the rainbows I'm not sure about....I heard they stocked it a few years ago..but that was from a local....not a fact from fisheries

Lake Eucumbene is receiving a guaranteed 150,000 Rainbows a year at present but all the Browns are wild. As to Brook Trout Lake Jindabyne receives 50,000 fingerlings a year and some reasonable fish are caught from time to time but as far as I know Lake Tantangara has never been stocked with them so if they are in the creek mentioned perhaps they were stocked by accident with Rainbows? Who knows!

great Imfo there....thank you for that.



Going back 10 yrs ago it was very easy to catch 30 or 40 rainbows over a week end but then they died out....nobody coukd explain why.....hence the stocking program.

for the record ive caught brook trout in lots off streams in the snowies...

cheers bm

Any good size to them, or all pretty small?
