Monthly Fishing Report
Oct - November
As the weather warms with day temperatures above 15 deg C and lake surface temperature from 12 deg C and the rivers and streams re-opening for fishing from the start of the October long weekend, many fishing opportunities are available.
Surface trolling at sunrise and sunset and deeper trolling all day with clip weights or 3-4 colours of leadline can produce good catches of brown and rainbow trout. You can also try trolling a large wet fly behind an Action Disc, a very effective way to give a wet fly a vibrating motion. Bait fishing with mudeyes, worms and/or Powerbait all day from the lake edges can also produce good fish.
Spinning the fast runs in the rivers and streams all day is a lot of fun, or get up early to spin the lake edges with small hard body lures or small tassie devils.
Dry fly fishing the streams will improve with warmer weather and the resultant insect hatches. Late evening wet fly fishing with nymphs as nymph runs occur in the rivers at this time of year.
You can still polaroid the lake edges in October with soft plastic lures and weighted casting flies, yabby patterns are the most effective.
Enjoy the warmer days and nights and have fun fishing for the elusive trout. We have everything you will need to give it a go in the shop at the Snowline Center just past the Thredbo turnoff.
