trout pattern minnows in strike pro blades, Attacks, RMG Scorpions, Rebels, and rainbow squidgies are great lures to try. Try some of the larger merlin lures down deep to search out the bigger browns. few boys from Canberra had a good weekend at buckenderra trolling minnow lures and blades.
Tassie Devils 27, Y36, YFR, 55, Y48, strike pro blades , x-raps , Jointed rapalas
Eucumbene bait fishing
The bait fishing in Eucumbene has been very good with Powerbait taking some good catches. Worms under a bubble float have come into their own now with the cooler weather Rainbows are loving Powerbait and Scrubbies in the Buckenderra arm and also Seven Gates with many anglers catching their bags. Lime twist, Fl.Orange, chunky chartreuse, Rainbow candy has been the popular favourite this week. Best areas are Seven Gates, Buckenderra, Cobrabald, Wangrabelle, Homeleigh Bay and the Dam wall.
Buckenderra has been fishing really well with worm and power bait best report was 30 fish in one night on worms.
Best tip worms under a bubble float and power bait 1 meter long lead

Hello everyone not a bad weekend @ Buckenderra the weather got a little wild and woolly but the fishing was still great. With the strong winds there wasn't to much trolling going on but of the bank fantastic.
We had some of the guys casting in the shallows with rapalla's and caught 3 nice brown all around 2kg weight a@ 48,55 & 58cm long they were happy men.
We also had Shorty catch some nice rainbows with squidgies and blades.
As for the powerbait men it was business as usual most bagging out over the weekend the popular colours chunky cheese,orange and chunky chartreus.
Finally to James couldn't get in his boat over the weekend because of the wind done well casting from the bank... rainbows averaging around 40cm a little light in weight but happy with his catch when the wind died down this morning he took the boat out started trolling with tassie devil and caught a beautiful brown 60cm long weighing in at 2.7kg...Awesome work James.
