FLY FISHING LAKE EUCUMBENE & JINDABYNE 

Eucumbene.. the fishing is good and is Improving every week now we are starting to see more and more rainbows. Remember if you can find the right fly “Small” you will have some good fishing
Reports from Eucumbene have been good with many fishermen coming in saying the rainbow are starting to come in closer best areas are Middling Bank, Rushes, seven gates, Yens Bay. We are still getting reports that the fish are moving around everywhere and rising but there still hard to catch remember small is the key and a slow retrieve then once it does get dark then go larger in the flies. Fuzzy’s, woolly buggers , Mrs Simpsons, Black Muddlers overall the fly fishing has been good with most fishermen have good results.
Remember just don’t sand there casting try Bead head Nymphs count down to about 20 then retrieve after awhile go to 15 and so on look for the gully’s or where there has been water running in when it has been raining remember if the fish are not coming in you will have to go to them. It works for me!! Remember try something different don’t do the same old thing every time your out there.
Best Places are Yens Bay, frying Pan, Rushes
Best Dry flies are wulffs, Humpy’s, red Tags, 
Best wet flies are Nymphs, Buzzers, Stick caddis, Fuzzys, woolly buggers, Muddlers
 

 

   
Jindabyne
Now all the activity have finished on the lake at Jindy thing will start to Improve with in a few days we are starting to get good reports around hatchery bay and up around sides bay and Kalkite most off the fishing has been late in the afternoons with some good hatches going on. if you have a boat a good place to try is over on the park side off Kalkite but remember to have some good lights on your boat you need to stay there into the dark.
Best wet flies are Fuzzys, Craig’s, Mrs Simpsons, Blak woolly buggers
Best dry flies are Wulffs, Red Tags, Adams, try a Buzzer under them works well 
                          
                                           




TANTANGARA
Is fishing well much the same as Eucumbene and looking a treat yes the rainbow and brown are active the lake is rising and by the reports thing are starting to happen. Good reports off fish moving all around the lake but the action has been up around the top end off the lake.
Most fish are taking Woolly buggers Olive and black day and night in the afternoons the black bead head Nymphs have been the pick with a long slow retrieve.  




ALL RIVERS ARE FISHING MUCH THE SAME REMEMBER EARLY MORNINGS OR LATE AFTERNOONS ARE THE BEST TIMES

THREDBO RIVER
Is fishing good with all the reports coming in most fishermen are happy still getting reports on rainbows in good numbers that’s a big Improvement form last year.
Most fish are taking dry Flies Adams Parachute, Royal wulff, sparkle pupa, Klinhammers.
Best places are paddy’s corner, bridge down, ski tube, Thredbo township.






EUCUMBENE RIVER
fishing is still going well on most parts off the river but your best fishing is late in the afternoons with plenty off fish rising the water is still cool and running well.
Best dry flies are wulff’s, klinkhammers, Nymphs, Humpy’s
Remember the best fishing will be late in the afternoons and it is fishing well.



TANTANGARA,
Reports have been good up in the river most fly fishermen have been getting browns and just a few rainbows but it’s all looking good up that way at the moment the insect hatch has been good and the fish are very active late in the afternoons. Nymph fishing with a strike indicator has been the best way to fish or a Royal wulff and Nymph.
