Its has been snowing for 24 hours in the mountains all the resorts look great.
Snow has been falling in Jindabyne most of the day its beautiful.
The mountains finally got a reasonable snowfall over the weekend and there has been a lot of snow guns operating this week with low minimum temperatures.
School holidays start soon so the resorts are busy getting ready for the influx of families who come up to enjoy this beautiful area. The fishing is still ok with Browns cruising the edges after spawning. The fine cloudless days are perfect for a walk along the edges looking for cruising fish, a small nymph or a Woolly Bugger will get their attention.
Dont forget to check out our specials page, we are stocktaking so more specials will be put up.
The fishing season for the rivers has now closed.
The Browns have been running well with a huge run on the Eucumbene and also a good run in the last couple of weeks on the Thredbo. The hatchery has all its numbers for Browns and I guess we wait to see what the Rainbow run will be like. The last 2 years have been quieter for the numbers of Rainbows moving up the rivers making it difficult for Fisheries to get the numbers in the hatchery.
The main focus now will be the Lakes for some winter fishing and only yesterday a local angler spotted some good fish cruising the edges of Lake Jindabyne. The calm sunny days are great for polaroiding but don’t forget a bit of wind will stir up the banks supplying food for the cruising fish. Woolly Buggers are a good searching pattern or small nymphs fished slowly.
Rug up and enjoy winter, Murray
