The popular Inland Fisheries Trout Weekend is on again this May and everyone is invited, click on the Trout Weekend flyer for more details and a map of how to get there.

Come and see hundreds of wild brown trout on their annual spawning run from Great Lake in the Liawenee Canal. Watch wild trout being stripped of eggs for culture. Catch a trout for dinner from the kidís fish-out pond. Visit trade exhibits, with boats and fishing gear. Enjoy refreshments, competitions and give-aways. View displays about fisheries management. Learn whatís happening around the fishery. See live freshwater fish aquaria. Ask questions of Inland Fisheries staff. Talk to trout fishing and fly-tying experts. Take a helicopter ride above the Lake or a bus ride along the Canal. Buy something special, including a Trout Fish Tasmania souvenir. Make it a day out with the family or a weekend away.

The event is held at the Inland Fisheries Service Field Station, Liawenee, Great Lake and runs from 10 am to 3 pm on both days. It takes about one and a half hours to drive to Liawenee from Launceston or Hobart via the Highland Lakes Road. The weather is very changeable in the highlands, and normally cold, so it is important to dress warmly.
