The rain of last weekend certainly got the Eucumbene river back to its very best with the high water the fish moved in even with all the heavy coloured water and the normal leaf material they navigated their way in but as the season has shown us this is not a normal year as quickly as the river came up it dropped and with the dropping river the big run of fish slowed down to the ones that have to go. The fish are still moving in but nowhere near as many fish the river is still a little higher than it was before the rain but still very hard work for the Browns of any size to move in. As I have said the season appears to be a month behind this year so the best is yet to come .
Still no rain and the river is gin clear with most morning this week being below zero condition have been very tough but if you stick to it the rewards will come a very nice Brown landed by Chilli
Just thought I would attempt to bring everyone up to date with the spawning run the fish have been steadily moving into the river some nights in there tens and other nights in there pairs or foursomes and then there’s plenty of nights they push in and then return to the lake I saw this with my own eye’s last week when I was guiding a couple of clients it was unbelievable they swam back past us in a line like a massive snake 2 or 3 fish wide and 5mts-7mts long back down 2 sets of rapids and heading towards the lake . The fishing at the moment isn’t easy in fact it’s quite technical at times and you need to be willing to change tactics if needed. I still think the large fish move in about this time of year and I will be up there checking to see how the numbers are again this week as I do every week and have done for the last 20 years. The rain should see a good run of fish but with no rain predicted for the next 12 days anything could happen at any time once they make their mind up they just go in my opinion 101/2lbs of Euc river gold Length 80cms. Well done Mimi
This picture was taken 18.4.17 as you can see the river is low some fish have moved in but not many. We had some good rain around 25 mil at Kiandra the river came up and there was another run of fish and with good rain and snow down to 1000mts predicted over the Tuesday and Wednesday of this week I would say things are about to happen.
A small number of good quality fish have started to move into the river and this is how hard they are to see, the master of camouflage .
This picture was taken Saturday 8th April 2017 we have had some heavy snow falls of wet snow perfect for the Browns I will be walking the river today in about an hour. I think it is a little early but I try to walk the river once a week to get an idea of what’s happening lots of media jumping the gun this year for some reason business must be slow .
