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
