Young Jack out and about in the snowy mountains.












 

MONARO RIVERS
Well the rain has come and most rivers around the Monaro flowing so this means we all cane get back to doing what we like most!!
On the Bobundra River things are looking great with a good flush out on Wednesday this should bring the fish to life.
The Maclaughlin River much the same water flow is good and the fishing has Improved.
Other rivers didn’t get any rain so lets hope things change soon, As they say if it’s not flowing best leave it be.
So if your thinking about fishing the Bobundra and the Maclaughlin thing are looking up and there’s plenty of freshwater
Over at Dalgety on the snowy river fishing has been good up and down from the town. This river can be a testing river for some fishers but if you fish it at the right time you will get great results best times early mornings or late afternoons.
 
EUCUMBENE RIVER
Eucumbene has been fishing better than expected with some good results coming from Kiandra up and down best flies are bead head nymphs running into the deeper holes.
With the dry flies red tags, Red Humpy’s, Caddis Nat and White,
Best results have been early mornings and late afternoons.
Down at providence fishing has been ok up to Denison with woolly buggers into the deep holes, If your after fish this is a great way to get them in the middle of the day.
Still the snowy mountains is getting smashed with hot weather so wear the right clothing and take plenty of water.
 
 
 
 

 

 
 
LAKE EUCUMBENE FLY FISHING
Lake Eucumbene 26%
Eucumbene has been up and down on the fly with all this hot weather most days have been around 35 degrees and the water temp up around 24 and 26 degrees.
So the best times for fishing have been early mornings before daylight and late into the afternoons well into the dark, using weighted flies woolly buggers, woolly worms, Nymphs,  and Intermediate line.
Dry fly fishing best times have been early morning with a nymph dropper this has been working only in the mornings. As the sun starts to rise and you can see the wind lane try to keep the fly just of it you only have a short time with this as the sun comes up it moves out quick.
Best areas have been Rushes, Seven Gates, Braemer Bay, Most other places have been quite.
Best flies stay on the wet better results
 
 
JINDABYNE FLY FISHING
Lake Jindabyne 83%
Jindabyne has it’s up’s and downs but again fish at the right times you will get results.
Over on the mountain side late in the afternoons have been great with some good rainbows starting to come up taking black muddlers and double woolly buggers
If your fishing in the mornings best using two woolly buggers or woolly worms with a Intermediate line this is working well.
Best areas are, Weston Shore Bay, Edwards Bay, Colorado Bay and around Widows Creek
Best flies, stay on the wet flies around jindy better results day and night
