I know spring is supposed to breezy, but the last week or so has been ridiculous.
Thankfully, with conditions this weekend looking pretty stable, local anglers have a chance to sample improving fishing on the south coast and in the mountains.
On the coast, anglers fishing the upper reaches of the estuaries are scoring a mix of bass and estuary perch.
These fish are deep in the snags, so that's where your lure needs to be.
Try a soft plastic or a prawn-imitation lure. The perch have been partial to crab imitations, too.
The estuaries are also producing one or two solid shallow water flathead.
Anglers experimenting with surface lures and large soft plastics fished almost unweighted are reporting encouraging results, with fish to 80cm on offer.
If you can find them, the Crossfire range of surface lures is definitely worth getting your hands on, with the 110mm version fooling plenty of flatties of late.
There are some big fish being caught at Lake Jindabyne.
A couple of large Atlantic salmon have been taken on trolled lures. These fish are former Gaden Trout Hatchery breeding stock, and weigh up to 5kg.
Jindabyne fishos also have an opportunity to lock horns with one of 130 ex-brood stock rainbows recently liberated into the lake.
These fish are just like the ones released into Eucumbene in winter - big and feisty. They'll certainly pull some string.
Anglers sight fishing the shoreline at Jindabyne are spotting good numbers of browns in the shallows, but they're extraordinarily hard to tempt with fly or lure.
A bit of breeze to ruffle the surface always makes the fish a little less spooky, and breeze shouldn't be too hard to find at the moment!
