The river continues to improve as the water temp continues to climb upwards. The lower sections around the airport flats have seen the most activity this week. Nippers pumped around Garlandtown are still a gun bait. Hard body lures such as the Daiwa Double Clutch’s and soft plastics in the 2.5” - 4” size will all account for bream and flathead. Surface lures are also worth a shot now. The weed beds from Preddy’s wharf along past the hole in wall have also been producing good catches of flathead on the drift. Good reports of Estuary Perch in front of the hospital have also been reported.
The place to be at the moment! The upper sections of the system continue to fish well with good size whiting being taken on squirt worms and surface lures. Four ways has consistent catches of flathead, bream and the odd Jewie in the deeper holes, while the lower sections continue to produce also. All the aforementioned techniques will put you in with a better than good chance of hooking up.
Rock and Beach
The rock and beach fishing continues the same as the previous few weeks. Look for gutters on the beach, washes off the rocks to produce a few fish. Speaking of rock fishing, have you considered wearing a floatation device whilst fishing exposed ledges. While none of our areas are declared areas that require a PFD to be worn as legislated, it doesn’t take more than a second for you to end up in the drink. Come in and we can show you the options if you are interested.
Reports of good mixed bags of snapper, mowies and flathead continue to filter through. There is also the odd Gummy shark thrown in to spice things up! Start looking in 30-40m of water.
The following report is brought to us by Adam – our guru in the Snowies.
Snowy mountains lake fishing has been a bit patchy this past week. Lake Jindabyne has been the most productive location for bait and lures. Spinning the fringes or swimming some worms of an evening is getting good results.
Thredbo river is flowing well with plenty of 40cm trout being caught on fly and spin gear.
Eucumbene river is patchy, if you can put the miles in and target areas that the general public doesn’t get too has seen some better sizes and numbers landed.
Murrumbidgee river, floating bait and flicking lures is seeing plenty of little fish caught and released.
Lake Eucumbene is at 30% capacity.
Lake Jindabyne is sitting steady at 66% capacity.
Tantangara Dam is now at 27% capacity and fishing well.
The snakes are out so tread with caution and don’t forget your snake bite kit.
Tight lines my friends and remember “every day’s a good day for fishing … “
