Winter trout closures starts June 11

Winter trout closures starts June 11
03 Jun 2013 - NSW DPI

Anglers looking to catch a trout are reminded that the June long weekend is their last opportunity to fish in designated streams and rivers across NSW, as the fishing season closes in these waters over winter.

Department of Primary Industries (DPI), Senior Fisheries Manager Inland, Cameron Westaway, said the annual closure will start on Tuesday 11 June and re-open for the October long weekend on Saturday 5 October 2013.

“This closure allows brown and rainbow trout to breed uninterrupted during their annual spawning run, while also allowing trout fishers to fish during both the June and October long weekends,” Mr Westaway said.

“Anglers can continue fishing for trout during the annual closure, without breaking the rules, at any of the trout dams across the State that have been stocked as part of the NSW DPI fish stocking program.

“Popular winter fishing spots include Lakes Jindabyne and Eucumbene, Oberon Dam near Bathurst, Tantangara and Talbingo Dams near Tumut and Lake Wallace and Thompson’s Creek Dam near Lithgow.

“DPI, in conjunction with local acclimatisation societies, has been stocking trout dams and rivers in NSW for many years.

“During the 2012/13 season, around 2.7 million trout and salmon were stocked in NSW waterways, consisting of approximately 1.8 million rainbow trout, 630,000 brown trout, 150,000 Atlantic salmon and 114,000 brook trout.”

DPI, Director of Fisheries Compliance, Glenn Tritton, said it is an offence to fish in trout streams during the closed season for any species of fish and any persons found fishing can be issued with on-the-spot fines of $500.

“Fisheries officers will be patrolling the State’s waterways to ensure that fishers are adhering to the trout closure,” Mr Tritton said.

“Fishers heading to one of the trout dams this winter are reminded that they are required to have a current NSW recreational fishing licence on them at all times while fishing.”
