  1. Yeh was going to go below little or hit the Jenolan @PaddyT that spot looks awesome @Yes Dear
  2. Very nice brown mate! Yeah I’ve got a Subaru so may suss our the duckmaloi. @PaddyT do you mean lots of water in the blue mountains? Coxs, little, Jenolan etc? Have you been fishing up there recently and had much luck? think I gotta stop asking questions and just get out there!
  3. Yes Dear do you know if Fish River is fishing well nowadays?? Or any river spots west of the mountains you guys know of? Would love to fish somewhere out there also. Paddy T I’m afraid I haven’t been yet. House work has had me tied down 🙄 keen to go ASAP but shame the snakes are out already, was looking forward to not having to be on high alert the entire time! Ah well next winter. Id think realistically now my next adventure will be after opening weekend so would be keen to go somewhere west of the mountains if anyone has any spots for a camp and fish that might be less crowded? (Do
  4. Haha all good lads. Either way, bloody cold. Appreciate the comments. Rick we’re talking hiking into the unrestricted areas that aren’t classified as general trout stream and open all year 👍
  5. Volitan! Thanks so much for the info mate, much appreciated. Will be sure to give a few of those ideas a try and yeah love the sounds of being able to walk one way only. James, -16! Bloody hell, was looking at getting a new sleeping bag but wasn’t planning for those types of temps. My only worry with the Cox’s is the carp but I guess they may not be as bad in the upper reaches around Lake Lyell...
  6. Ah yeah nice one Paddy, you reckon the tracks down to Cox’s campground would be shot to pieces even for a 4WD? sounds like that campground isn’t the best for car camping anyway. Would be keen to get in there though
  7. Hey guys anyone fished the little river? Was thinking of driving to Cox’s River campground and walking down from there. Would be great to be able to car camp somewhere that’s open in winter too if anyone has any spots? (River fishing only for me
  8. Gday guys, finally off on my next overnight fishing adventure (pending auntie Gladys giving us the ok). Looking at heading down to Tumut before season closes. Anyone got any good spots worth flicking a line or any rivers to focus on? Would love to find some really beautiful smaller water but with some deeper holes. We will just be walking and wading. Any tips on rivers that are going well recently would be great too. Thanks!!
  9. You guys think most of the blue mountains rivers will be in pretty good shape (plenty of water) after all that rain? Also, how long do rivers generally stay at a good level for after big rain before they return to their lower levels again? i was gonna give the Jenolan or somewhere around there a go in a couple weeks time. Any thoughts/advice appreciated thanks
  10. Yeah thanks guys. Have heard those dams and lakes are good. Beauty wcurral! I’m more into river fishing though. Always exciting finding the next deep pool around the bend ya know.
  11. Hi guys, Wondering if anyone has been trout fishing recently and has any reports on any Blue Mountains rivers or nearby? Or if anyone could provide thoughts on if any of those rivers would be fishing better now after the rain? I hiked into Jenolan river in October and it was low but got some great trout, see below. Keen for another adventure if anyone has any tips of good spots to try it would be much appreciated! cheers
  12. Hi guys, went down to the Jenolan on the weekend and had a great time. Bloody beautiful and remote. Thanks Wcurral for the tips. caught 3 beautiful rainbow on celtas. River was very low but still some nice pools. Bloody tough walk out that almost killed my brother in law ha! Can see why it’s pretty rarely fished. saw to black snakes, had a nice cook up on the fire and all around great time. Very keen on trying somewhere else for my next adventure.. if anyone has any tips it would be great! (Somewhere with a flatter walk would be cool Sounds like the Cox’s down from L
  13. haha awesome stuff thanks wcurrall! Will definitely be giving this spot a go and will let you know how it turns out
  14. Hi PaddyT, thanks a lot for the reply. Mmm that's a shame you think it may be too dry for rivers at the moment, I really have my heart set on them rather than lakes. I have been looking at Fish River and Duckamaloi on google maps up around Oberon and some youtube vids which looked great but i suppose they may be from before the drought! Maybe someone else will have some intel anyway. In the meantime I will have a look south of Black Springs... assuming you mean Campbells River. Thanks again
  15. Hey folks, Have just joined up to this forum as I have exhausted most online avenues for researching best options to try for a trout or 2 in and around the Blue Mountains. Basically it will be my first time fishing the area but have done a fair bit of freshwater fishing in Canada and NZ and love it. I am wanting to try somewhere potentially over the long weekend and would be more than happy for a bit of a hike/bush bash in to get to a good spot and then camp overnight. I am hoping someone would be kind enough to give me a tip or 2 about areas to try and with some consider
