Gaden trout hatchery open day

Jindabyne’s Gaden Trout Hatchery is the venue for a Family Picnic Day this Saturday, November 6.

NSW Minister for Primary Industries, Steve Whan said the free event will have something for the whole family to enjoy and is a great opportunity for the community to learn more about the breeding facility.

The Gaden Hatchery is a breeding centre for rainbow trout, brown trout, brook trout and Atlantic salmon and supplies fingerlings for stocking waterways all around NSW.

Fisheries staff will be conducting free hatchery tours at 10am, 12pm and 2pm to give visitors the chance to view the breeding ponds, aquariums and exhibits.

Planned activities include trout cooking demonstrations, fly fishing casting lessons, kids’ catch and release fishing, pony rides, live music and local produce stalls.

The Gaden Trout Hatchery Family Picnic Day is a free event and will be held from 10am to 4pm. The hatchery is located at 224 Gaden Road just out of Jindabyne on the road to Perisher.
