Daytime fishing has generally been the best with the evenings and night time fishing a little slow. Bead head nymphs and woolly buggers fished slow and deep have been the best fish takers of late. There have been some nice rainbows being caught for those who put a bit of time in. With the cooler weather moving in the fishing should start improving.
There has been some good Browns around Providence, Anglers Reach Woolly buggers have been working well and black B/H Nymphs are keeping the big fish interested. have been getting good reports on the fly with intermediate and sinking lines have been doing well. Yes the reports have been slow and fisherman not doing so good so change what you are doing and get down to where the fish are you will find the results a lot better on a sinking line.
Best wet flies are woolly buggers, B/H Nymphs, woolly worms, Fuzzy’s
Best areas have been Anglers Reach, Providence, Remember the fishing is hard and I’m doing my best to let you know where there biting. at the moment I’m getting reports from Providence, Anglers Reach Buckenderra and Rushes, Seven gates are a little slow but some people are finding them and doing well the key is walk till you find them.
TROLLING AND SPINNING
Jindabyne:- . Trolling has been doing ok most people are getting the fish down deep with diving minnow and trolling slow with Tassie Devils
The quality of some of the fish has been superb with real football like condition. Best spots to troll have been poo bay, Creel Bay, Kangaroo Bay, the bank between Sid's and Kalkite and close to the township.
spinning from the banks with Blades have been getting some good rainbows and browns.
trolling and spinning have picked up in the last week with the cooler weather moving in.

The 6lb brown was caught by Ian trolling in Wianui Bay on Tassie 114, Ginga Niga on Anzay day at about 11am.
The 1 ½ lb rainbow was caught trolling by Stuart in Rushes Bay Saturday morning on Tassie 115, Rusty’s Banana at about 9am.
The 4 ¼ lb brown by Ian trolling by Ian in Wianui Bay on Tassie 115, Rusty’s Banana on Anzay day at about 11am.
Very nice fish in excellent condition. Pretty slow going but worth the reward.

Eucumbene Buckenderra has been going well again with Tassie Devils and sting Lures things are starting to pick up.
Tassie Devils and sting Lures have been working very well in the early hours out deep.
Most of the fish being caught have been rainbows but there is always the chance of a brown.
Small Attack minnows have accounted for several fish for one group while Blades have been great for another boat.
Most of the fisherman are getting down deep with down riggers or lead weights with good results not much has change in the lures selection.

JINDABYNE & EUCUMBENE.... WORMS ARE THE STANDOUT BAIT AT THE MOMENT
Reports have continued to be great with fish being taken on worms and power bait. Worms under a bubble have been working very well also Power bait is working well.
in the last week good reports have been coming in with worms under a bubble with about a 9foot lead from the bubble.
Seven Gates, Dam wall and Buckenderra, Anglers Reach and Old Adaminaby in Eucumbene. Worms have been the stand out bait at the moment Kenny Cain from Berridale has been fishing with worms at Buckenderra he has been getting some good rainbows and brown.
Jindabyne reports have been a little slow but the fishing should keep improving with the cooler conditions. Creel bay, Sid’s, Hatchery would be well worth a look at the moment.
don't forget if your bubble fishing try some flies it works very well.
Craig’s Night time, Nymphs, woolly buggers
Fishing has picked up over the last few weeks the water temperature is dropping there has been no real pattern on times but what I can tell you is that when they are catching them it usually is only for 1 - 2 hours and then they go quite again.
Wainui bay has been doing alright in the morning where as the Middlingbank arm has been in the afternoon. The size and quality of the trout has been fantastic very healthy looking up to 7lb.
Trolling with yellow wing Tassie devils has been great as well as with Frog Pattern Kwikfish. Even throwing a line in with Power bait lime twist and sherbet burst has been good with the kids and flies I have heard mud eye patterns are still doing the job.
I have attached a photo of a nice one caught with Frog Pattern Kwikfish.
Happy fishing everyone.....
