Trout Closure

Trout closure to begin June 13

Quick reminder – this long weekend is your last opportunity to fish designated streams and rivers across NSW for trout before the traditional fishing season closes in these waters over the winter months.

The closure allows brown, rainbow and brook trout to breed uninterrupted during their annual spawning run. The annual closure starts on Tuesday 13 June and will re-open in time for the October long weekend at Midnight Friday the 29th of September.

You can continue to fish for trout during the annual closure at any of the trout dams across the State. This includes Lakes Jindabyne and Eucumbene, Oberon Dam near Bathurst, Tantangara and Talbingo Dams near Tumut and Lake Wallace and Thompson’s Creek Dam near Lithgow.

Detailed information on the fishing rules can be found in the NSW Freshwater Fishing Guide:
