Rainbows still getting jiggy with it
Sunday, 26 September 2010 10:15

With less than a week before the opening of the NSW trout season I can safely say that it will be a ripsnorter. The big dumping of snow during August followed by some of the biggest rainfall in years saw water levels on most nearby streams rise to levels not seen for around 20-to-30 years. This caused some lovely washouts to occur ridding the streams of significant amounts of debris that were largely remnants of the 2003 fires. The streams are now gin clear and the rainbows are still busy doing their curly action – hence don’t forget to bring your polaroids. Large groups of spawners can be seen close to the banks and often under overhanging bushes – so tread carefully and fish thoroughly – they are there – but please practice catch and release. Turning some rocks over this week also saw good numbers of nymphs and the recent spate of warmer weather will likely see some movement below the surface once water levels taper off a tad. So it all looks great for the opening weekend. Carry the usual array of bugs and nymphs and don’t be afraid to use the good old dropper as I am sure the dry on the warmer days will sucker some of the trout to the surface. With the lakes receiving great flow of late and water levels up significantly, some excellent lake fishing is also on the offing. Once the dead weed starts rotting the midge action will be on. Wade carefully, fish sections slowly and I am sure you get on to a few VERY big fish. Photo 1 - Thredbo River; Photo 2 - Moonbah River. David
