A second body has been located after two fishermen were reported missing in the Snowy Mountains earlier this week.

NSW Police were called to Lake Eucumbene, northwest of Cooma at around 11.15pm on Wednesday following reports two men were missing.

The men, both aged 73, had gone on a fishing trip near Adaminaby, but when they failed to return home that night, their concerned families raised the alarm.

The search will continue for a second fisherman who is still missing in Lake Eucambene.
The second fisherman was found on Sunday.

Police, Marine Rescue, the State Emergency Service and the Westpac Helicopter commenced a search of the waterway and nearby bushland.

Hours later they located the body of a man.

On Sunday morning, authorities confirmed they had located the body of a second man at Eucumbene Dam.

A report will be prepared for the coroner.
