High Streams

High Streams

The area above the Murrumbidgee River, Eucumbene river, Tantangara dam and Kiandra offers glorious fly fishing opportunities.

Top End of Murrumbidgee River

The top end of the river have very small water ideal for 0 to 3 weight outfits. It offers high altitude fly fishing for small but brilliantly rainbow and brown trout.

The Cave Creek is another super little fishery in the area that supplies tiny rainbows and brown trout. But occasionally you'll find a better brown or maybe half a pound.

Mid Reaches of the upper Murrumbidgee

It is defined as the stretch from Long Plain Road to Dairymans Creek junction. On the river downstream there is a small gorge which was dominated by brown trout and some rainbows too.

Upper Murrumbidgee above Tantangara

Upper Murrumbidgee above Tantangara

The area is known for having good quality trout. There is some fabulous water and the track past the bridge is still good for walking access and ends at Haines Hut on the upper section of the Murrumbidgee Arm of the Tantangara Reservoir.

There is some reasonable fishing in the Tantangara Creek. A royal Wulff, Red Tag, Geehi Beetle and Parachute Adams are effective dries, and good nymphs include bead-head Hares Ear and pheasant tail nymphs. Hopper patterns are worth a try in season.

Tantangara Creek

The area offers reasonable fishing, it's just a short walk to the junction of the creek itself and the Murrumbidgee River. There is a good beat upstream towards the gorge with plenty of pools and runs to fish.

Upper Eucumbene River

The upper Eucumbene has been known for its distinctive fishing record. From a very small creek-like beginnings, it is quickly swollen by a myriad of feeder creeks and streams. These creeks and streams are a home to many fish such as brown and rainbows. They are abundant in the area especially during summer.
