Hello all,

Here is the overview of the hatchery works over the last few weeks;

All our eggs for the 17-18 stocking season have been laid down and the trap has been taken out as of the 30th August. 

Although the spawning run started late due toa lack of water and rain events, the Browns ran really well, with 2247 individuals recorded before the trap was taken out, and more still in the system near the hatchery. 400000 eggs have been laid down at Gaden , with another 600000 set aside for Dutton Hatchery. 

We have about 300,000 wild RT eggs laid down for the Jindabyne and Eucumbene allocation, and 800,000 eggs from our 2+ and 3+ broodstock, which have all been mixed with wild males. The trapped Rainbow count for the year was 366 individuals, with many more seen after the trap was taken out.

About 25000 rainbow trout eggs were collected from Hughes and Tolbar creeks in the Eucumbene system on the 31st August. Once hatched, these fish will act as a genetic variation for the Jindabyne system, and future broodstock.

The findings from the coded wire tagging program were as follows;

Hughes Ck- total R/T collected 229 including 6 tagged 2 false detection's due to fish hooks
Tolbar Ck total R/T collected 102 including 1 tagged 
Hatchery collected 366 Rainbow trout from the Thredbo River, with a total of 26 fish tagged and 4 false detection's due to fish hooks etc. These tagged fish were from 3 year classes.

All unwanted 2+ 3+ rainbow  trout broodstock (230 individuals) have been released into Lake Jindabyne with an elastomer implant (pink) inserted near the left eye(please see attached photo). 

Brook Trout and Atlantic Salmon have just started to hatch, with the brown hatchlings running a bit late due to the late trapping season.

If anyone would like any further information please don't hesitate to contact me on the details below.

Regards, 
Mitch

FLY FISHING RIVERS
Well not long now before the season gets up and running things are looking pretty good in all rivers up high and down low around the Monaro most rivers are running well.
Thredbo river has had a good year with the browns and rainbows spawning so things are looking up this year on that river. Over at Eucumbene river things are much the same river is up and looking fresh and cool rainbows are spawning the browns are back in the lake.
So overall things are looking up so lets hope everyone has a great time on the opening and remember lets all practice catch and release we all need to look after these rivers and keep them clean last years most fishers did a great job so lets keep it up well done fishers.
 
 
 
FLY FISHING LAKE EUCUMBENE
Well winter has gone and spring has come but you would think it’s still winter yes it’s bloody cold and windy the lake in still dropping but the fish are still active and taking flies close to the shore line so if you can put up with the wind and snow you will get fish.
Overall it has been good the rainbows and browns are still on the chew it’s the weather that’s stopping most fishers but the diehards are doing well, Woolly Buggers, Mrs Simpsons and Woolly Worms are the best flies with a slow retrieve.
Yes the lake is dropping but the fishing is still good lets hope it starts to rise soon??? I really think the lake is going to fire this year with some good rainbows and browns but that all depends on the big water suckers and we all know who they are!!! Fingers crossed.
 
 
FLY FISHING JINDABYNE
Thing are doing ok at Jindabyne with some good reports coming from the western side and over at Kalkite, With the Thredbo river running well and full off fish this might be a turning point for this lake so lets hope this happens I’m looking forward to fishing this lake this year as we all know it can be one of the best lakes around to fish.
 
 
SPINNING BOTH LAKES
Spinning has been at it’s best this winter with good reports coming from both lake.
Most spinners have been getting good fish on tassie devils and blades and plastics so if you are a keen fisher get out there on them cold windy days and have a go you will b reworded with some good fish.
Don’t forget to try the new BULLET LURES I’m very Surprised how well they work.

Eddo Rocko Mooro, with some nice fish on plastics
 
 
BAIT FISHING BOTH LAKES
Bait fishing has been the same all winter just amazing fish have been smashing the worms all winter and still going well power bait is doing ok but it’s the worms that are working the best
Most areas are fishing well on both lakes you just need to get out there wind snow or sunshine it’s worth it.
 
 
LAKE EUCUMBENE TROLLING AND SPINNING
Well what a great winter it has been the spinning and trolling has been at it’s best.
The trolling has been good from braemer bay down to seven gates with tassies and blades doing the work most colours are doing the job.
Spinning has been at it’s best with plastics and minnows best days are cloudy and windy days if the sun is out go to the deeper waters overall it’s been great from the top end to the bottom end of the lake.
