    Tough day on the Tumut River today. Flowing at 1700 which was wadable in bits. But no matter what I tried, ciuldnt even get a sniff. Few rises late this afternoon kept life interesting.

    Just great to be out on such a great day.




    Interesting, I was there today too And canned it after an hour. On fly, it’s a hard river I reckon even at 1700 I was wading and anything over mid calf felt a bit sketchy balance wise. Hardest thing I find is he lack of runs and fishy looking water to fish. Seems to be a lot of big fat glides mixed with large riffle sections and lots of deeper water.

    In the end, I was on my way back to Canberra so I went through the mountains and checked out the Eucumbene (7 degrees and sideways winds) and the the bidgee at bolero. Slightly warmer there and I picked up a pan size browny on a brown nymph in the hour I fished before pulling the plug to get warm.



    There is a current road closure application for the Tumut area affecting access to some of the waterways;

    I plan on being there tomorrow and the next few days so I hope its not an indication of things to come, but I do have a few other places I want to try as well. Did anyone have a look at the Gooba whilst there ?

    Good luck David. Should be great fun with festival on.
