Fishing

An abundance of fishing opportunities await you within the Elm Cottage backyard, the Snowy Mountains region. With 6 rivers and many streams to choose from including the Mighty Murray and Murrumbidgee Rivers you quickly become intrigued in the art of trout fishing be it Fly Fishing or spinning, Snowy Mountains stream fishing quickly has you hooked.

The River fishing season is open from the October long weekend until the Queen’s Birthday weekend in June, be sure to have an up to date fishing license which are readily available at Tumut’s Fishing Camping and Outdoor store in Tumut. For all the latest bites and lures David’s the man 6947 1100.

Not to be out done our backyard includes Blowering, Talbingo and Jounama dams which hold over 10 tens the volume of water in Sydney Harbour, so fishing on these dams draws people from all over the state. Numerous varieties of fish are caught in these three dams that leave many an angler with a smile on the face and a full esky.

One of Tumut's best local fishing spots lies on the Tumut River between the Riverglade Caravan Park and Mill Angle, or at the footbridge running over the Tumut River near the Snowy Mountains Trout Farm. The Thomas Boyd Trackhead on the Goobragandra River also makes for scenic and successful fishing.

Before you bait up make sure you are aware of the rules and regulations covering fishing.  There is a bag limit of five fish per day in the rivers, 10 for dams and the size limit is 25cm for trout (tip of snout to tail).

So please check with David at Tumut’s Fishing Camping and Outdoor store in Wynyard Street, he‘s open most days.
