With The bitterness of the winter weather almost behind us, now is a great time to start stalking the edges of the one of the many lakes in the region. The days are getting longer and warmer, and the fish will begin to move closer to the shoreline in search of protein. From now until October the lakes will become very productive for the sight fisher. Small flies i.e. unweighted nymphs, small wooly buggers, and even a well presented dry fly are going to be the order of the day. Taking a stealthy approach when walking the edges will help you not “spook” the fish. Be aware that they will very close to shore and searching out the weed beds. Lake Jindabyne is quite low at the moment with the weed beds almost exposed, so finding the fish right now should be a little easier. Just remember if you do spot a fish take your time to set yourself up for the cast as you will probably only get one shot, so make it count!
Don’t forget to come on in to High Country Outfitters before you head out so we can point you in the right direction and you can stock up on any gear you might need.
