Eucumbene in freefall

There are times when a picture is worth a thousand words (in this case make that pictures plus a video), and no more so than when it comes to Lake Eucumbene as it rockets down towards 20% – and presumably a long way further.

I had a short trip last week. Good mate Stephen was working in Canberra for the day and we stole a few afternoon hours at Seven Gates for some cracking fish; anything big with”Woolly” in the name, and tungsten on the head seemed to catch fish. On the weekend I spent some time droning video from Providence down to Anglers Reach. So enjoy the pictures and don’t stay away just because the lake is falling – it will come back, and as it rises the fish will be chasing food up the banks as they’re chasing the yabbies down right now. If you are going out, be very careful of the quicksand and mud – take a friend is my advice.

Drone video. All that river to fish – assuming it’s still exposed when the season opens…


Currently 23% – still a long way from 2007’s 8.98%.
