LAKE EUCUMBENE FLY FISHING. The fly fishing is still much the same as last week on the lakes
Most fly fishermen are retrieving the flies at a very slow pace woolly buggers, woolly worms, fuzzys,
Muddlers, and bead head tom Jones. Overall it seems like the fishing has picked up by the reports

them with a Nymph dropper

FLY FISHING JINDABYNE...

Jindabyne has been good and bad with some good reports coming in one day and the next bad
but with all these showers up high let’s hope things start to change. We still are getting some
good reports from Kalkite and Jindy east again on the woolly buggers and bead head Nymphs. 
Most fishermen are fishing late into the night with good results Mostly browns.
Best areas are Kalkite, East Jindy, Poo Bay
Best Dries are Stimulators, Royal Wulff, Red tags, Klinkhammers, Snowy hoppers

Yes most fly fishermen are doing it tuff at Jindabyne but that's
fishing put the time in you will get good results

         'LOOKS LIKE THE BROWNS ARE STARTING TO MOVE  '

THREDBO RIVER things are starting to look good with fish starting to move up
the river best place is below the bridge reports are coming in off good numbers
coming up.Best flies are bead head Nymphs two with split shot and the glow bug with a bead head Nymph above the bridge has been a little quiet but if you take your time and look you will see them coming out off the shadows.
So if anyone does get a good fish send your photos to
info@alpineangler.com.au




EUCUMBENE RIVER

are fishing the runs with good results again with two Nymphs and split shot or The glow bug and Nymph plus split shot remember if you are not getting to the
bottom you are not getting.
Remember the river is for everyone have patience and have a good time.

Bait Fishing Eucumbene and Jindabyne. bait fishing is picking up after all that rain worms are the stand out bait. 
Bait fishing has been picking up around most areas with the worms being the stand out bait. Just remember there’s no need to throw out to deep try to keep your worms close to the bank with the power bait make sure you only have a meter long lead and a small hook again not to deep most fish are in close.
Mudeyes have been hard to get and they will be for some time now but don’t worry the worms are working well.
Eucumbene Best places to fish are Seven gates, Rushes, frying pan, Anglers Reach, dam wall.
Jindabyne Best places to fish are Poo bay, Kalkite, east jindy, waste point and around the snowline caravan park.


Hi Michael,

We had a great Easter, there were lots of people about, and the weather was awesome (and there were a few nice chilly nights!!)
The fishing as you know has been tough going but it seems to have picked up over the weekend.
We have had some fantastic looking fish come through, and it’s been a great mix of browns and rainbows!
The rainbows seem to coming in now and a couple of kids caught 4 nice ones (around 40-48cm mark) using the red and black bumble bee Tassie devil
One guy caught a really nice brown on the bank using mudeyes. Came in at 59cm and weighed 2.825kg
Power bait has been quite successful (Chunky Cheese and Chartreuse) in landing some great fish also. The power bait and worm combo has worked a treat too.
A couple of fly fishers did really well using a gold bead head fuzzy wuzzy. They picked up 2 browns, one at 65cm weighing 3.3kg and the other at 60cm weighing 2.8kg.
Trolling also seems to be picking up over the last day or so with one group picking up 11 trout (again it was a great mix of browns and rainbows.)
Regards
Jana

TROLLING EUCUMBENE
Eucumbene has been up and down better results around buckenderra with most fishermen using Minnows and Tassie Devils.
Most boats are getting the fish out in the deeper waters using tassies numbers y36, y48, 80, s11, 29, 50
After all this rain thing are going to get better with the water cooling down with the rainbows moving in closer and the browns people are starting to get mixed bags of fish.
Anglers Reach has been picking up with some good browns taking sting lures and blades over at the dam wall things have been good spinning of the banks and trolling.
Overall the trolling has been good in most areas on the lake.

TROLLING JINDABYNE
Jindabyne has been a little quite at times but with all the rain trolling around the Thredbo river mouth should be the place to be with plenty of food washing down the river. Not a bad idea to start looking for all the wash areas around the lake this is where you will find more activity and more food.
Best lures have been tassies, stings, blades
If you are up that way fishing let us know how you go!!!
