Rivers:- Well the Rain has come and all rivers are running well. Fishing on most off rivers has been good best reports have been from the Thredbo up high around Thredbo town and higher down around the ski tube and little Thredbo has been good with some good browns and rainbow below the runs and into the deeper holes. Most fishers have been keeping away from the river over the Christmas holidays but the ones that have been hitting them have had a good time and now the holidays have finished things should get back to normal. Overall the fishing is great the rivers are running well and the fish are on the bite. Remember all other rivers are fishing well up that way the Moonbah, Snowy River, up above Island bend, go exploring that’s what fly fishing is all about new ground you might just find that fishing hole you have been looking for!!

Well all reports coming from Eucumbene have been good the higher you go the better the fishing. Best areas are Sawyers, Kiandra. Up at Tantangara much the same fishing is good in places best areas are Murrumbidgee above and below the dam wall don’t forget about all the small streams above Tangtangara. Best flies are Adams Parachute, Royal Wulff, Std Nymphs, Caddis.
Are fishing well with a number off good fish feeding late in the afternoons and early mornings but at the moment all rivers are running high after all the rain so wait a few days things will get better.




Fishing around Jindy has slowed down but I’m sure things will Improve now with the Thredbo river running high and most bays are full of food so by the weekend things are looking good. Again most wet flies are working well.





Fishing around the lake has been good with some good browns and rainbows most fish have been taking wets form 3am till 6am then from 6pm till around 10pm.
Best areas have been frying pan, Braemer Bay, Rushes, Middling bank, Not many reports have been coming from the top end off the lake but after all that rain things should Improve up around Anglers and Providence. overall the fishing is great some fishers will beg to differ fish at the right time you will get results. Muddler patterns have been the big Improver and Fuzzy’s, woollie worms and STD Nymphs are working well and after all that rain try fishing around the gully’s or old creek beds.

Fishing at Braemer Park .

Just wish to thank Peter at the park for his attention to customer service and assisting in all aspects of promoting the park , we will be back . Also a huge thank you to Peter Giles guru and friend for sharing his vast knowledge of all methods of fishing , also birdlife or almost anything to do with the outdoors,we had a great time .
Also enjoyed seeing the photo of my friend Neil and myself with the marvellous trout we were able take back to family and friends. Kind regards to all Warren K S Davison .


Howdy Michael,
Peter from Braemar here with a report of fishing activity during the Christmas week.
Thankfully Santa did his job, most people and groups got amongst the fish over the holiday weekend and results were very good, all methods proved successful at some stage or another with mudeyes being the standout once again, so collect your mudeyes from Mick and the gang at Alpine Angler on your way through to make sure you are prepared.
Bubble float rigs and drifting mudeyes from the boat or bank have been very successful indeed, it seems there is about to be a massive hatch in the area around the Park and close by, a couple of warm nights and the mudeyes will be off and the fish know it, they are feverishly looking for mudeyes now.
The trolling people have also done well with the darker colours doing great early morning, # 28 once again being the pick with # 114 Ginja Ninja and # 82 Pink Bomber also accounting for some great fish.
The fly-fishing has finally turned the corner it seems with fish readily taking the more traditional summer flies during the day and savaging muddler minnow and mudeye patterns after dark, it seems we may be in for a period of consistent fishing on all methods, chunky cheese remains the best powerbait and worms have also caught a few fish after rain run off.
Best Fish of the week went to Jake Brown from Drouin with a 3005 gms Brown caught on Mudeye, several very large Browns have been sighted over the past few days and we have weighed in 14 fish over 2kg up until Tuesday with many fish in the 1.5kg range, even the Rainbows are getting up to the kilo mark now on a regular basis with a 1623 gms specimen caught by Bernard Cameron on a fuzzy wuzzy.
We still have a couple of cabins for hire through January at very good rates so call us for a deal and get amongst the famous “big un’s” at Braemar.
Pictured below is Jake Brown with his 3005 gms Brown, Jessie Major with his 2800 gms Brown, Vicki O’Hara with her nice rainbow caught trolling, her daughter Kimberly with a nice fat Brown caught on the same outing, Rob Heath with his rainbow, Venny with a sample of his recent catches trolling and David Perkins with a sample of his recent trolling efforts, well done to everyone.



Trolling Eucumbene has been fishing well with good results
coming from most parts off the lake rainbows, browns all in good condition

FRYING PAN, Small tassie devils, Blades,

MIDDLING BANK, Small tassies 7g, Tassies 13.5g 97,80,55,28
WAINUI BAY, Rapalas, Minnows, Celta’s
 Overall the lake has been fishing well with good numbers coming in rainbows and browns thing will only get better once the mudeye’s come on Christmas is looking good.



Trolling around Jindabyne has been good with most reports coming from the top end  off the lake with the browns and rainbow. Most tassie devils have been doing well along with the strike pro blades and Rapalas
 up around Kalkite the brookies and rainbows have been on the bite and as you go down towards jindy the brown start taking over most over the 4lb mark. Overall the trolling is going well and thing will only get better as the weather warms up. To me jindabyne is the place to be at the moment and I’m sure once the mudeye’s start the trolling will only get better.
Tassie Devils 118,117,125,26,4, Crick hoppers,
Blades, Rapala’s,


Jindabyne has been good on both ends of the lake most fish have been taking worms early in the days with the mudeye’s doing the job in the afternoons. Best areas have been hay shed bay, hatchery bay, Kalkite and down at havens bay towards the dam wall. Most reports have been good with most fish in the larger bays as i said worms and mudeye’s are the go.
Eucumbene is fishing great with good numbers coming in everywhere still the worms and mudeye’s are doing a lot better then the power bait.
Best areas are Middling bank, Frying Pan, seven gates, with Braemar bay doing the best on the mudeye’s.
Overall the worms and mudeye’s are going well sorry great!! The fishing is really good and it’s only going to get better by Christmas the lake is high and looking great.
Best Bait worms and mudeye’s
