LAKE EUCUMBENE FLY FISHING.
Well the rain has finally turned up in the last week we have had over 4 inches around and above
the lake we are just starting to get reports on the rainbows moving around Seven gates and
frying pan and over at Rushes bay let’s hope this is the start of good things to come. 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
we are getting. Best reports ..Seven gates, Rushes, Anglers Reach, dam wal. Best wet flies are..
woolly buggers, woolly worms, fuzzys. Best dry flies are.. Red tags, Stimulators, best trying
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
*Remember that from the 1st of May the size and bag limit changes in the Eucumbene and Thredbo Rivers. From May 1 you may only keep ONE fish OVER 50cms per day in these waters. Fisheries will be very active this season in these waters so make sure you stick to these rules and have your fishing licence with you while fishing.
THREDBO RIVER things are starting to look good with fish starting to move about with all that freshwater few good rainbows around paddy's corner and down below the bridge won't be long till the brown start going when they do we will let you know.
EUCUMBENE RIVER much the same as the Thredbo water is running well with plenty of action blow all the runs best flies in both rivers have been the two Nymphs set up get to the bottom.
good reports coming from providence up to the tree line. looks like things are starting to happen in both rivers remember take your time look the fish are there you just need to slow down.
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.
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.
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!!!
