FISHING REPORT

Autumn

The lake level is in its usual pre winter decline, approximately at 64%, rising and falling marginally with rainfall in the upper alpine regions, making good fishing and access around most of the lake edge.

The spawning season is now in effect, fishing on the Thredbo and Snowy rivers and Wollondibby inlet and creek and Widows creek has seen some 10lb plus fish being caught. Brood stock that have been released from the hatchery are staying in small schools and cruising the lake edge early morning up until late morning, and middle to late afternoon with before temperatures drop too much in the evening. Lake surface temperature is coldest at sunrise. There are a lot of plate-sized brown and rainbow trout being caught in the Thredbo River and in the lake.

 

Casting at the bank from a boat can produce some good catches around Kalkite and the upper lake reigions. Bait fishing with worms and Powerbait is still producing results later in the day, with a light float rig around weedy bays, or drifting unweighted worms off deeper lake edges.

Weighted nymphs, such as dark green, black & seal fur brown are the go due to minimal insect life on the surface, euro-nymphing has seen good results in deeper river areas. Fish the faster runs early in the morning and late in the day. Stocking up on egg patterns should be a priority, before the river close on the June long weekend.


Surface trolling in the lake at sunrise and sunset can be good with Tassie Devils, gold flash with bold red and black patterns, as well as yellow winged tassies. Downriggers, snap weights and leadlines can be fished all day, we have full lake map of both Lake Jindabyne & Eucumbene with marked trolling runs available in store.

Our local casting flies are doing well in the evening, twitching them along near inlets around the lake have seen some good catches.

We have some new minnows and bent minnows from D&A lures available in really good colours for lake fishing or deeper river areas.

We have everything you will need in the shop for sale and hire and the advice is free, at the Snowline Centre, just past the Thredbo turnoff.

Kind Regards,

Brian & Stuart
