HEADLINES

We are getting a lot of feed back from the Seven Gates area about fires and rubbish left all over the place.  Please be mindful to take your rubbish with you and clean up after yourself.  Please be sure to carry your PFD & fishing licences as NSW Maritimes are out. Nsw fisheries inspectors are working the Snowy Mountains area during the peak holiday season. So remember if you do not have a current fishing licence and on your person you will be fined. So for the sake of 5 minutes do yourself a favour.

Maritime services are on the lakes, So make sure you water craft are up to par with current safety standards, if you are not sure contact Ph 13 12 56 or website:
www.maritime.nsw.gov.au

FLYFISHING JINABYNE
Most off the fishing around the bottom end off Jindabyne has been slow over the last week with few Reports coming in.
Up around the top end has been good with Kalkite doing the best most fisherman catching browns on Woolly Buggers Black, Olive and Mr Simpsons on a slow retrieve.
Over at the Snowy arm a few Brown and rainbows have been in close to the Banks and they are very Spooky so try some small Nymphs Black and Brown.
Jindy East has been doing ok in the afternoons with the sun in your face there has been a few fish again in Close. Better results with a steady retrieve and size 10 Woolly Buggers and Nymph black, Olive, brown








 

Lake Eucumbene:-  Fly fishing has been ok in most places off the lake with some good Rainbows starting to show up in most off the bays down on the bottom end off the lake. Again fish the same way as jiny and you will have a better time get that sun around you and on the water. The Fuzzy has been working good at a nice slow pace very slow when try a woolly bugger move them a little faster with a paws now and then.

Again try fishing in the gully’s there seems to be more activity around these areas.

Best areas are Buckenderra, Seven gates, Rushes bay, Middlinbank, 

best wet flies are woolly buggers, Mrs Simpsons, Fuzzys, 

most people don’t like fishing in winter to me this is a good time to be out there on a good day you will be surprised how good it can be!!!

TROLLING EUCUMBENE..

    
Eucumbene has started to fish well with the Trolling some good reports from Buckenderra and rushes bay have been doing well on Tassie Devils and Minnows.
Most off the trolling has been around 7 am till around 4 pm trolling about 30 meters from the bank and out in the deeper waters with some good results coming in mostly browns with a few rainbows been reported.
Overall the trolling has picked up yes the weather has been badly but looks like it’s doing the tick with the browns moving around move and the rainbows coming in a little closer.
Getting up higher around yens and old Adaminaby things have been picking up with the rainbows and browns most off the fish have been in really good shape. With the brown coming back from the rivers and the rainbows starting to go up the rivers this is where you should start picking up both browns and rainbow so this would be a good time to slow down and find the deeper channels for better results.
Best areas are Yens, Buckenderra, Seven gates, Old Adaminaby and Anglers Reach.
As i said the weather has been bad but the fishing is good!

TROLLING TANTANGARA

Trolling has been really good with good reports coming in from top to bottom good reports off rainbows and browns with the lake dropping now things might change well that’s what i thought would happen but with the reports coming in things are still going well the rainbows and browns are still taking the lures. But remember when travelling up that way watch the weather and the snow reports thing can get really bad up that way. But overall the fishing is good.

TROLLING JINDABYNE
Well Jindy has been fishing well the rainbows are great and the browns are in good condition as well with all this good weather who needs the snow bring the boat up get on the lake and just sit back and relax and wait for that stike!!!
Most fishers are trolling up around Kalkite and over at waste point and over at Kalkite west with good results.
Most trolling is done about 20 to 30 meters out from shore using tassies and minnows but at the moment i think they would take anything try using the Nat Vibrations lures.
Try not to go fast why you're trolling just at a nice speed walking pace do not be scared to let some line out 30 to 40 meters.
Remember if it’s a good bright day move out into the deeper waters follow the fish slow it down get deeper.
 
Best places are Kalkite, waste point, Kalkite west, and from the Snow liner up to hatchery bay


Hi I was on your website and saw that it said to send in our fish photos. I am 13 and I was fishing with my poppy at seven gates at Eucumbene when we caught these fish. The two larger fish were 73cm in length and the one I am holding weighed 9 pound. We caught them on chunky cheese powerbait and corn. Just thought I should send them in.
Thanks Ethan Montagnino



 
BAIT FISHING JINDABYNE
Bait fishing has been at it’s best at Jindy with good reports coming in from most parts off the lake. Best bait is the power bait and grubs you can put them both together or just fish them separately there both fishing well.
Good reports from Kalkite, East Jindy, Hatchery bay, waste point, Jindy point, Curiosity rocks, Clay pits.
Best bait is Power Bait most colours and the worms are working well.
