THE NSW trout fishing season re-opens this Saturday, September 29. Trout dams remain open to fishing throughout the year.

When the season opens a minimum size limit of 25 cm, daily bag limit of two and possession limit of four trout again applies to the Thredbo and Eucumbene Rivers and other fly and lure only waters in NSW. The minimum size limit in other general trout waters is 25 cm, bag limit of 5, possession limit of 10.

The trout fishery will be under a bit of pressure this summer with the entire state in drought and no relief expected in the coming months. Snowy Mountains storages are creeping up as the winter snow melt starts to fill the dams but even so they are very low. Eucumbene is sitting at around 20%, Jindabyne at around 65% and Tantangara is at about 55% (but rising quickly).
