Lake St Clair ( Glennies Creek Dam) . NSW

Situated 25 km north of Singleton in the foothills of the Barrington Tops National Park, Lake St Clair provides an expanse of water 15 kilometres long and up to 3 kilometres wide. It has a storage capacity of 283,000 million litres. About half the volume of Sydney Harbour.
The dam wall is 67 metres high. When full, the lake has a surface area of 1620 ha.
Glennies Creek Dam is a curved earth and rockfill embankment with a concrete slab on the upstream face to prevent water from seeping through.
A 60 metre high control tower with variable level inlets allows the quality and temperature of water released from the dam to be selected.
This protects the animal and plant life within the river downstream of the dam by ensuring that the water released is similar to the water they would inhabit naturally.
The Gelnnies Creek Dam / Lake St Clair is appoximately 40 km upstream from the junction of Glennies Creek and the Hunter River.

Stocked fish: Australian Bass, Golden Perch, Silver Perch.
Other: Eels, Eel-Tailed Catfish & Carp

The recreation area has electric BBQ, hot water, showers and toilet facilities. Camping is permitted at the Lake. Fees apply.

All forms of boating are permitted on Lake St. Clair. There is a boat ramp at the camping area. An exclusion zone exists near the dam wall.

Fish present in lake: Australian Bass, Golden Perch, Silver Perch, Eels, Eel-Tailed Catfish and carp.
Bass, Golden Perch and Silver Perch are stocked by the Hawkesbury Nepean Bass Anglers Assn & the Singleton Flyfishing Club using funds from Recreation Fishing Trusts.
