Welcome to the registration for the 2021/22 Snowy Trout Challenge!
The 2021/22 Snowy Trout Challenge (STC) has 500 large tagged rainbow trout awaiting your hook.
Anglers of all ages are able to register for the chance to win a '$500 Cash Prize' generously sponsored by the Snowy Mountains Chambers Alliance, drawn at the end of the event in June 2022. (Register below)
Upon catching a prized Rainbow Trout (specially selected, tagged and released for the STC) you are then eligible to go into the Catch Draw for prizes.
Prizes will be finalised soon aligning with the re-opening of regional travel in NSW and information posted to the Facebook page.
When you catch a White Tagged Trout in the Snowy Mountains this Season, you must register your catch here https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/TDSQ33T
to be included in the prize draw.
The STC is an annual event (inaugural 2020-21) initiated by local Chambers of Commerce from Lake Eucumbene, Jindabyne, Cooma and Bombala, and is supported by Snowy Monaro Regional Council.
All of the organisers are volunteers and are eager to see our visitors to the Snowy Mountains enjoy their Summer stay by having a go at catching some of the biggest rainbows we've released into the lakes.
We would like to thank Mitch Elkins and staff at Gaden Trout Hatchery, Jindabyne (Department of Primary Industries) for tagging and releasing 500 large Rainbow Trout into the local waterways for the 2021/22 Snowy Trout Challenge.
The event is open from 1 October 2021 to 31 May 2022.
