Fishing Reports, Fly Fishing Shop, What's Happening

Winter is here.

There’s snow on the hills and frost on the ground!! The trout rivers and streams have closed after a spectacular season. Now it’s time to focus on the lakes.

Lake Jindabyne has seen a lot of water being let out into the lower Snowy river this week with some big environmental releases, with that we should see the lake level drop a little bit. Hopefully getting us a little closer to the weed beds and fish. Fishing the edges around drop-offs will be the best way to find some good fish, get your fly down deep and slowly retrieve a small Wooly Bugger or Black Nymph and hold on. The rainy windier days have proven to be the best times to get out and fish. The sunnier days have been very still and making the fishing a little tough leaving the angler very exposed to the fish making them quite wary to venture in close. evenings and mornings during these days will increase your chances of hooking up.

Lake Eucumbene has been a little quiet lately with boat anglers having a little more success than the shore based angler. Although I have heard of a few reasonable fish being caught over the past couple of days from some fly-fishers prospecting with small nymphs and smaller “killer” style flies.

Both lakes will continue to improve over the coming weeks as the edges really start cooling off. If your coming down for a snow holiday anytime soon don’t forget to pack a rod and experience winter trout fishing in one of our lakes that are open to fish all-year round.

Happy Fishing Folks!!!
