Lake Jindabyne Trout Fishing Report. September 15th 2014

– Please remember all rivers and streams in the Snowy Mountains are closed to fishing until the 4th October!

We have had some warm days in the mountains over the last week which has meant that there has been a lot of snow melt and lots of water for the rivers and streams, so the lake is coming up again bringing the trout close to shore on the lake.
Checked that Thredbo River this morning and the water was running nice and clear and there were quite a few rainbows to be seen in the shallows.
It will be interesting now to see what this week brings as we have rain predicted again tonight with showers and snow up high for the next few days and even ‘maybe’ snow down to 900 metres on Thursday (BOM prediction).
This of course is perfect conditions for spawning rainbow trout, so most of the run may be over by the river opening weekend in a few weeks’ time. Other than that there has not been a lot of change in the fishing from last report.
Let’s have a look at what the fishing is going to be like over the next few weeks.

The lake level is at 83% and has risen a few inches since the last report. The temperature today was 10 degrees.
Best methods to catch a trout.
Best method – Bait off the shore on calm days, lure early and late or on windy days.
Best lake lure –Rainbow trout pattern Rapalas and Tasmanian Devil in green and gold.
Best lake area – Hatchery Bay is still fishing well but anywhere is OK.
Best fly method lake – Hamills Killer, Black Woolly Bugger and Williamson’s Goldfish.
Best River Fly Fishing– Rivers Closed to fishing until the 4th October.
Best River Lures – Rivers closed to fishing until the 4th October.
Let’s have a look at what the fishing is going to be like over the next few weeks.

Spring is here and so as the water warms that little bit more we may see a return to some good surface trolling over the coming weeks. It is certainly a week of warm weather expected this week.
If trolling, start the day with a surface line out and at least 50 metres drop back, the more the better on still sunny days. Stay close to the shore and target rocky points and other snags like the many trees in the water at the moment.
Try lead line at 2 to 3 colours. (20 to 30 metres of line out) later in the day or on still days.
Best colour Tassies have been green and gold yellowing type Tassies at the moment, maybe Y82, Holographic or Brown Bomber as well. Rapalas like the Brook Trout pattern of Perch pattern have still been very successful.
Little bit of downrigging at 20 feet on the bright sunny days. Use longer dropbacks for best results.

Lake Bait Fishing
(Primarily most rivers and streams in the Snowy Mountains Region are fly and lure only, We recommend that you first check with the Department of Industry and Investment NSW (NSW Fishing rules) as to which rivers in the area you can legally bait fish in. IF IN DOUBT DON’T BAIT FISH in the RIVERS!)
Shore based bait fishing continues to be good with local Scrubbies, and artificial baits the best.
The Claypits, Hatchery Bay, Town Centre near front of Banjo Patterson Park and The Snowy Arm are better spots.

Lake Spinning
No change in the lure spinning. Same lures are still working but like the trolling most lures will work ok if you’re in the right place for an aggressive trout. Blades in gold have been doing well at the moment. Try a Strike Pro Cyber Vibe 50 or a TT Switchblade Sunset Gold.
The Tasmanian Devil Holographic, Pink, orange, Y82 and Y48 have all been good and so is the Holographic.
Minnow lures like floating Rapalas, (especially jointed Rapalas), Stumpjumpers and other minnow style lure in either natural rainbow trout and brown trout patterns or gold colours to represent the Jindabyne goldfish that the trout love to chase and eat.
Don’t stay in one place too long and only put in a couple of casts in each area.
Shallow areas try Gillies Feathertails and Tailwalkers which are new products worth a look.
Some new lures to try in the dark are the new glow Blue Fox Vibrax spinners. Charge them up with a torch or camera flash and watching them spin through the water is incredible, trout are very inquisitive and often hit the lure hard.
Call into my shop and I will show you some of the better soft plastics that we are having great success on over the last week. The ‘Spotted Brew’ Strike Tiger has especially been good over the last week.

River Spinning.
Rivers closed until the 4th October. Update Later this month.

Fly Fishing Lake
Polaroiding has just started and the fish are quite spooky.
Look for the fish before casting and you can either try a small nymph and an indicator and fish very slow or if the fish is a little more active a faster stripped black or olive Woolley Bugger, a Craig’s Night time or a Williamson’s Goldfish will be worth using.
The shallow bays on the lake are worth a try but you have to be very quite and not too many casts in one spot so as not to spook the trout.

Fly fishing Rivers and Streams
Rivers closed until the 4th October. Undate later this month.

ROD HIRE available from $15 a day.
For visitors to the Snowy’s we have a full range of fishing tackle for hire at my shop and fishing tours are now available.
Have you any photos that you can e-mail me?
I can use the information to add into my own reports and your photo might not only end up in my report but might also go into a draw for the best fish of the month which will win you a $50 Tassie Devil Tackle Pack.
