The Snowies offer a myriad of fishing environments ranging from alpine streams, world-renowned rivers, and lakes such as Eucumbene, Jindabyne and Khancoban Pondage.
If the thought of tickling a trout has ever tickled your fancy, a trip to the Snowy Mountains is a must as it is New South Wales’ premier trout fishing region.
In spring and summer, fishing takes over as one of the mountain’s most popular activities, with trout the most sought after fish.
With expert guides willing to take you to top fishing spots and share their angling secrets, no experience is necessary. Besides, what better way to experience the tranquillity of the Snowies than from the peace of a fishing boat?
It is possible to go fishing in winter, but only on lakes and reservoirs, as most streams are closed from the Queen’s Birthday weekend in June to the first weekend in October.
Anglers must always carry an inland fishing licence available from many service stations and tackle shops in the region.
