Fishing Report Update 15th October 2014:  Print this report Print friendly version



                                                                               2014
Snowy Mountains Trout Festival | Trout Fishing - Home Page




 


ACT Inflatable Lifejacket Services will be available to service inflatable lifejackets from Saturday the 1st November until Wednesday morning the 5th November for those that have not had their jackets serviced prior to the Trout Festival. I should also have some MARLIN Atlantic Manual jackets for sale at a show special price of just $85 each. The RRP of this jacket is $139. I have attached a picture of the style of jacket and if anyone comes to Buckenderra I will be setting up my Marquee as is in the photo near the boat ramp. My boat will be on display with the Kapten Boat Collars fitted for those that would like to have that extra stability. You can come for a quick run if so desired. Looking forward to catching up with some old acquaintances again. I can do a loan of jackets in the mornings and change over in the afternoons.

Remember all rivers are running a little faster the weekend so get them Nymphs down.
 
TANTANGARA RIVER
Reports were ok with rainbows and brown moving up and down most parts off the river well worth a look this weekend after all that rain.
All other rivers around the snowy mountains are fishing well so now the weather is getting better it’s time to start looking.
Don’t forget the Monaro rivers are all running well and they all should have fish so it’s time to get out there.

Lake Eucumbene is looking good with all that rain things will Improve at the moment the water is running in everywhere the lake is up over the grass and the fish are moving.

Lake Jindabyne things are looking good over on the west side off the lake there has been plenty off browns in close and out wide polaroiding around the lake has been great with good results coming in remember early mornings are the best.
Still getting good reports on rainbows in the lake big and small. Things are early yet and the best is yet to happen once we get more insects and mudeyes moving around Jindy will be good this year.  

 
 
 
 
 
Hi Mick,

Popped down on the weekend and ducked out for a fish on sunday arvo at the lake had the whole place to myself. Spotted a big brown taking dragon flies close to the thistles. I tried damsel patterns and a lot of other tricks but, eventually got him to eat a fuzzy he went 57cm one of my best fish from the lake on fly. Pic attached. Lots like you had a good day on the thredbo! Cheers, Marc Howard

Bait fishing Eucumbene has been really good in places Seven gates, Rushes, middlingbank all on worms not many fish have been taking the Power bait at the moment but if the rainbow do come on things will change yes they will come on soon there has been some good reports off rainbows moving around out wide and some have been close with some lucky fishermen getting them. Overall the bait fishing has been good but remember only down at the bottom end off the lake only.
Good reports from the locals up at Tantangara with the bait fishing again all on worms good reports off rainbows and browns but the rainbows would not touch the power bait?
Over at Jindabyne things have been ok on the power bait and worms the best thing about jindy is the rainbows are nice and fat and the browns are full off yabbies and there on the bite.
Overall the bait fishing is good on all lakes.
