Spread the word among the fishing fraternity as 500 tagged rainbow trout will soon be released to kickstart the 2022-23 Snowy Trout Challenge.
The large trout will be released into Lake Eucumbene, Lake Jindabyne plus Lake Crackenback and anyone who catches the 2022-23 yellow tagged fish can register their catch to win cash prizes.
The beauty being, you may catch a tagged fish in October or November and still be eligible for the draws all the way until the end of April.
The Snowy Trout Challenge will embark on its third season, and it’s set to be the best yet. Huge thanks must go to the sponsors who have contributed to the sponsorship cash pool, where every two weeks commencing November 13, one lucky fish number will be drawn out.
The challenge is seven months of fishing and runs until end of April 2023.
This season draws are every two weeks instead of monthly, giving anglers more opportunities to win.
Gaden Trout Hatchery have been nurturing the trout all winter long and they will be released in early October. Stay tuned to the Snowy Trout Challenge Facebook page for all updates.
To enter you must catch a tagged rainbow trout with this year’s tag. When you do, photograph yourself with your fish and tag and then proceed to the Facebook page or the linktr-ee website link to record your fish details. You are then entered into the cash draw.
Participants can enter the ‘participation draw’ even if you don’t catch a fish, the cash prize drawn at the end of the challenge season. Good luck and happy fishing.
Fish released in early October and will be posted on Snowy Trout Challenge Facebook when released.
STC 2022-23 tagged fish once released are eligible once they are caught to go into the draw. Just enter via Catch Survey.
When you catch a STC 2022-23 tagged fish, you must photograph the fish and tag and then fill out all details in the Catch Survey, and upload the photos.
All information is on the linktr-ee website link here.
Stay tuned to the Snowy Trout Challenge Facebook for all updates.
First $1000 draw is on November 13, then every fortnight until end of April.
Participants are all encouraged to enter the ‘Participants Draw’ regardless of if you catch a fish or not. There will be a cash prize at the end of the challenge for participants.
All fish have been bred at Gaden Trout Hatchery in Jindabyne. The STC thanks the Gaden Trout Hatchery staff and DPI Fisheries for their contribution to fishing in the Snowy Mountains.
