Eucumbene – October 2020

A bit of a last minute dash up the hill paid off – with the high winds, we decided to leave the rivers and hit the lake which has reports that it was fishing well. We managed to get around a dozen fish to the net and missed a lot more. Not a lot of size to them, but all healthy and chunky for their size, definitley not complaining.

Eucumbene – September 2020

A quick dash up to the mountains for a fish and to burn some wood. The lake level is coming right up which has changed a lot of the bays which I think I had worked out. The good news there is that there is a lot of grass and weed now in the water which should make for great fishing in the coming warmer months.

Not a lot of action unfortunately but I managed to get 3 rainbows to the net in the afternoon, all blind casting off the points, but then it seemed to have completely shut down in the evening. I had intended to fish most of Sunday but the weather turned and after a couple of hours fishing in the wind and rain, I decided to retreat and head home.

Trout Opening – October 2019

A few days up the hill with Reid and JQ for NSW trout opening weekend. While few fish were landed it was perfect for a bit of a scouting mission to see the condition of the rivers and to checkout some new access.

Last fish for the season – June 2019

A quick trip up for the afternoon to fish some of my favourite water. While only weighing in a 1.5lbs, this chunky rainbow put a nice bend in the rod. I ended up landing 3 around a similar size, all off the top on small midge patterns. A good day out to mark the start of winter and the end of the NSW Trout season for me.

Tumut River – May 2019

I enjoy fishing the river at this level and it’s certainly the best fishing water in our region at the moment. Lots of great runs for nymphing. While we didn’t fish it too hard, we got plenty of fish to the net. Evan managed to land a nice rainbow around 50cm on the most ratty looking fly i’ve ever seen which goes to show that trout aren’t that fussy.
