Now the lake is starting to drop the fishing is starting to change the earlier you get out the better the fishing with some really good results most trollers have been getting rainbows.
Around 6am slow the trolling speed down start moving out into the deeper waters keep the mono on just slow down this is when you will start getting the browns.
Best areas are frying pan, Rushes, Middling Bank, seven gates, Wainui bay, Brookwood Bay.
Most Tassie’s have been good try the Stings in the mornings
Well jindy has Improved over the last few weeks with some really good results coming in . As Eucumbene get up early the fishing is at its best.
When you start hooking up start doing a few loops do not just move on go around hit the same spot a few times you will realise that’s the way you troll at jindy with better results.
Tassie’s, Blades, Minnows are the best lures.
Peter from Braemar here with a fishing report
It was a mixed week of fishing and weather with storms and rain hindering fishers ability to get out and about for a couple of days, leading up to the mid week inclement weather the fishing had been a bit quiet with the occassional fish coming in on mudeyes and trolling, the days after the weather had cleared results were a bit more like what you would expect for this time of year with flyfishing and mudeye baitfishers doing best.
Rob Ukeman and his son paddled aound the trees in their canoe and did quite well dropping a mudeye into the depths, their best fish was a 2kg Brown caught early evening just in front of the Park, Peter Giles again led the flyfishing brigade with a few early afternoon Rainbows on buzzers and nymphs, sometimes only being out on his sojourn for a half hour or so, some rainbows have been caught in the hottest part of the day dispelling myths that fish will not feed in hot weather, some contradictions are still occuring though with early and late evening rises not happening on some nights and sometimes the fish are just not there for any method used, right now it is best described as frustrating and inconsistent, again, not unusual for January.
Wayne Fox and Steve Smart from Gippsland caught 4 beautiful Browns about the 1kg mark trolling around Teal Island on # 106 Tribal Tassies and Jeff Davis caught some nice Rainbows on a Craigs Nightime on 2 different occassions and pictured below is Max Gengalacki with his nice rainbow caught on mudeyes just in front of the Park.
Best Tassies this week were # 106 and Y106, # 4 # 28 and # 104.
Best bait once again mudeys.
Most consistent fly’s have been small nymphs, beetles and streamers with Muddler Minnow/ Cordiluid patterns doing best after dark.
BAIT FISHING ON BOTH LAKES HAS BEEN GREAT
