The rainbow trout resurgence has been one of the highlights of freshwater fishing this autumn.
For a few seasons, especially at the height of the drought, rainbow trout were few and far between in the mountain lakes and rivers.
A few worried anglers were concerned they'd disappeared for good!
But on the back of a wet summer and an even wetter start to autumn, rainbow trout have rebounded with a vengeance, dominating anglers' bags for the first time in years.
Trollers at Eucumbene landed some beautifully conditioned rainbows over the Anzac Day long weekend, including a smattering of 50cm-plus fish.
Shore-based fishing around the lake has been difficult because of the rapidly falling water levels, but bait fishers prepared to persist and move around are also catching some super rainbow trout, mainly on Powerbait.
Rainbows are also prevalent in the rivers and streams and they're providing mountains of fun on fly gear.
More fish could enter the rivers as the brown trout spawning run gathers pace, with rainbows often chasing their speckled counterparts into the streams to feed on their eggs.
The South Coast estuaries are cooling down but that hasn't slowed the bite.
Bream, trevally, tailor and salmon are dining out on packed schools of bait, primarily in the lower reaches.
Hordes of chopper tailor are destroying everything in their path in the lower Moruya River, but underneath the baby choppers are some decent bream and trevally, if your bait or lure can make it that far!
Salmon and tailor are in excellent numbers around the breakwalls and rock ledges. Tailor favour the incoming tide but you'll find salmon all day long.
Glamour weather conditions have made it a joy to drift the reefs and gravel patches for sand flathead, which are abundant in about 40 metres of water.
Huge catches have been taken off Tuross and Congo, with a few sharks and other reef species thrown in for good measure.
