Good reports this week of bream and trevally being caught around the Quarry wharf area and even better reports of large flathead laying around in the shallows, so with the weather warming up it’s nearly time to break out the surface lures!
Great reports this week of bream up to and around 35 cm and flatties to 55cm being caught in both the oyster leases and up river around the rocky edges. These fish were caught on Jackson 70mm athletes and Daiwa double clutch in the 60 mm size. Good numbers of perch are being caught up the back of the system - try using a very lightly weighted Gulp crabbies as these fish are deep in the snags and hard to get out.
Rocks and beaches
Reports this week of large drummer, bream and luderick hanging around most headlands with the bait of choice being peeled prawns or cunjie. The salmon schools have been a bit hit and miss this week as they are moving around a fair bit but when you can find them Arma metal slices around 40 grams and pilchards on a paternoster rig will do the trick. Squid are still being caught around Bingie with some lobsters being trapped around Pedro/Congo area.
Good numbers of flatties are still being caught around 60 metres of water from Broulee down to Tuross with some nice snapper, morwong and gummy sharks also being caught in the same area. For those of you that like to throw some plastics around some nice reds have been caught in close around the surf club down to Congo.
The following report is brought to us by our guru in the Snowy Mountains – Adam!
Spring has arrived bringing along some much welcomed warmer temps and lovely sunshine, this nice spring weather is forecast to change late this week with lower temps, possible rain and snow down to 1000m.
This warmer spring weather got the snow melting up top producing better flows to the rivers just at the right time as the rainbow trout have started their annual spawning run.
Lake Jindabyne 67%. This past week has been producing some nice Browns up to 60cm and in great condition, mostly caught from those spinning the edges. I’m hearing they have released around 130 more ex brood stock Rainbows into Jindy!
Lake Eucumbene’s at 25%. its been touch and go this week - on today and shut down the next. “The old timers say, If Jindy is fishing well Euc is slow! The guys & girls trolling are picking up the usual sized fish in the 40cm range, just nothing consistent.
Tantangara Dams 26% capacity. Access is okay but advised to stick to high ground as the edges are slippery. Check the weather forecast as it could receive more snow.
Tight lines my friends and remember “Every days a good day for fishing … “
