Eucumbene River mouth

As you can see the Lake has dropped a little now at 47% and steady at the moment but as we all know that can change at anytime Portal still closed and Tantangara at 21% and steady we have had a little rain which has put a bit of colour in the river still plenty of hoppers about and the dry fly fishing has been excellent so I’m told.

Dragon / Damsel fly feeders

I have been watching these fish for some days now I’m pretty sure I wont be catching them but that doesn’t stop me trying and in the mean time they are teaching me more about what goes on out there in the fish world to watch them cruse into the shallows and wait for the next target to come along and you can tell when there looked in on one they may follow it for a few seconds then a couple tail beats and fly out of the water grab the Damsel land and swim out into the deep all in the same motion truly amazing .

Hopper fishing the Eucumbene River

The water is very cool almost cold wet wading on a hot day chasing Trout with hoppers my favourite way to pass the day in summer it has been very hot for the mountains but the good falls of rain in the high country on a weekly schedule are certainly keeping the river cool the lakes have stopped dropping and all the planets are lining up for a great Australia day long weekend .
