browns, rainbows, brooks, salmon. Most fishers have been using woolly buggers and Nymphs with good results.
Fishing over on the western side off the lake has been the best area to go with plenty off food washing into the lake and the fish are coming in a lot closer so don’t go looking for them get the flies out and start bring them back in slowly if you're using bead heads let them drop the retrieve.
LAKE EUCUMBENE FLY
Fishing has been great in all areas over the lake in the past three weeks with the rainbows on the come back and the browns still in good condition.

Peter from Braemar with a report from the week ending November 21st.
Some nice fish were caught during the week on all methods which was a pleasant surprise, previous weeks had seen one method superior to others but the trend over the past few days was that no matter what you preferred the fish co-operated.
We had some very heavy rain and then hot and windy conditions during the week so opportunities were somewhat limited, but when you were able to get out and about the fish were there, not in huge numbers but just enough to keep the anglers satisfied and interested.
Best fish of the week went to Elke Stadler who managed a beautiful Brown of 2567 gms caught on powerbait, well done Elke who is quite often prepared to walk big distances when fishing so she deserves the results when they come, Vicki Dodsworth also did well by catching a couple of nice Rainbows as did her brother in law Anthony using worms, it was Anthony’s first fish in quite a while !!!!!!!!!!
Mitchell Wright once again picked up a nice Brown of 2002 gms with a live yabby, thats is Mitchells second 2kg plus Brown in as many outings.
Vinny Ford put in some long hours for a couple of nice Browns casting various flies to cruising Browns , the best being 2035 gms, Julius, along with his visiting Hungarian friends Peter and Zoltz managed a couple of nice Browns as well casting nymphs and streamers with Peter getting one 58cm, they also had their very first encounter with a snake, its hard to imagine that people visiting from other countries have never seen a snake before, Ken Plumb fished the Gunghalin for very mixed results, whilst the scenery was spectacular the fishing proved to be very tough with the River running clear and low, smallish Browns and Rainbows readily rose to the small dries but few were landed.
Ian Stock and Vic Lomas managed a couple of nice fish each on their trips out using mudeyes and Graham Thoms and his wife had a super morning landing 6 great Rainbows using powerbait before the weather turned nasty, all in all it was an interesting week, best flies were small dries, beetles and Zulu’s and the ever reliable Wooly Bugger late, best tazzies were #112, Y46 and #28 and best bait were worms and mudeyes.
Pictured below Mitchell Wright with his 2002 gms Brown, Vicki Dodsworth with her 866 gms Rainbow and Anthony Dodworth with his 886 Rainbow and the Boys from Belgrave group shot from their recent trip to Braemar.
|Gerran from Belgrave FC caught a 2.7 kg at Breamer Bay (footy ground)
LAKE JINDABYNE TROLLING
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.
