Just a quick report....

What a great month November has been so far. Cool nights and water surface temps,rising lakes,coupled with nice warm days has produced excellent fishing in lakes Eucumbene, Jindabyne and Tantangarra.Flat line trolling bullets,rapala spotted dogs,strike pro flatz minnows and the ever reliable Tassie devil accounting for large numbers of fish.Spin fishing from the muddier edges has been popular all year with great results coming on overcast or windy days.7 gates,Buckenderra,and white rocks inlet on Euc while Kalkite,hatchery bay and waste point on jindy are prime easy to access areas for this style of fishing.Mudeyes have made a welcome return and the trout are loving them,early mornings or around dusk floating this nymphal stage of the dragonfly around timber or boulders being very successful.Scrubbies and powerbaits still picking up nice fish for those who prefer their sleep and wiuld rather casually fish through the day.Fly fishing has been terrific with wet fly on the tadpole/frog feeders around the soaks and we even had a couple of midge and termite hatches which got the attention of the resident trout and had them up and on the top.Rivers and streams are now a great option,with good run off from snow melt ensuring healthy flows and hatches.Spin fishos have been fairing well with #1 and 2 celtas and the 3cm bullet.Fish are looking up on majority of the smaller tributries,but it still pays to run a nymph dropper under your dry,especially on the larger rivers such as Euc and Thredbo...Damsel,snowflake caddis and mayfly are the most prolific aquatic insect at the moment and having an array of good imitations in your kit is handy for the fussier rising fish..Low rainfall has not done any of our lower lying rivers and creeks of the monaro any favours.While some creeks are still safe to fish without causing any detrimental impact,others have not faired so well.Be mindfull of these fragile creeks and a quick assesment should be taken of water qualities and temps before making a decision to fish or to move on to somewhere more suitable.in the meantime lets all pray for rain! ..for any more info,reports,enquiries,top up on gear or just to talk fishing,call us on 02 64525539 or drop in to the shop at 647 snowy mountains hwy Cooma.
