The Alpine Angler

Published by Rod Allen · 


Those fresh nights of March and April has cooled the surface temps on Eucumbene,Jindabyne and Tantangara coupled with beautiful days that generate enough U.V to promote insect activity,making a recipee for some brilliant trout fishing.All methods are producing great fish,and its great to see the trout are finally putting some condition on prior to their reproductive journey up the rivers.Trolling the ever reliable Tassie in colours 4,96,112,Y63 and 126 or rapala spotted dog in F9 and F11,as well as Zerek Tango shad have seen anglers fill their bag limits.Spin fishos searching the lakes edge enjoying success with Bullets and vibes over the past month.Bait fishing is firing up too with many fine trout falling to Scrubbies on the bottom or drifted under a float and powerbait in sherbet,orange and chunky cheese collecting some great rainbows.Fly fishing is a mixed bag,using terrestial bugs such as hoppers,crickets and beetles blindly still worthy and providing good sport,whilst changing to a more specific emerger to match that afternoon hatch on dusk and tying on a spent spinner as your very last fly selection moments before dark putting smiles on those seeking dry fly glory.Otherwise stripping back large wets like buggers and simpsons is another fun way to find a trout.With Autumn comes strong wind,which may not be the most comfortable for us die hard trout fishos,but it certainly ticks a few boxes to get the fish to gain confidence to come in close,making them feel safe to venture into the dirty wind chopped shallows.Some of my most memorable days fishing has been on these nasty windy days in that dirty margin.All the rivers are low but cool with sublime clarity resulting in excellent but tricky sight fishing.Anything less than full stealth mode will most likely see spooked trout scurrying for cover before your fly even hits the water so a careful approach is best .Euc river around sawyers,thredbo above gaden and below ski tube,murrumbidgee above Tangy and swampy at geehi all offering great fishing..
Tight lines!







 











   

 

 
 
 
 
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 .
And don’t forget about the new bait we have in stock just ask the staff and they will be happy to show you.
