Thredbo is a Blue Ribbon Fly Fishing River.
The New South Wales state fisheries classify streams throughout the state for the quality of the fishing. It is no surprise to find that the Thredbo River is classified as a “Blue Ribbon” stream for trout fishing. This means that only Lure and Fly fishing are permitted in the stream. The river is also closed to fishing from the June Long Weekend until the October Long Weekend. You will need a fishing license -the same as required for coastal fishing- but if you don’t have one you can purchase one at Thredbo’s chairlift ticket office.
The river offers a wide range of terrain from the high country meadows around Dead Horse Gap to the exciting gorge fishing just below Thredbo village to the big pool fishing around Ski Tube and lower down. There are also some great spots to fish right in Thredbo Village, so the fishing is literally on your door step. There are expert guides in the Village who can take you for morning or afternoon trips in search of a big brown trout and fill you in on the skills you need to fish successfully.
Fish the Snowy Mountains lakes.
The lakes created for the Snowy Scheme offer some of the best freshwater fishing in the country. Whether you are bait fishing, lure fishing or fly fishing there are plenty of fish includingsome monsters of the deep to make lake fishing both entertaining and rewarding. In winter there is great fishing in the lakes like Jindabyne and Eucumbene with very big fish coming to the surface to feed.
