The Alpine Angler
Published by Rod Allen"
What a great Easter weekend we had up here in the snowies!!! The 3 main lakes,Euc,jindy and tantangarra all fired up for the holiday makers with exceptional weather and fishing to all methods from bank or boat.Scrubbies accounted for many fine captures around the lakes margins,mudeyes (if you can get your hands on them) are also as close to a sure thing as you can get in trout fishing,and your favourite Tassie devil or rapala trolled or cast getting just as much attention.Whilst we have missed out on rain during March,the rivers are in a fairly good state.The Euc around and above Sawyers through to Kiandra still offering good sight fishing to stream sized trout with the odd 3lber keeping you on your toes.Thredbo river is probably the pick of them at the present time especially in the lower sections with lots of eager fish taking the usual terrestrial bugs right through the day and turning a bit more selective as evening approaches and the mayfly and caddis become more prevalent.Ive found the choc brown klinkhammer to be an excellent fly or a bubble caddis pupa is my other choice.Moonbah river has also been great along its entire length from the diversion weir right up to its head waters,again,terrestrial bugs like hoppers and beetles are your go to fly on this little gem and trying a royal wulf when things get a bit tough seems to get them going again.Murrumbidgee has been a little quiet above the dam but below at yaouk still producing lots of action to fly and small spinners such as celtas.Working your way up to the gorge area is always enjoyable way to spend an arvo and very reliable.Id like to take this opportunity to congratulate every one on their captures and conduct and thank you for looking after and respecting the great snowy region over this easter break while still having a great time...well done!!!! tight lines










Mother and daughter out and about showing how it's done well done lady's












 







LAKE EUCUMBENE TROLLING

Tolling Eucumbene has been a little tuff lately with all these hot days but if you fish at the right time you will get the results.
Times to go out is before daylight to about 9am then start moving out into the deeper waters so get up early if you won’t the results!!
Over at braemer bay things are going well with the rainbows and browns, Tassie Devils, 4, 120, 124, S12
Seven Gates again early start, Tassie Devils , 121, 55, 67
Rushes Bay work the deeper bays work your way in then when going out work straight up the guts, Tassie Devils, 67, SD, y36, 82
Buckenderra things have been a little slow so at the moment you guess is as good as mine!! Maybe a little Information from Buckenderra would be nice!!
Anglers Reach reports are ok best fishing late in the afternoons till dark, Tassie Devils, 97, y94, y123
Old Adaminaby early start working the lures out about 30 meter from the bank with larger lures, Rapala 9, 11, 13 Spotted Dog and Rainbow, 9s and 7s in the jointed lures
Overall the lake is fishing ok at the right times

LAKE JINDABYNE TROLLING

Jindy has been doing well for the last few weeks with some really good fish come out.
Again this lake will fish at it’s best when you get out early and that’s about an hour before daylight using large lures Rapala 13,11,9 Rainbows, Browns, Spotted Dogs .
Best areas have been around the Islands and close to the shore line going up from the caravan park.
Best lures are Tassies, 121, 55, 82, 112, 120, Rapalas, Blades.







   

LAKE TANTANGARA TROLLING

As always this lake is still fishing well from top to bottom it’s still at a good level and there’s plenty of insect life so most trolling has been done at a faster pace and with good results.
 
 
 
 
BAIT FISHING EUCUMBENE
Bait fishing, things have Improved after all that hot weather and the worms have been the pick with good reports coming in from the bottom end of the lake.
Best areas are Buckenderra, Middling Bank, Rushes, Braemer Bay, Seven Gates,
Worms under a bubbles have been effective about 15 meters out and good results late in the afternoons on the bottom. 
Overall bait fish with worms have been the best bait .
