Howdy Michael, Peter from Braemar with a fishing report ending February

The weather played a big part in results once again with a huge
variation in conditions from day to day, hot and windy, cool and rainy
was the order of the week but there were some nice fish caught again.

The mudeyes haven't quite happened at Braemar but it seems the fish are
actively looking for them now, those anglers fishing mudeyes are doing
quite well on most outings either from the bank or from a boat weather
permitting, we have had some windy days which made conditions
challenging indeed, grasshoppers have also appeared in recent days, not
in big numbers but enough around to get the fish excited.

Fly fishing remains a guessing game, some days have been fantastic and
other days down right awful, fly's going well right at the moment are
any big bushy fly imitating a grasshopper and any mudeye pattern, John
Moyes from Warragul sighted a 2kg plus Brown cruising the edges this
past weekend, he could not be tempted to strike with any offering John
put in front of him, the Jindabyne boys once again raided Braemar for
very little results, plenty of smaller Rainbows taking anything offered
to them but generally action is slow for decent fish.

Trolling has also been a mixed bag with Peter Venables from Canberra
along with his mate Rod got amongst quite a few fish during the daytime
using tassie devils, the standout being # 61, most fish encountered were
in the 35cm to 45cm range, but again there were long periods of no
activity on their 3 days visit.








BAIT FISHING EUCUMBENE
Bait fishing is at it’s best at the moment with the mudeyes being the stand out bait best areas are Middling bank, Seven Gates, Rushes, Braemer Bay
Over at middling bank thing can’t get better with the mud eyes and worms both getting rainbows and browns.
At Buckenderra worms have been going well
Braemer bay mudeye’s are smashing the browns and rainbow along with the power bait,.
Seven gates mudeye’s and power bait
Rushes bay mudeye’s ,worms and power bait are going really well
