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.

Buckenderra Sunset!

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.

Tumut River Brewing Co – give the Full Grunt APA or Tuckerbox Hoppy Lager a go!

Snowy Mountain Streams – October 2018.

Evan and I had this weekend booked in for a good month or so, since we both couldn’t fish opening weekend the plan was to make up for it by fishing the Tumut River as we were attending an event at the Brewery. But with the water flow at 9000ML and rising (my mate fishing Blowering mentioned the water level there dropped 1 meter overnight!), we decided to leave it and fish some smaller streams in the area, perfect for a 2-3wt setup.

A few fish were landed and some new access points and streams were found, so not all was wasted! Fishing these smaller streams meant the fish were extra spooky, so it’s motivation to work on my streamcraft and fly presentation a lot more.

Checkout Evans Chinese 7ft 3wt glass rod. Doing the job to this rising brown. For the price, I’m definitely going to pick one up…
